SVG Europe is very pleased to announce that new EVS chief executive officer Serge Van Herck will introduce the Football Summit in Berlin on 31 March. He took over as EVS CEO on 1 January 2020, following completion of a transition period marking the departure of previous EVS boss Pierre De Muelenaere on 31 December 2019.

Van Herck is the former CEO and president of Newtec, a Belgian based international company specialised in equipment and technologies for satellite communications. He has more than 25 years of management and board experience with companies such as Proximus, Accenture and Eutelsat.

The Football Summit is a one-day conference featuring panels, case studies, interviews and presentations covering the production and broadcasting of the beautiful game.

Taking place at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on Tuesday 31 March, the 2020 event will take a close look at a range of subjects from augmented reality, video piracy and asset management through to the growth of the Women’s game, eSports and football production on a budget.

As with all SVG Europe events, it will also feature ample networking opportunities, a technology showcase and an optional stadium tour.

The full programme and agenda will be announced soon.
