Details of the 2009 motorsport business forums have been announced.
There will be three events this year, the traditional event in Monaco in December, the Middle East event in the days before the Abu Dhabi GP in October and a US event in Orlando in December.
The forums have evolved over the past five years into the leading event for discussion and debate on the major issues around the world of motorsport business. The wide ranging programme covers every area of commercial activity in the sport from sponsorship acquisition and exploitation to championship management.
I have been asked to host the Monaco and Abu Dhabi events and I’m proud to do so. Sponsorship finder par excellence Zak Brown is hosting the US event.
The line ups are being put together, but championship promoters, F1 teams, global sponsors and circuits have confirmed participation.
There are some exciting speakers from the world of F1 business including team members like Brawn CEO Nick Fry and Bobby Rahal as well as representatives of major sponsors like Hilton, UPS and LG.
