Free webinar: The making of World Football Summit

About this event

World Football Summit is where football industry leaders meet to shape the future of the game and the business. It hosts one of the largest and most influential community in football, providing a voice to the multiple stakeholders involved; allowing them to meet, discuss, promote and generate business opportunities amongst each other. 

WFS has evolved from an annual gathering in Madrid that first took place in October 2016 to a powerful platform that connects leaders and brands across a growing series of physical and digital events, delivering tailor-made solutions for those aiming to stand out in the growing, complex and highly competitive business of sport

In this webinar, its director, Jan Alessie, will explain the beginnings of World Football Summit and how they developed the idea into the company that it is today.


Jan Alessie is co-founder and director of World Football Summit, an international event that since its inception in 2016 has consolidated itself as a global platform for the football industry. Jan is also the founder of Nexus Fostering Partnership, the company responsible for the development of World Football Summit.

Senior consultant, content producer and promotion specialist with over 14 years of experience across international markets, Jan has worked in Latin America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East, identifying and building partnerships at the highest level of foreign governments and the private sector, organising high profile investment forums, negotiating and closing commercial deals, producing branded content, managing global media projects and leading commercial teams.
