The DEMES Statuettes promote individuals and institutions whose activities directly contribute to the development of Polish sports. Professional cooperation between business and the sports environment allows for full development of sports, and thus the appearance of Polish athletes on the international scene. The Sports Business Awards recognize those who contribute to the development of relations between sports and business to the greatest extent. The award ceremony has a rich, 16-year-old tradition. It is not only an important moment for the people awarded, but also a key meeting for the sports business community - it brings together the best of the best.
