Latest trends and developments in sports media rights to be discussed at LawInSport Conference
published on 31 August 2017
Without a doubt, sports media rights are critical to the growth and development of sport globally. Over the last year we have seen further increases in the value of many deals for major sports media rights. We have also seen new entrants into the market in the form of social media platforms dipping their toes into the sports media rights arena.
At the LawInSport Annual Conference a distinguished panel of experts for the legal and commercial sectors will be discussing what this means in terms of the latest trends & developments in negotiating, buying and selling sports media rights both now and in the future.
- Chaired by Alex Haffner, Partner at Fladgate LLP, the panel is comprised of:
- Matt Phillips, Chief Counsel, Media at BT
- Steven Bainbridge, Head of Sports Law & Events Management at Al Tamimi & Company
- Andrew Ryan, Head of Legal, Media at the IOC (TBC)
