iSportconnect Agrees Media Partnership for 2014 City Events Conference

August 12, 2014

iSportconnect, the world’s largest private network for sport business professionals, has agreed a media partnership with GL Events for the 2014 City Events conference.

City Events, the conference specialising in city-hosted sporting events, will hold its fifth edition on November 13th and 14th in Paris, France, around the theme “Winning strategies for hosting sporting events.”

Last year, City Events brought together 250 participants from 24 countries to discuss, debate, and collaborate on the issues facing city-hosted sporting events, from the point of view of local organisers, private events rights owners, and international federations.

The conference takes a holistic view of the hosting process, from preparing a successful bid to ensuring a tangible legacy for citizens of the host city after the event.

As part of the deal iSportconnect will receive a special discount exclusive to their members.

Sree Varma, founder and CEO of iSportconnect, said: “We are delighted to associate with such a prestigious event.’”

Jacques Danger, City Events President, said: “We are really proud to count on the support of iSportconnect for this 5th edition of the international conference City Events.

“This sport business social media is a great way for our participants – among whom most of them are city/country/region’s representatives not familiar with this network – to be quickly in connection with the key stakeholders of the sport business industry and to build an efficient and useful network.”
