Bird & Bird is delighted to invite you to attend our inaugural Sports and Media Seminar, which will be held on Wednesday 22 February 2017 from 9.15am at the home of Brinc, at PMQ in Central.

We have put together an exciting programme, focused on key recent developments in the sports & media sectors.

  • The morning will kick off with an overview of one of the fastest growing, and least understood, sports on the planet; e-sports, including an interview with a key industry player. We will also look at how broadcasters and rights holders can protect the value of their sports rights.
  • It is not possible not to talk about sports & media without mentioning mainland China. At extra time, we will give a brief overview of some of the major regulatory changes and challenges in the gambling and advertising sectors.

There will also be a chance to meet and network with fellow attendees.
