MEI attended Global Sports Industry Congress 2010

Sport Business News

MEI Key Account Director Rachel Hughes represented MEI during the event and had a chance to engage with international speakers and attendees including Janine Pires from the Brazilian Olympic Public Authority and Dmitry Chernyshenko, CEO of the Sochi 2014 Olympics and Paralympic Games.

The hottest topic of the event was the current trend of emerging nations involvement in the delivery of Major Sporting Events. Speakers and panellists agreed that being awarded the honour of hosting a global sporting event should be an incentive for change in those emerging markets such as Brazil, Russia, India and South Africa rather than a reward for their economic growth. Over the next few weeks MEI shall be attending numerous events and conferences including Soccer Ex in Brazil and Technology World in London.
