The Sports Events Media Group are the industry leaders in the USA in connecting amateur sports events rights holders with sports commissions and industry suppliers.

“It’s a great honour to be shortlisted and i’m really pleased as this is well overdue recognition for the whole team of people who made the London9s possible” - Graham commented.

He continued….“Events don’t just happen. 99% of the work is done before the day itself, and without a smart, committed and passionate team of individuals who are willing to stretch the boundaries and solve problems to get the job done we wouldn’t have an event. That includes all our sponsors, the teams who travel from around the world to attend and trust us to deliver a world class event, to the volunteers and partners who make it such a fantastic experience!”

Sherri Middleton, Managing Editor for Sports Events Media, added: “We are always delighted to see Graham at our annual Industry event in the USA. Amongst 400 plus events rights holders from across the US, Graham is the only English guy and normally the sole promoter of Rugby and his 9 a side festival in London. This is such a new sport to us and it’s an education for our sports commissions to understand how they can accommodate this exciting new concept with a similar event in the States.”

The amateur sporting events industry generated $10.6 billion in economic impact across the USA in 2017 alone (NASC annual report).
