ASPIRE4SPORT Congress & Exhibition 2014 is a two-day exclusive event and networking session, taking place in Paris on 6 and 7 October.
Since the event’s creation in 2010, it has been held in Qatar. As part of its strategic plan, ASPIRE4SPORT will take place this year in central Paris, where the program will play out alongside the Football Performance and Science Summit. The organizers, Aspire Zone and IFP Qatar Ltd, have designed the ASPIRE4SPORT exhibition as a new kind of collaborative platform, where business networking takes place in a more open environment than is usually found at these kinds of events.
Program highlights (a gala dinner, lunches and coffee breaks) will allow participants to build one-to-one relationships. The program also features scheduled meetings with Qatari organizations present at Pavillon Cambon, including the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, Qatar Football Association, Aspire Academy, Qatar Stars League and Aspetar.
To ensure the event’s success, organizers have adopted a pragmatic approach that involves requiring all visitors to state the aims of their visit. ASPIRE4SPORT will then connect different participants by providing them with a program listing scheduled meetings relevant to their goals.
Over two days of intense networking, Pavillon Cambon will play host to face-to-face talks between all participants. A unique event with ambitious goals, prestigious exhibitors and visitors, plus an exceptional location – the perfect recipe for developing fruitful partnerships!
A feature of the event will be a Global Summit related to Football Performance & Science, organized by Aspire Academy, which will bring together leading football and performance optimization specialists under one roof. In parallel, a reverse meeting exhibition will give European sport industry suppliers the opportunity to meet representatives of the most prestigious Qatari authorities and companies, paving the way for future partnerships.
During this Paris event, the sport world’s most influential figures will meet eminent members of the scientific community to discuss football in the perfect setting, the City of Light. In a bold move by Aspire Academy, this two-day summit will host no fewer than 150 participants from football federations, professional clubs, and national teams. They will present their vision of the training methods that create champions and help them set out on promising careers.
In parallel with the Global Summit, the ASPIRE4SPORT exhibition will host some 300 guests. This event will serve as a business platform that aims to create networking opportunities for European and Qatari sport industry professionals. A wide range of Qatari and Middle Eastern government organizations and companies have chosen to attend this event to meet Europe’s leading players in this field. For the latter, just meeting the highest-ranking Qatari dignitaries is a unique business opportunity.
Representatives from all sport business sectors – including construction, sport medicine, logistics, event management, communication and technology – will be present at what promises to be one of the biggest sports events in autumn 2014.
