LONDON — The inaugural XBIZ Webmaster Football Match is set to debut at XBIZ London 2015, the U.K.’s top digital media event of the year.
XBIZ London delivers three days of unparalleled opportunities in Europe’s biggest consumer market and unites the U.K.’s adult entertainment industry with the international business community to deliver a range of exclusive insights and executive deal making opportunities that sets the stage for Europe’s fall show circuit.
The Webmaster Football Match will be an opening-day highlight of XBIZ London, scheduled for Sept. 15.
The match will take place approximately 10 minutes away from the event hotel. Participating webmasters and company executives will be provided custom jerseys featuring the individual’s name and company, enhancing the congenially competitive atmosphere.
Harmik Gharapetian, Epoch’s vice president of sales and marketing, is organizing the event.
“There are always happy hours and networking built around drinking, but we at Epoch thought we should do a sporting event that allows people to both get some fitness time in, as well as to network,” Gharapetian explains. “Epoch, along with XBIZ, is organizing a great football match at the birthplace of the sport in the U.K.”
Gharapetian tells XBIZ that Epoch began organizing football matches two years ago, and has seen the series grow in popularity.
“A lot of people are showing up at every skill level; to run around, break a sweat, and most importantly to meet some new people,” Gharapetian says. “We also have a lot of spectators who show up and just watch and mingle.”
Those interested in attending or playing can email Harmik@epoch.com or Skype him at Harmy10 for more information.
