Special World Cup Workshops at Soccerex Global Convention

Thu 1st Nov 2012 | Football Industry Events

Soccerex is delighted to announce two specially tailored workshops, focusing on the Base Camps and the Host Cities for the 2014 FIFA World CupTM, at this year’s Soccerex Global Convention in Rio de Janeiro on 24-28 November.

A vital part of any tournament is where teams are located throughout their stay in the host country. It is a crucial decision to make with a variety of issues affecting the team’s choice such as distance to group matches, altitude, climate, training facilities, accommodation and even the type of grass, as well as the debate between an urban or rural setting.

The ‘Base Camp’ workshop will provide a three-tiered approach covering all the key decision making groups: firstly World Cup winning legends Juliano Belletti and Carlos Alberto Parreira will provide a player’s perspective, reliving their own World Cup base camp stories. They will then be followed by federation representatives including English FA General Secretary Alex Horne, to discuss the issues in selecting the right base camp for the benefit of the team. Finally Ivor Hoff, Chief Director of Sport for Gauteng Province during the 2010 FIFA World CupTM, will provide an expert analysis on his experience of working for a base camp city and what Brazil can learn from South Africa. 

With 12 Brazilian host cities confirmed for the 2014 FIFA World CupTM, teams will be competing all over the country in different conditions and challenges, making it the biggest in the history of the competition. All 12 host cities have been invited to the Convention, where a debate will take place on the commercial opportunities remaining for the host cities, as well the opportunities for them during the World Cup and after the tournament has finished.  It will provide an exclusive chance to hear from key city representatives from host cities including Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Porto Alegre, Recife, Salvador and São Paulo.

The two workshops will be a part of a world class conference programme which will once again set the footballing agenda, with sessions tackling goal line technology, player ownership and transfers, sports rights, player development and a number of exclusive sessions with legends.

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.
