The Australia-China Sports Summit is a one day event gathering Australia and China's finest sports experts in the heart of Shanghai.
Whether you want to hear from industry veterans from the AFL and the NBL who have delivered major sporting events in China, understand how technology and data are helping leagues develop new revenue streams and streamline operations, learn how foreign sports clubs can engage with Chinese fans through social media or find out how international sports attract Chinese investment, there's something for you.
China is Australia’s most important trading partner and the most dynamic market to do business in the world. It is also the most exciting place for sport right now as it grapples with a rising middle class and a push to a consumption lead economy. The focus on sport is being led top down from the Chinese Government and has been earmarked as the nation's next big industry for the decades ahead.
The Chinese sports industry has the opportunity to grow new links with a country that punches above its weight when it comes to sport, both on and off the field. Australia has some of the best players, teams, codes, intellectual property, and expertise that has been built up from a culture in love with sport.
The 2019 Australia-China Sports Summit will bring together industry professionals and experts from China and Australia to talk about the future of sport in both countries and the opportunities to collaborate and learn.
