Soccerex is delighted to announce a new event partnership with SportsMax, the Caribbean’s premier 24 hour Sports Cable channel, for the upcoming Americas forum, 21st-22nd October, taking place at the renowned Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre in Barbados.

The partnership sees SportsMax become an official event partner for the forum in a mutually beneficial deal that will boost SportsMax’s branding presence before and during the event.

Soccerex’s Marketing Director David Wright commented: ‘We are delighted to announce this partnership with SportsMax, an industry leader with a great presence throughout the Caribbean. We are sure the deal will be mutually beneficial and are excited about working alongside the expertise of one of the continent’s best broadcasters.’
