Padel best expo

The high octane Padel Best Expo is currently underway at the Grimaldi Forum featuring everything padel enthusiasts could wish for: the world’s leading padel brands and suppliers, celebrity appearances, and official competitions. 

On Sunday 7th April, the long awaited first edition of Padel Best Expo, organised by BSG Italy, kicked off, with Louis Ducruet officially opening the event by cutting the ribbon. Roberta Ceccarelli, CEO of BSG, lead the ceremony, saying “It’s very emotional being here today, setting the exposition in motion after the hard work we have done preparing it since July.”

The traditional rope cutting ceremony was followed by a dance and show, and the appearance of Paddy, the official mascot for Padel Best Expo.

Inside the Grimaldi Forum’s Padel Exposition

This year’s exposition is all about innovation and technology integration in the sport, with a spotlight on current trends. Visitors get a sneak peek into the experiential event inside the Grimaldi Forum, with the latest equipment, materials and courts all on show.

The exposition also features start-ups who are leading the new global trends in padel, as well as padel federations from various countries, with special areas for networking in the ‘Digital Space Stations’, a key concept of the exposition.

It gives regular players a chance to meet up and enjoy their shared passion, padel, while providing an opportunity for the more novice players to discover the specifics of the sport that is taking the world by storm.
