MUMBAI: 658 participants, representing 324 companies from 43 countries worldwide, attended the recently concluded sports television market Sportel Asia 2006.

Sportel executive VP David Tomatis says, "Shanghai and in particular the Pudong Shangri-La Hotel proved to be a wonderful venue for our clients.

"We also wish to extend our special thanks to Shanghai Media Group president LI Ruigang, and his staff for their invaluable partnership and Rai trade president Roberto DI Russo and his team, for sponsoring our opening cocktail."
