Pan-European broadcaster Eurosport has revealed that it will produce live coverage of the 2007 Motor Sport Business Forum, to be held in Monaco next month.

The multimedia company made its announcement following confirmation that some of the biggest names in motorsport will be participating at the 5-6 December event, including FIA president Max Mosley, BMW motorsport boss Mario Theissen, Formula One's newest team owner Vijay Mallya and Honda Racing CEO Nick Fry.

Eurosport has agreed to be the 'platinum broadcast partner' for the forum, and will allow motorsport professionals worldwide to follow the conference via a live webcast. A full camera crew will be on the ground to film the event, bringing the latest news and views, plus on-the-spot interviews with the motorsport industry's most influential people, to the internet.

Live coverage of all conference presentations will be provided, as well as the keynote speeches and panel debates, while those who subscribe to the live service will also be able to download video content for selected events once the forum has closed.

"The Motor Sport Business Forum is a natural fit for us," insisted the broadcaster's vice-chairman, Jacques Raynaud, "It is the leading event for the motorsport industry and Eurosport has a deep involvement in televising and promoting major motor racing championships. We are delighted to bring our cutting-edge technology and webcasting know-how to this important industry event."

Raynaud will also play a part in the forum itself, talking about the World Touring Car Championship as part of a panel discussion entitled The Business of World Motor Sport on the morning of 6 December.
