(SFC) This year's SPORTELAsia was announced as a huge success by SPORTEL CEO, Laurent Puons. A total of 736 registered attendees representing 371 companies across 47 countries gathered in Asia to do business during the conference.  

"The result is overwhelming although expected. We within the SPORTEL organization had high expectations for this convention, due to the developments in Asia since 2015. At SPORTELMonaco in 2015, we already noticed an increase in Asian participation, but also the increase of business opportunities for the industry. We understood the community's wishes and have acted accordingly to cater these and to ensure that the industry will find what the business opportunities. We are honored by the positive feedback and are thankful for the trust and loyalty of the SPORTEL community," expressed Puons.  

Compared to the last Asian convention, there was an increase in new companies by 22% at SPORTELAsia 2016. Also, around 40% of attendees were "c-level" decision makers that were ready to do business.

Puons added, "The industry is changing and so has SPORTEL. It is not a sole rights market anymore; it is evolving to an all-around sports marketing and media convention that provides a wide variety of business opportunities and connections for the industry."

In addition, SPORTEL wanted to extend thanks to the collaborators Sport Singapore, TVSM, SVG for their support and input on organizing a relevant conference. A big "Thank You" goes to FEI for their support of the Meet n' Greet Party; La Liga, who powered the SPORTELApp; One Championship that sponsored the business lounge; and Arqiva for sponsoring the delegate's room. SPORTEL is honored by their trust and desire to communicate their brands alongside SPORTEL.

Now SPORTEL is looking forward to welcoming delegates at SPORTELMonaco 2016 that will take place from October 24-27.
