Moscow's new football forum announced

Sport Business News

In June 2011, Eventica is proud to be teaming up with insideworldfootball to launch an exciting new initiative: the first ever Inside World Football Moscow Forum, to be held at Moscow's prestigious Ritz–Carlton Hotel on 23–24 June.

The announcement of Russia's victorious World Cup bid in December 2010 was an exciting moment for the country, but it was the beginning of what promises to be a long and challenging journey. It will require the construction of a generation of new stadiums and the dramatic overhaul of the country's infrastructure, estimated by some to cost as much as $50bn. The Inside World Football Moscow Forum will, for the first time, bring together the key players involved in the 2018 FIFA World Cup – the Local Organising Committee, the Host Cities and Russian football governing bodies – with a wide range of international specialists. Participation is a must for any global firm looking to supply its services to Russia in the run–up to the World Cup, and for Russian organisations seeking to learn more about the latest in industry expertise. An intensive programme will cover construction, transport, legacy strategy, media solutions, raising sponsorship and many other aspects of organising a major modern sporting event. Insideworldfootball is the leading online news source on the business of international football, from its home at www. insideworldfootball. biz. As Eventica's partner for the Forum, it brings unrivalled knowledge of the industry, a highly respected team of experienced correspondents and excellent contacts for marketing of the event. This is the latest in a series of sport–related initiatives from Eventica. The company played a supporting role on the successful Russia 2018 World Cup bid campaign, organised the Global Sports Industry Congress in London (in 2009 and 2010) and has launched a specialised sport marketing arm, Mildberry Sports Lab.
