With the dawn of a new decade and more external pressures than ever, what issues and factors will dominate sponsorship in 2020?
For our first #ESAwebinar, join ESA and Nielsen Sports in a discussion of what the new decade holds for sponsorship.
This event will also include the launch of ESA’s much-anticipated Sponsorship Market Overview for 2020. Produced in conjunction with Nielsen Sports using the agency’s proprietary Nielsen Sports Market Intelligence, the Sponsorship Market Overview is the definitive annual report measuring the size of the European sponsorship sector.
This #ESAwebinar will provide an exclusive first look at the Sponsorship Market Overview data and provide insights, including growth sectors by consumer segment and country, which sports are on the rise and how major events are impacting sponsorship spending.
Following the data analysis and trends report, ESA and Nielsen Sports will host a Q&A with the Premier League to discuss rising trends and factors influencing the European sponsorship market.
