Directors’ Club Set For Moscow Debut in 2015

December 18, 2014

iSportconnect is delighted to announce the Directors’ Club networking event, in association with PwC,  will take place in Moscow for the first time in 2015.

The event will make its debut in the Russian capital on 12 February 2015, as the Directors’ Club continues to spread to new markets.

The event will gather an elite group of sports industry executives for an open and practical discussion of the Russian sports business.

During the event, directors of companies and clubs that have achieved success in their sports projects will share their experiences and views on the challenges and opportunities of doing business in sport.

The Moscow Director’s Club will feature a special international guest speaker.

Among other participants in the event will be executives of major companies sponsoring Russian football, marketing leaders of major international companies that sponsor and supply Russian sport, as well as owners and top managers of major Russian companies looking to invest in sport.

Each Directors’ Club event offers an unrivalled opportunity to network with some of the most influential people in international sport and sponsorship. They provide countless opportunities for debate and discussion.

iSportconnect Directors’ Clubs have thus far been held in London, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Lausanne, Milan, Munich, New York and Paris, and are set to go to even more cities in 2015.

PwC Corporate Finance Partner Oleg Malyshev said: “This is a particularly interesting time in the development of Russian sport, with a real desire among leagues and clubs to establish sport as a viable business rather than just an area of corporate social responsibility. The Directors’ Club will be a great opportunity to explore this.”

iSportconnect Chairman Michael Cunnah said: “We are very excited to be taking the Directors’ Club to Moscow and have the opportunity to get a real insight into the sports business issues in Russia.”
