DB Schenker has again thrown its support behind Soccerex, being the Official Partner for Logistics Services now for the fourth time in six years.
DB Schenker will have a team available ahead of the Soccerex Global Convention, 26-30 November 2011, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to manage, coordinate and handle all shipments and deliveries into the country and getting all product safely and quickly returned home.
“We are committed to supporting Soccerex and all stakeholders. We are excited to be again working in Rio, Brazil. The Soccerex Global Convention brings the football family together, and for us it’s a great opportunity to look at all the planning requirements for 2012 through to 2014 with existing and new partners,” said Michael Korn, Deputy Chairman, Schenker Deutschland AG, and responsible for sports events with DB Schenker.
Soccerex’s Commercial Director, Ali Kramer, said that “We are delighted to be working with Schenker for a fourth year. An event on the scale of the Global Convention needs an expert logistical point of contact for the broad range of global companies attending and DB Schenker is the obvious choice.”
Over 4,000 delegates will attend the Global Convention this year, including representatives from clubs, brands, sponsors, host cities, leagues and federations, government bodies, leading infrastructure suppliers, agencies, international media and many more.
The five day event will include a comprehensive conference line up, a packed exhibition, numerous networking opportunities and a two day Football Festival, all taking place between Forte de Copacabana and Copacabana beach.
