SPORTEL Rendez-Vous Bali: 22-23 February 2024  

The 2024 season will kick off with the second edition of SPORTEL Rendez-Vous Bali! The International Sports Market and Summit focusing on the APAC Market, will go back to Indonesia from 22-23 February 2024. Organized in partnership with Transvision and in collaboration with Java Festival Production and Cubmu, SPORTEL Rendez-vous Bali 2024 will take place in a new venue, the Intercontinental Bali Resort.

With a participation of more than 55% from the APAC market, the first 2023 edition was clearly a great opportunity for the SPORTEL community from Europe and the Americas to reconnect with the key decision makers from Indonesia, Asia and Oceania, following the global pandemic.

“Renewing SPORTEL in Bali is strategic considering the development of new technologies, digital engagement, innovation and esport sectors in the region. In addition, as the fourth largest population and one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, the Indonesian population has a massive interest in sports and there is still a huge development potential for sports broadcasting in the country,” explains Laurent Puons, CEO of Monaco Mediax.

New! SPORTEL Rendez-Vous Buenos Aires: 14-15 May 2024 

After numerous successful editions in Miami, SPORTEL has taken the decision to relocate its spring event dedicated to the Americas and head to a brand-new destination in 2024. SPORTEL is finally returning to South America, and will land for the very first time, in Buenos Aires, Argentina from 14-15 May 2024.*

South America is a region of exceptional sporting talent and diversity, offering significant expansion opportunities, notably in the sports business industry. SPORTEL Rendez-vous Buenos Aires will provide a unique platform to maximize and develop new activities regionally
and internationally.

“Developing the Americas market as a whole is one of our priorities. South America only represents 5% of SPORTEL’s participants. The capacity for growth is exponential. We are delighted to be able to offer our community new networking and business opportunities with
top-tier industry executives in Buenos Aires, a global sports capital and a focal point of this flourishing market,” stated Laurent Puons, CEO of Monaco Mediax. 

To organize this first Rendez-vous in ArgenIna, SPORTEL is joining forces with valuable partners who have an impressive background in the sports industry and with event production in the entertainment industry: J & S EG, represented by Jorge Strika and Sebastian Ibarrondo, together with Lions Sports & Media, represented by Daniel Tamborini and Martin Rey. Bamboo Business, represented by Marta Ortega, with a great track record in the commercialization of such events, will join them for this purpose. 

Jorge Strika commented: “It’s really challenging and exciting to organize such an event in my home country.” To his words Daniel Tamborini added: “I attended SPORTEL in Monaco several times, and it’s amazing not only to bring the event to Buenos Aires, but also to be a part of the organization.” Sebastian Ibarrondo, who has been to many sports industry events, concluded, “SPORTEL Rendez-vous Buenos Aires will be unique, because it brings the best trends, and also adds the passion of South American sports to the mix.” 

Marta Ortega, who made the connection between Monaco Mediax and J & S EG, concluded: “I’m very grateful to both parties for their trust and support from the very beginning and I’m thrilled to be working together on this exciting project.”

*The last SPORTEL in South America dates back to 2013, in the vibrant city of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
