Since 2003 Sports and Media Rights International (SMRI) has been advising Hotels, Pubs, Nightclubs, Broadcasters, Retail premises indeed anywhere that provides music and sports programming  to their clients, and  identifies where savings can be made.

We deal directly on your behalf with IMRO, PPI, Sky, MPLC etc. and therefore very little of your time is taken up dealing with these issues after our initial review with you. To date we have saved our clients well over one million euros annually.

SMRI will carry out an analysis of the amounts you are being charged for music and sports and ensure that you are only paying the correct amounts based on your actual usage. We can also identify more cost effective alternatives.

In these very uncertain times for the hospitality industry  as a result of this pandemic, keeping costs down  is very important.  

We are associate members of the Irish Hotels Federation(IHF) and the Licensed Vintners Association (LVA)  and the Vintners Federation of Ireland recommend our services to their members.

Virtually all businesses  reopening after  Covid 19  will be due significant refunds and credits from IMRO ,PPI & Sky. SMRI can secure all of these refunds and credits for you and ensure that your charges going forward are kept to a minimum. We also do all the work so very little of your time is taken up so you can concentrate on your business.
