(ATR) The Sportel America conference heads to Miami, Florida, USA on Mar.14 where organizers expect hundreds of business leaders in attendance.

The location of the event is crucial to its development and mission to target the U.S. and Latin America markets.

"Sportel America is essentially the convention that unites a part of the international sports marketing and media industry that is interested in doing business with North, Central and Latin America" CEO of Oceanworx - the marketing agency for all Sportel events – David Jones tells Around the Rings.

The event will be Sportel America’s 20th anniversary and kicks off in celebration with a cocktail party to welcome its delegates.

Under the theme "Meet the Elite" participants will have the opportunity to attend numerous panel discussions on the industry's latest trends and developments as well as network with key decision makers in sport.

Among the conference panels are two centered around technology. The tech panels will concentrate on advancements in social media and more in order to "help the content industry to do better business, generate more revenue and fan interaction and help provide an understanding on how certain markets and territories, particularly the Americas work," according to Jones.

"At any Sportel event you have the opportunity to meet business decision makers you don’t usually have access to."

Details on the full list of panels and program for Sportel America are soon to be announced.

The conference will conclude on Mar. 16.
