Director General of Olympic Council of Asia to Present Keynote Speech at Asia-Pacific Sports Conference
Set to take place on September 27-28 at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel in Singapore, the Asia-Pacific Sports Conference will provide insights into the critical business challenges in hosting sports events in Asia.
The event will bring together 200 sports industry professionals from local organising committees, sports federations, governments, host cities and suppliers to sports events to learn from and network with some of the most influential leaders in the sports events industry.
Over the last decade the sports industry and major events have played an ever-increasing role in the Asia-Pacific region.
Governments in the region recognise the power of events to create a number of economic, political, social and cultural benefits and thus Asian countries have become major bidders for hosting and staging major sports events. In recent years, for example, some of the biggest sponsorship deals have come out of Asia.
The two-day Conference will provide delegates the chance to find out how major sports events affect a host city’s growth and the opportunities that they bring to a region.
The programme will address topics including:
- Bidding for Sports Events
- Stadiums and Venue Management
- How to Attract Sponsors
- What Makes a Bid Successful?
There will also be case studies on major sporting events in Asia-Pacific, and attendees will be given the chance to take part in focused workshops and listen to practiced workshop leaders on how to become a leading sports city.
High-profile leaders in the sector will take to the stage to discuss their experiences of managing and hosting major sports events. They include Mr Chan Chun Sing, Acting Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports; Captain Husain Al-Musallam, Director General and Technical Director of the Olympic Council of Asia; Teo Ping Low, Vice President of Singapore National Olympic Council and President of Singapore Rugby Union; Pang Chung, Honorary Secretary General of the Sports Federation and Olympic Committee of Hong Kong; Cornel Marculescu, Executive Director of FINA; and Toh Sen Nee, Assistant Secretary General, Asean Football Federation.
They will be joined by James Clarke, Senior Vice President of World Sport Group; David Voth, Senior Director, Sport Business at Singapore Sports Council; Eric Lynge, Director for TV and Broadcast, ASIAN Tour, amongst others.
Informa Sports Group is working closely with the Singapore Sports Council and the Olympic Council of Asia to develop the conference programme and ensure its importance, practicality and relevance to the industry.
