There are key pillars of the global sports industry and Sports Matters will address each of these with an Asia-centric programme and speaker profile. 1. Content & Broadcast/Media 2. Sponsorship - Generating new revenues with new media 3. Social & Digital Futures - Maximising revenue through social and digital platforms 4. Federations & Associations - rights, partnerships and regional events 5. Fan engagement 6. Venues - Sport as entertainment 7. Technology - Enhancing event production AND sports performance 8. Education - Training sports people and training the trainers In it's inaugural year the programme will attempt to make the industry sit up and listen. Like Digital and Music Matters, there will be ideas exchange and networking opportunities, an element of controversy and above all, great entertainment. Over the course of our 3 year programming strategy, we plan to launch a new industry association made up of Asian sports industry personnel which will act as the platform from which to provide internships, launch scholarships and nurture excellence within the region.
