Beijing, 18 October 2017
At Host City Asia, international event owners meet Chinese and Asian destinations and investors.
Host City Asia highlights the issues and opportunities facing everyone in the major events business.
With three Olympic Games taking place in Asia over the next six years, Asia is fast emerging as the world’s largest event market. China is investing $850bn in sports by 2025 and is looking for global partners to develop its entertainment and cultural sectors.
Host City magazine was originally launched in 2003 at the request of the Beijing Organising Committee (BOCOG) in order to facilitate knowledge transfer on all aspects of event hosting. Host City Asia is therefore uniquely placed to bring east and west together in this market place.
Taking place in Beijing on 18th October, Host City Asia will bring together international event owners and Asian destinations, investors and suppliers for mutual insight and strategic relationship building. Host City’s highly regarded conference programme includes top-level speakers from the most influential organisations worldwide, alongside representatives from businesses with experience of all aspects of event hosting.
With a mix of panel discussions, keynote addresses and case studies on the theme of “New Audiences through Sports and Entertainment”, Host City Asia highlights the issues and opportunities facing everyone in the major events business.
Host City Asia overlaps with the 8th International Capital Conference (ICC), which has significant focus on China's growing content economy - the emerging Chinese middle class with increased spending power and an interest in Culture, Travel, Tourism, Entertainment and Sports
