Sportel, an organisation originally created to help bring together the worlds of media and sport, is celebrating its 30th year with four days of events at the Grimaldi Forum, some of which are open to the general public.

The event will run from 20th October until 3rd October and will host top level executives in the fields of sports broadcasting, international federations, digital platform and technology providers and sports marketing companies, all there to develop new business strategies and ascertain future trends and trials within the sports industry. 

Last year, Sportel saw more than 3,000 delegates and 968 companies from 78 countries attend and the event, and this year the expectation is even higher.

During the week, the public is invited to attend free open events such as lectures, screenings, and signing sessions with professional athletes from all over the world.

It all culminates on Wednesday 23rd October with the Sportel Awards Ceremony under the patronage of HSH Prince Albert II and the International Olympic Committee, where the best sporting images of the past year will be chosen by a panel of athletes, directors, Olympic committee members and official representatives of major media groups.
