Sessions

PANEL DISCUSSION 1: DOLLARS AND SENSE – TURNING THE PASSION FOR SPORTS INTO CONCRETE REVENUE-GENERATING OPPORTUNITIES

Sports is a unique property that unites and excites billions of fans around the world in a single moment. With rights holders, brands, and broadcasters each facing their own set of challenges, working together to develop innovative partnerships and deepen fan engagement continues to drive new revenue opportunities across the sports ecosystem. 

PANEL DISCUSSION 2: PUTTING THE ‘E’ IN SPORTS – HOW TRADITIONAL SPORTS ENTERING THE ESPORTS ARENA MAY BE THE ULTIMATE OPPORTUNITY FOR BRANDS

Traditional sports around the world continue to increase their investment in esports, hoping to tap into a quickly growing but hard-to-reach fan base. We spotlight how traditional sports are helping to shape esports into a robust and mainstream industry, as well as how brands can benefit from this exciting movement.

PANEL DISCUSSION 3: MAKING BIG BETS – WHY SPORTS IN ASIA IS THE NEW HOTBED FOR INVESTORS

As one of the fastest-growing sports markets in the world, Asia is attracting growing investment from strategic and financial players as they look to secure opportunities for long-term growth. We’ll highlight the driving factors around the increasing attention on the sports market in Asia, and why it is viewed as a lucrative opportunity for investors today.

PANEL DISCUSSION 4: THINKING GLOBAL, ACTING LOCAL – NAVIGATING THE LOCAL IN’S AND OUT’S TO ACHIEVE GLOBAL SUCCESS AND RELEVANCE

As major sports properties start to expand their footprint beyond their home turf, there is a need to invest heavily in localised content, talent and distribution. We’ll take a look at some of the lessons learned from rights holders as they’ve entered new and idiosyncratic markets, as well as the key drivers of achieving local and global relevance.
