Wyscout Meetup 2021: Tackling Transfer Negotiations in a One-Day Virtual Networking Event
After almost a whole year of travel restrictions and remote working, virtual meetings have become a regular part of the scouting and transfer process.
That’s why, back in November, we launched our first-ever virtual edition of Wyscout Forum, allowing participation from the comfort of homes, training grounds and offices worldwide.
Over 280 participants from 39 countries were able to build networks, schedule meetings, and start negotiations – all taking place online.
And that’s why, on January 20, we doubled our commitment to provide high-value networking opportunities to clubs, intermediaries and agencies worldwide by hosting our first-ever Wyscout MeetUp – a one-day virtual networking event for key decision-makers to come together in the final weeks of the January transfer window.
Wyscout MeetUp has been a way for key decision-makers in the football industry to meet for 12 hours at a critical time in the January transfer window, when clubs need to take smart, valuable decisions with a very tight schedule.
Wyscout MeetUp provided club representatives, agents and intermediaries to meet and discuss transfers in a virtual environment, making transfer negotiations more efficient and effective.
On January 20, in just a twelve-hour time span, 183 attendees from 33 countries around the world held an impressive 680+ meetings to kick-off, continue or close transfer negotiations for their clubs or clients.
Wyscout MeetUp definitely proved to be a successful experiment, as the necessity for football professionals to meet in a virtual and organized environment is becoming inevitable rather than optional. Here’s what happened, in numbers:
- 183 active participants
- 89 individual clubs from around the world
- 33 countries from Argentina to Japan
- 680+ meetings scheduled over 12 hours
- 28 Meetings each organised by professional clubs Brentford FC & FC Midtjylland
- 780+ messages were sent on the online platform between participants
