Network with Top Industry Leaders in the One of the Fastest Growing Markets for Sports Tourism

The first annual World Sport Events and Tourism Summit is bringing together sports professionals from across the industry in Yangzhou, China

China has identified sport as a national priority to stimulate the economy and the health of its citizens. Throughout the country, sports parks are being built, entrepreneurs are investing in sport-related businesses, and cities are searching for sport events to host.

To provide the industry with an understanding of the Chinese sports landscape and position sports organizations to capitalize on these emerging opportunities, the World Sport Events and Tourism Summit was created. In addition to educational panels and keynote presentations, there are a number of networking opportunities including receptions, formal dinners, and one-on-one appointment sessions with key business and government representatives seeking to work with your organization. 

If you haven't been to China before, this is a great time to get introduced. The World Sport Events and Tourism Summit is a great opportunity for visitors to network and visit this one of a kind city. 

Who will attend?

Attendees will include city sport bureaus from across China and Asia as well as sport companies, clubs, media, sponsors, and academics. The objective is to bring together leaders of international sport federations with Chinese stakeholders interested in growing sport as a business economy.
