Andy Rice, chief operating officer of Major Events International, said, “It is immensely gratifying to be able to answer the demands from our rights holders, cities and partners to make the 2023 Hosts and Federations Summit a multi-day event and to include a significantly expanded programme. It will, of course, contain our schedule of pre-planned, one-to-one meetings designed to place key parties in direct communication with one another.”

“On the opening day, there will be exclusive morning briefings for Enhanced Delegates to listen to opportunities from Rights Holders on their upcoming events and championships. The expanded programme will allow delegates to participate in the hot topics of the day, including Sports Infrastructure Planning, Destinations with Ambition – Vision and Strategy, The Role of Sustainability in Major Events and Web3: What does it mean for rights holders? These are just a few sessions available on the first full day of content, added “Rice.
