25,000 VISITORS EXPECTED FOR THE UPCOMING EDITION
The second edition of the first major event in Italy entirely dedicated to padel will take place from 19 to 21 January 2024
The success of the debut edition of Padel Trend Expo, held in January 2023 in Milan, was truly remarkable.
Three jam-packed days, just a stone’s throw from the fashionable Citylife district, hosted a rich and varied programme of events (entertainment, shopping, tournaments and conferences) and involved more than 18,000 people, including 2,000 members of staff, across the 6 courts set up for the occasion within the beautiful pavilion at the MiCo conference centre.
The event also proved to be a fantastic showcase for the B2B sector, generating business opportunities over the 3 days estimated at more than €10 million.
The upcoming edition will have an even stronger international focus, aimed at attracting more buyers from new markets where padel is growing in popularity, such as the United States, the Middle East, China, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
In addition, there will be a nod to the combination of padel and tourism, with the goal of duplicating the long and fruitful experience of golf, a sport linked to players exploring the territory and discovering the best courses. In addition to sports clubs, many tourist structures have now added padel courts to their facilities, and they are soon to be a feature on cruise ships as well.
There will be lots of new initiatives and top-tier guests, as well as some crossovers with the world of fitness and pickleball – a phenomenon taking the United States by storm.
“We are happy to announce that the second edition of our event entirely dedicated to padel is coming soon, and after the great success of year one, we will be coming back with a host of new features and surprises. The dates for your diary are 19-21 January 2024, once again at the MiCo in Milan, for another unforgettable experience for all fans of the sport that promises to be even more exciting, richer and more entertaining” commented Marco Jannarelli, President of Next Group.
“The inaugural Padel Trend Expo was an extraordinary event, with excellent content that immediately gave our format credibility. We are convinced that, thanks to our continued commitment, this event will enjoy exponential growth over the coming years, becoming increasingly important at an international social and sporting level, and from next year also taking a look at the sports tourism sector. Padel can become an incredible opportunity to promote the region and the economy in general, providing thrilling emotions combined with entertainment. Get ready for another three unmissable days and an even more engaging experience.” affirmed Luigi Spera, Managing Director of Padel Trend Expo.
“We expect a significant return from the communication campaign that has been launched on the digital channel, with banners, social activities and newsletters – including at the international level – and the media plan integration from November to January will be even more impactful, with advertising in subways, airports, cinemas, digital displays at strategic points in cities, in addition to the internet and print media, of course.” concluded Marco Oddino, Padel Trend Expo Director of Communications.
