SPORTEL events’ 2021 calendar
As the resurgence of the pandemic continues, leaving uncertainty for the coming months,

SPORTEL Teams are working on the 2021 calendar, which may be adapted depending on the

networking, a series of free to attend webinars will launch beginning in March 2021.

and dynamic innovators will discuss key industry trends emerging through the disruptive
COVID climate including: navigating media rights negotiations, ‘crossover’ partnerships
between parallel ecosystems such as esports, exciting new tech and digital evolutions and
