Rio de Janeiro is considered by many to be a top priority due to the fact that it has a lot to offer. With this sequel, we will continue to point out what we consider to be important events that will be organized in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil this November 2010.
A world trade show that will open its doors on November 20th is the Soccerex Global Convention and will last four days. The event features important meetings and active debates. The organizers expect more than four thousand people to attend to this event, coming from more than a hundred countries, for a gathering of 300 exhibitors. This year, the “League Summit” will be held for the first time, which is a meeting of the organizers of the main world championships, like English’s Premier League, Italy’s Serie A, Spain’s Primera Division, German’s Bundesliga, France’s Ligue 1 and of course, the Brazilian Championship.
A tribute to the 40th anniversary of being the world champion three times in a row will be the highlight of the event. Soccer legends, Brazilian players, culture and music people will participate in a soccer beach tournament for this occasion. The Soccerex Festival shall take place in an arena set up right on the golden sands of the famous Copacabana beach, and it shall have a team of former players such as Holand’s Rud Gullit, England’s Bryan Robson, Argentine’s Adiles and Brazil’s Carlos Alberto Torres and Bebeto.
On November 20th is the Zumbi dos Palmares (Black Consciousness Day).
