LeSports Connects Wrap Report

  • I'm sleeping so much better! Hi David, just a quick message to say thank you so much for this. I have been using a CPAP machine for 3 years and I absolutely hate it. It's so uncomfortable and I sleep worse with it on than I do without it. I'm now sleeping much better thanks to your program. And my wife is so much happier too! ■■■ http://ishbv.com/snoringno/pdf

LeSports Connects Wrap Report

  1. 1. WRAP REPORT
  2. 2. 2016 was singularly the most important year ever for the sports industry and it was all because of China. LeSports Connects was China’s first large scale international sports conference. Its inaugural edition attracted over 500 delegates from China, Asia Pacific and beyond to Mission Hills China for a 3 day event with world class conference content, and packed full of networking events including a golf day and bowling evening! Over 2 days of conference content, speakers from both China and the world sporting community took part in panel discussions and keynotes on topics including: opportunities for international brands in China, sponsorship, media rights and content, football, investment, and the sustainable development of the China sports industry. The LeSports Connects conference provided a unique opportunity to be updated on the lightning fast growth of the sports marketing industry in China. The panels were relevant and stimulating and it was great to be able to connect with sports marketing executives from around the world who share our China focus. - Jim Small, VP, APAC “ ” ABOUT OUR MISSION: To connect the global sports industry with China’s business power players
