‘Rebirth of Sport’ Heads Sports Matters Agenda

Singapore: The ‘Rebirth of Sport’ and the gradual reopening of the sports industry in Asia will be the over-riding theme running through next week’s Sports Matters conference.

To be staged at the Suntec Convention Centre Hall in Singapore, Sports Matters is part of the three-day All That Matters line-up (November 22-24) that also brings together the music and marketing industries.

Sports Matters will tee-off the week on November 22 to be followed by Music Matters (November 23) and Marketing Matters (November 24).

“All That Matters connects the people who are driving Asia’s music, sports and digital entertainment sectors,” said Jasper Donat, Chief Executive Officer at Branded, who host and produce All That Matters.

“Much of the Asian sports industry has struggled over the past two years but positives have emerged, including the rise of women’s sports, urban sports at the Olympics, sports tech and more,” he added.

The opening session will look at the ‘Rebirth of Sport’ and will focus on the gradual reopening of the sports industry in Asia and sets the scene for the day to come.

Among the panelists is Malcolm Thorpe, who’s been working in sports for almost 30 years and has extensive experience running sports projects in senior agency roles in Asia.

As Managing Director, Southeast Asia, SPORTFIVE – a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation – Thorpe heads the company’s business in Southeast Asia, Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea.

Other notable speakers include Lim Teck Yin, Chief Executive Officer at Sport Singapore, Lionel Yeo, CEO at Singapore Sports Hub, and Maurizio Barbieri, Head of Sports Gaming Partnerships for Twitter in Southeast Asia.
