Soccerex has announced that FIFA president Gianni Infantino will be welcomed as guest of honour to Soccerex Connected, the company’s first digital event, to be held September 21-25, 2020 bringing together a global audience.
President Infantino will be speaking following a period of unparalleled disruption to sports worldwide, leading a five day sector-specific conference programme targeted towards highlighting and reviewing solutions to the many issues that the game’s stakeholders are experiencing.
Since his election in 2016, President Infantino has focussed on renewing FIFA’s mandate and leadership of the game worldwide, looking to increase transparency and accountability, whilst spurring growth and social development for all member associations through his FIFA 2.0 roadmap including programs such as FIFA Forward. Following his unopposed re-election in 2019 he unveiled ‘The Vision 2020-2023′ which further builds on these themes to ensure that the world governing body represents all stakeholders.
“We are obviously honoured to be welcoming President Infantino back to Soccerex, even more so to our inaugural digital event. 2020 has presented many challenges to those of us who work in football and we are sure that the event will provide the usual Soccerex insight and connections which are, if anything, even more valuable now. We are immensely grateful for the continued support of FIFA and look forward to working together to drive the industry forward.”
Held over five days, the event will bring together senior decision makers from across the globe for to view a conference programme filled with sessions covering all aspects of the game designed to provide relevant takeaways, alongside a package of exhibition and networking features to assist attendees in reuniting with their peers in the most effective way possible.
