Soccerex Launches New Barbados Event

Fri 13th Jun 2014 | Football Industry Events

Barbados will host its first Soccerex event this October, following the signing of a new event partnership between the Barbados Tourism Authority and Soccerex this week. 

The Soccerex Americas Forum will take place on 21-22 October at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre, on the stunning island of Barbados, bringing together the leading administrators and business figures within the Americas, as well as their global counterparts. 

Under the visionary leadership of President Jeffrey Webb, the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) are making huge developments in the region and are poised for further expansion, with plans for a Caribbean Premier League, Mexico's Liga MX recording the fourth highest average attendance of any professional league in the world and the MLS set to add four new franchises in the next three years.

The Forum will be the playing field for sports buyers, suppliers and key decision makers within the Americas - and the rest of the world - to network and do business.  The conference will feature an agenda-setting programme, covering topics such as league development, player development and retention and sport tourism - a key focus for countries within this region with their attractive climates and rich sporting culture.

There will also be a focus on major events with the 2016 Copa America and a potential CONCACAF 2026 World Cup bid high on the agenda. The event will include a host of footballing legends sharing their opinions on the beautiful game, including a review of the 2014 FIFA World CupTM.

Commenting on the new event, Petra Roach, Interim President and CEO, Barbados Tourism Authority, said: “We are proud and privileged to be the host location for this year’s Soccerex Americas Forum. 

“As a nation of sporting enthusiasts, we take football very seriously, and thus are delighted to be able to facilitate an event whereby the beautiful game is at the core of the discourse.”

Soccerex CEO Duncan Revie said: “I am delighted that our first Americas Forum will be held in Barbados, a country with a huge sporting passion. It will provide a great location to start our time in the region and to continue our efforts of strengthening football business within the Americas. 

“With all the beautiful island has to offer, there isn’t a better backdrop to do business.”
