Paul Dermody, CEO, HRI Racecourses & Marketing and Jo Harrington, head of marketing partnerships, Live Nation Ireland, will share perspectives on sport and the arts.
Pasi Lankinen, previous partnerships strategist for FC Barcelona and current advisor to Manchester City, will talk about the changing landscape and future of the sponsor/rights holder relationship, how they anticipate adapting to meet the altered expectations of fans to enhance engagement and what the future of live events might look like post-Covid.
The San Francisco 49ers chief revenue officer Brent Schoeb will share insights from the US on the impact of last year’s restrictions on revenue. The session will look at partnerships contracts, diversification of revenue streams, the cryptocurrency trend in sport circles and how the 49ers have upped their game in using data to best effect at the club’s Levi’s Stadium.
An all-star panel of leading talent in Ireland including Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic gold medal winners Kellie Harrington and Ellen Keane will also discuss how their achievements and star power can make a real difference to their communities and the Irish marketing industry.
