Best Networking

The SPOBIS is more than just a series of presentations and discussions rounds with networking in the evening. Together with our partners, we diversify and develop different formats: for networking, conceiving ideas and also having fun together.

Captain's Dinner

On the organiser’s invitation!

On the eve of the official start to the SPOBIS, our managing directors will invite selected guests to the Captain’s Dinner. This very special Side-Event enables an exchange with other high-profile industry representatives.

Participation is by personal invitation only.


We’ll head to Tim Mälzer’s Restaurant Hausmann’s in Düsseldorf’s old town for our SPOBIS Pre-Opener. This warm-up event will allow partners, exhibitors, speakers and other guests to get in the mood for the two-day SPOBIS.

Participation is possible through a limited VIP-Ticket or by personal invitation only.

Elevator Pitch

With the Elevator Pitch, the SPOBIS 2019 gains a valuable new networking format. Upon prior registration, rights holders, agencies, start-ups and service providers can present their innovative concepts and ideas directly to the industry’s marketing and sponsorship decision-makers during a pitch lasting a maximum of 10 minutes.

*NEW* Career Day

In order to further reinforce the SPOBIS platform and networking concept, we will host a SPOBIS Career Day as one of our many side events.

Interested participants will have the opportunity to meet with and introduce themselves to top employers from the sports business industry.

On the second SPOBIS day, Thursday 31 January 2019, a whole host of personnel decision-makers from companies and institutions that are well-known within the industry will be available for confidential discussions.


On your marks, get set – network! Use the networking rounds for surprise encounters and make up to 15 new contacts in just 30 minutes. Places are limited: first come, first served!


The masterclasses take place in smaller rooms with a capacity of max. 150 people. These events with a runtime of 60 minutes are organised individually and independently by the SPOBIS partners.

Alongside the official programme, participants will receive additional input on countless compelling topics. Allowing them to immerse themselves in selected specialist areas in exclusive surrounds on both event days.

The partners are free to decide the masterclass format. From champagne receptions to customer meets and classic presentations – the options are diverse.

Open Presentations

Got something interesting to share, but won’t be appearing on stage? Want to present an idea or product?

Then our Open Presentation format is just the thing for you. These 25-minute slots allow interested parties to hold a short presentation during the SPOBIS.
