Among all the companies that visited the Youthstream stand at Sportel there was a big enthusiasm for the 2013 FIM Snowcross World Championship, which will consist on three events, one in Finland and two in Russia. Besides, all the broadcasters found a lot of potential in the 2013 overseas Grand Prix in the new territories of Qatar and Thailand, and also in the 2014 Indian MXGP in the well-known territory of GOA.
Most of the partners recognized the significant step forward that Youthstream has made towards the investment in new technologies to improve the product and to reach every corner in the world. In fact, a clear example used by many broadcasters was the TV production of the 2012 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations, which was produced in HD using the latest technology.
During the 2012 Sportel edition Youthstream not only did present their product to new broadcasters, but also they meet up with the 2012 broadcasters who have a long and strong agreement with Youthstream like Sport TV in Portugal, Supersport in South Africa, Bandsport in Brazil, Motors TV in Europe, Sportitalia in Italy, or Fox Sports and Speed in Australia. Besides, some other broadcasters used the opportunity at Sportel to renew their agreements with Youthstream such as ESPN Star in Asia or MTV 3 in Finland, that extended their contracts for three more years, or TAJ TV in India, who will broadcast the series for two more years.
