We have big ambitions for this new Asia meeting – so we started with the BIG names. We are delighted to announce three key partners for TheTicketingBusiness ASIA 2023 in Hong Kong on 19-20 October.
Taking the lead is the most-anticipated sports and entertainment destination in Asia – Kai Tak Sports Park – as our future host event partner.
The founding event partnership further extends to two of the key partners behind this landmark development: ASM Global – the world’s leading venue operator – and Populous, the world’s leading venue design practice.
Key executives from all three organisations will be in attendance at TheTicketingBusiness ASIA (#TAS23) this October, with its experts joining key panels and breakout discussions. Furthermore, these partners will have access and visibility across the event lifecycle – through related marketing and the new, regional TheTicketingBusiness ASIA e-newsletter.
Kai Tak Sports Park will be a showcase for the very latest in fan experience, venue technology and operations.
“Bringing people together is what everyone in the sports and entertainment sector does for a living. And as our sector restarts and reinvents itself after the losses, shutdowns and closures of the pandemic, sourcing best practice from the best in our business makes so much sense,” says Ian Nuttall, Founder, TheTicketingBusiness. “We are honoured to partner with not only the most exciting new venue in the region but to also have alongside the world’s leading venue operating group and the sector’s global leader in venue design and architecture.
He adds: “The key to our sector’s re-imagining is the sharing of ideas and inspiration to create safer, more creative and ever more engaging guest experiences. We are very happy to be sharing the lessons from these giants of the sector as we build TheStadiumBusiness ASIA into THE regional meeting for our sector.”
“Never has it been more important for the industry to come together to share ideas, innovate and redefine industry best practice,” stated John Sharkey, Project Director from Kai Tak Sports Park. “Kai Tak Sports Park will be a showcase for the very latest in fan experience, venue design and operations. We look forward to supporting this event to gather the region’s sports and entertainment leaders in Hong Kong as this mega-project moves from construction to operation.”
This initial agreement forms part of a strategic plan to develop the meeting over the years in Hong Kong, growing as the key elements of Kai Tak Sports Park open their doors.
Join us in Hong Kong on 17-18 October as we explore the future of design, operations and technology for Asia’s sports and entertainment venues – only at TheTicketingBusiness ASIA 2023 (#TAS23).
