SpoBiS - Düsseldorf hosts Europe's largest sport business convention

Düsseldorf, (lifePR) - The annual Sports Business Summit (SpoBiS), Europe's largest sport business convention, will be held in Düsseldorf for the second time on February 13-14, 2012. Approximately 1,500 participants and 150 top German and international experts in sports, politics and business are expected to gather at the CCD Congress Center Düsseldorf in the capital of North Rhine-Westfalia for the twoday convention. The convention will be hosted by the European Sponsoring Börse (ESB) and the trade magazine SPONSORs.

Every year, a steady stream of the who's-who of the sporting world takes the SpoBiS stage. This year's allstar lineup includes the managing director of Borussia Dortmund, Thomas Treß, the chairman of the supervisory board of FC Schalke 04, Clemens Tönnies, and the founder of SAP, Dietmar Hopp. The key points on the agenda at this 16th Sports Business Summit are sustainability in sports, how sport reporting has changed in the digital era, and of course the upcoming Olympic Games in London. The winner of the "Sports Marketing Award" will also be announced during the SpoBiS convention again this year.

Before SpoBiS was held in Düsseldorf for the first time in 2011, it used to be held in Munich. In cooperation with sportAgentur Düsseldorf, Düsseldorf-Congress Veranstaltungs-GmbH bid to host the trade convention and won out against competitors in Berlin, Leipzig and Munich. The convention will be held in Düsseldorf for the next four years.

The Sports Business Summit is an excellent opportunity for the city of Düsseldorf to actively promote its image as a sports city internationally. In addition to the 1,500 participants, many media partners from across Europe will also be represented at the trade convention. "During SpoBiS, we will also have the chance to further deepen the contacts we already have with sports and show event organizers as well as to make new contacts," explains Hilmar Guckert, management spokesperson of DüsseldorfCongress. "The congress is an excellent opportunity to present our arenas first hand to a broad base of industry players and interested event organizers."

The forum "Business Location Attractiveness Factor Sport" on the first day of the convention will also draw special attention to the capital city of Düsseldorf. The issue of business location attractiveness will be presented and discussed using Düsseldorf as an example, looking at sport's economic and image-building potential for municipalities.
