Digital Seminar for Athletes 11 October 2022

Please use the menu tabs below to navigate through the different sections of the seminars, from the timetable to all the relevant documents, as well as the ultimate tab where you can watch the seminars on replay.

This seminar opens to the equestrian core community including the international athletes, grooms and their team members. The seminar will be centred on providing the best practices in the management and activation of the digital channels to support athletes and equestrian professionals in boosting their fanbase and engagement, identifying areas for further collaboration using the latest digital tools, and building the personal brand to attract more fans and find business sponsors.

The virtual seminar will take place on Tuesday 11 October, 2022. It will last 2 hours including a short break. Two identical sessions will be organised to accommodate the time zones - one at 8:00 CEST (6:00 UTC) and the other at 17:00 CEST (15:00 UTC). Additional seminars can be scheduled to focus on specific topics. Our speakers include FEI digital experts, athletes with a popular fanbase on social media, consultants from personal branding companies, and experts knowledgeable in social platforms. A handbook that details all these best practices will be distributed after the seminar.
