On 10 and 11 May 2010 the 5th Annual SPONSORs Sports Media Summit is set to take place. After four years in the Frankfurt Commerzbank Arena, our two-day congress has outgrown its former home and has resettled in the ESPRIT Arena in Düsseldorf, Germany this year. Situated in the metropolis on the Rhine, the stadium ensures that our event can continue to expand and offers considerably more room for controversial discussions, informative speeches, and first-class networking.

Although many things have changed, the most important one remains: The Sports Media Summit and its supplemental exhibition are still Europe’s leading information and networking platform for top decision makers in the sport rights, broadcast & production, media, and advertising sectors.

This exclusive event will feature 60 experts addressing a range of hot topics within the industry. Hear from business giants like Christian Seifert (DFL) and Michael Vesper (DOSB), or get fascinating new looks into developing issues from figureheads like Olaf Coenen (Managing Director, EA Germany), Stefano Turconi (President Media Distribution, NBA), or Parm Sandhu (CEO, Unitymedia).

Topics on the agenda include the much-hyped 3D TV and the highly politicized advertising ban for German public networks. Google manager will explain YouTube’s planned transformation into a TV network and how it will enter the battle over coveted sport rights. The additional special-interest forums on Gaming, Mobile Devices, and Social Media guarantee a diverse range of issues will be covered.

Brand New: Learn everything you need to know about Broadcast & Production in our two specialty workshops! On the way from the Olympic Games in Vancouver to the South African World Cup, experts in the field have stopped off in Düsseldorf to discuss the industry’s breaking trends.
