QUOTES FROM PREVIOUS BRAND & SPORT SUMMIT SPEAKERS


hidayet türkoğlu

Turkish Basketball Federation President

Brand collaborations are of great importance for the reputation of brands in terms of the development of sports disciplines and reaching more people.

Faruk Eczacıbaşı

Eczacıbaşı Holding Vice President

As Sports Club, we serve a great purpose by supporting women's volleyball. Today, we also provide sports training to nearly 3,000 young girls. Not all of these girls will be volleyball players, but they will grow up in an athletic culture. Most importantly, they will be able to establish relationship with people at the same peer level.

andrea valade

Nielsen Sports & Entertainment Europe Business Development Director

In order for sports clubs and brands to develop a strong relationship with the consumer, it is essential for them to understand and master the consumer-desired content and develop the content strategy in this direction.

fikret orman

Beşiktaş Gymnastics Club President

Turkish sports need to globalize. We all have much to do with regards to the topic. We must increase the market value of the Super Lig.

tankut turnaoğlu

P&G Vice President and General Manager Turkey/Caucasus

As P&G, we are a good team with our brands like Orkid, Gillette, Head & Shoulders, Ariel and we complement each other with the power we get from our brands to support sports, athletes and the families we want to direct their children to sports.

Dennis Trautwein

Octagon Germany Vice President

Today there are three sines qua non for a distinctive sports sponsorship: Producing content that fans can crave to share with each other, giving each consumer the opportunity to express himself as an individual, and providing a sense of added value, giving a sense of experience

Fernando Sanz

LaLiga MENA General Manager 

Five years ago, there was no ambassador program to help promote our league in LaLiga; now we have brought the concept of League ambassadors. As we are the best competition in the world, we also have some of the best footballers in the world and through them we have made many meaningful activities and presentations. Thus, we tried to use our influence with our ambassador program in the football community to carry our influence out of football.

Didem Karagenç

Turkish National Football Team Player

With support from Ariel’s Olympic Moms Project, the Turkish National Women’s Football team has received sponsorship support for the first time in its history.
