Fri 17th Aug 2012 | Football Industry Events

Soccerex is delighted to announce that following an official invite from visiting senior Soccerex delegates the Federação Paulista de Futebol (FPF) President and FIFA Executive Committee member, Marco Polo Del Nero will be attending the Soccerex Global Convention alongside the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) President and 2014 LOC Chairman, José Maria Marin, who will be speaking at the opening ceremony in Rio de Janeiro, 24-28 November 2012.

José Maria Marin is the former governor of São Paulo and previously president of the FPF. He was the Vice President of the CBF representing the South Eastern region from 2008-2012 before becoming CBF president in March 2012, in the same month he was named Chairman of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Organising Committee.

Marco Polo Del Nero became president of the FPF in 2003 with a clear aim of strengthening the relationship between league clubs and the State of São Paulo. In 2007 he was inducted as a member of the Executive Committee of the Confederation of South American Football. Most recently he was appointed to the FIFA Executive Committee as one of only three South American representatives and became Vice President of the CBF representing the South Eastern region.                                                                                       

Speaking on his involvement at Soccerex, CBF President and 2014 LOC Chairman, José Maria Marin said:

“I am excited to be participating in the opening ceremony of my first Soccerex event, and look forward to exploring a Convention that has already made such a significant impact on our football business. It is a very important moment in our sporting history and events like this will help Brazil to lay the foundations for an excellent World Cup.”

Commenting on the announcement, Soccerex CEO Duncan Revie said:

“I am so pleased that these two senior figure heads in Brazilian Football have accepted our invitation to the Soccerex Global Convention in Rio de Janeiro. Mr Marin and Mr Del Nero are vital for the development and success of football in Brazil and the forthcoming FIFA World Cup. Their attendance at the Convention is a huge honour for us and confirms the event as the world’s leading football business event.”

The Soccerex Global Convention is a five day business event consisting of a comprehensive seminar line-up, a number of networking opportunities, a two-day football festival and a packed exhibition which is already close to selling out.

Held in a purpose-built venue within the Forte de Copacabana, with panoramic views of both the famous Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, the exhibition is a hub for business activity; as one of the main components of the convention it provides a platform for leading suppliers from around the world to showcase the latest industry products and services to delegates.
