Some of the biggest names in sports sponsorship will be gathered at the Soccerex football conference which takes place in Dubai later this year.  They will be discussing burning issues in sponsorship – how football clubs can support sponsors, how to measure success in football sponsorship and how to create successful global campaigns.

Guest speakers at the seminar include Peter Harris, Global Sponsorship Director from Vodafone, Romy Gai, Managing Director of Juventus FC, Ricardo Fort, Head of Global Football Sponsorships from Coca Cola and Philippe Margraff, Chief Operations Officer, UEFA

More than 2,000 delegates from the football world will gather for the three day extravaganza to discuss the burning issues in football.  The event takes place at the spectacular Madinat Jumeirah Hotel in Dubai from November 13-15.

Soccerex commercial director James Worall said: “Since its formation nine years ago, Soccerex has grown out of all recognition and Soccerex in Dubai is our biggest success yet.

“Our mission is to support the development of the football industry by enabling organisations to learn, network and do business globally and the amount of interest around Soccerex in Dubai indicates that the sport is in a pretty healthy state.”

Confirmed attendees include FIFA, AFC, UEFA, The Premier League, Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal, Real Madrid, Barcelona, BSkyB. BBC, Adidas, Nike, Coca-Cola, Umbro, Microsoft, South African FA, South African Premier League, Bahrain FA, Qatar FA, UAE FA, Al Hilal, Boca Juniors, Kaizer Chiefs, Shaktar Donetsk and Galatasaray.
