December 6, 2013: Sports Matters organisers have confirmed that the second edition of the popular Asian sports industry conference will be held in Singapore from September 16-18, 2014, immediately preceding the city’s Formula 1 Grand Prix for the second year running. The venue has yet to be confirmed.

 

Jasper Donat, CEO of show organiser Branded, said: “We’ve assigned a three-day window instead of two as we want to space out our forums and workshops, and try not to overlap as we had to in the first show. This way, delegates can attend everything if they wish to. As for the venue, St Regis was great last year, but we’re looking at other options as we may need more space.”

 

This year’s inaugural Sports Matters was held at The St Regis on September 18-19 and attracted 420 delegates, speakers and media.

 

Stacey Allaster, Chairman and CEO of the WTA (Women’s Tennis Association); Giles Morgan, HSBC’s Group Head of Sponsorship and Events; Andrew Georgiou, CEO of World Sport Group; and Prinz Mathew Pinakatt, Global Director Alliances and Ventures of The Coca-Cola Company, were among a high-profile cast of speakers. The show also marked the launch of the Asian Sponsorship Association.

 

Sports Matters will again be co-produced by Branded, owners of the award-winning Digital & Music Matters and Social Media Matters, and Haymarket Media, publishers of Campaign, F1 Racing and FourFourTwo magazines.
