SVGE’s Football Production Summit: Brian Clark, François-Charles Bideaux, Tom McDonnell confirmed as panellists

The line-up of leading industry technical directors and decision-makers set to grace this year’s Football Production Summit has expanded once again. Produced by SVG Europe, Football Production Summit 2014 will take place at Stade de France on 18 March.

NEP Visions’ commercial and technical projects director Brian Clark is the latest addition to a panel that will consider ‘what’s next in football production?’ and which already includes Ignacio Arrola Albarracin (Mediapro/La Liga), Gary Hughes (BSkyB) and Jan de Vries (Eredivisie Live).

Meanwhile, François-Charles Bideaux, CANAL+ sports production director, will offer his views on evolving techniques for covering football alongside Grant Best (BT Sport), Riccardo Botta (Sky Italia) and Alessandro Reitano (Sky Deutschland).

Tom McDonnell is CEO of Monterosa, the second-screen specialist whose profile has soared over the last few years. Logically enough, he will give his perspective on ‘football and making the most of second screen and social media’ alongside David Collet (Opta), Christopher Rapaport (Netco Sports) and Stefan-Eric Wildeman (FIFA TV).
