MotoGP broadcaster Gavin Emmett is a well-known face to race fans across the globe thanks to his long association with the premier two-wheel discipline and is a respected voice when it comes to all things motorcycling. Therefore the highly experienced on screen reporter was the perfect choice when it came to selecting someone to act as host at the first ever FIM Women + Sustainability Conference that will open in Jerez at 19.00hrs (local time) today.
Emmett will be joined by FIM Chief Executive Officer - Ignacio Verneda to officially open the conference tonight before he then takes up his main role as moderator for the first of two main sessions that will also be complimented by another four topic focused sessions over the two-day event that concludes tomorrow afternoon.
Speaking ahead of tonight’s opening ceremony Emmett said. “I was delighted to be asked to be part of the inaugural FIM Women + Sustainability Conference. In my normal line of work I am very much focused on what happens out on the track, so it is great to have the chance to showcase two topics that are becoming a more and more important part of motorcycling, but are often overlooked. It is going to be interesting to share the floor with the many experts we have lined up and to learn and share ideas about how we can create better awareness and actions around Women and Sustainability within motorcycling.”
