Conference in Athens: Media and Sports

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA) The Hellenic Audiovisual Institute (IOM) held a conference on “Media and Sports: new rules of the game” on May 7,  at the Press Centre of the Secretariat General of Communication – Secretariat General of Information. The aim of the conference was to address the new digital environment evolved around sports media as well as trigger debate and raise public awareness on the topic of sports media rights. In his inaugural speech, Minister of State and government spokesman Theodoros Roussopoulos noted that as regards Greece, a country that prides itself being the homeland of sports, the economic and technical implications of the sports industry in the media should never obscure the essence and principles of sports. Noble emulation may sound old-fashioned, however, Greece is bound to make these values prevail over any possible speculation, the Minister added.
