Asia Sports Tech is proud to be a partner of globally renowned ‘TheStadiumBusiness to support their flagship Asia conference ‘The Stadium Business Asia’ in Hong Kong!

Both Founding Partners Jean-Baptiste Roy & Loron Orris took to the stage, steering two important panel discussions re-imagining Asia’s sports and entertainment destinations.

Here directly from Jean-Baptiste Roy,  as he breaks down his panel discussion with two powerful disruptors: Hyrox APAC & Talon Esports

“Competition between venues and cities to attract the best content and events is getting fierce in #asia. Where are the new revenue opportunities and how can you differentiate yourself ?

Considering the numbers of big stadiums and venues under construction in #Hongkong #Japan#thailand #china, the battle for the best content will just becoming more intense. ( However, I do believe in regional collaboration)

Always a pleasure to be invited to share my views on where I do see #growth #opportunities in #Asia

Had the pleasure to share a panel for the TheStadiumBusiness #Asia conference on “NEW REVENUE OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE NEW GENERATIONS OF FANS” with 2 fast growing content buckets #fitness Gary Wan and #esports Daniel Wong and we covered:

➡️ HYROX APAC: how does this fast growing IP in #fitness racing is bring new opportunities to engage with the 99% gym goers ?
➡️ #esport: how to tap in the growing esports event scenes in #Asia and how to make money from it ?”

And now, we have Loron Orris sharing his key takeaways on his pane with Chelsea Football Club & La Liga.

” I recently attended the @The Stadium Business conference & wanted to share some insights from it about the impact of new stadiums in Asia at the intersection of stadiums and venues, content, technology and fans.

I had the pleasure of curating a panel, and a big thank you to Ben Wiggins of Chelsea Football Club, and Marta Díaz Bejarano of LALIGA as they shared their insights about what football clubs are looking for from venues and promoters in an increasingly competitive global event marketplace with more football teams touring 🌎North America.
