EUROVISION Delivers Convention Highlights


SportAccord Convention 2014 in Belek/Antalya, Turkey, received wide television exposure thanks to its partnership with EUROVISION, the Convention’s Official Content Distribution Partner.

During the event, which took place 6-11 April, daily highlights produced by ISB were made available through EUROVISION’s WorldFeed service and WorldLink on-demand platform.

“We have been partners of SportAccord Convention for many years, but now we are taking our support of the event into a new phase by making news and related content from the Convention accessible to broadcasters around the world,” said Stefan Kuerten, Director of Sports & Business Department at EBU/EUROVISION.

European broadcasters in Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Russia, Slovenia, Spain and Switzerland and Eurosport were among those accessing SportAccord Convention 2014 video, as did channels in Iran, Kuwait, Qatar and Mexico – and numerous news agencies including Reuters and SNTV.

On average, nine companies per day previewed content for broadcast and online use, with a high of 16 on the opening day of the Convention.
