Sports and Sports Media in the Digital Age: Annual Update

16 April 2018

12.30 - 14.00

INFINITI LAB, 1/F, Hopewell Centre, 183 Queen’s Road East, Wan Chai Hong Kong

Bird & Bird is delighted to invite you to attend our second annual Sports and Sports Media Seminar, which will be held on 16 April 2018 from 12:30pm - 2:00pm at INFINITI LAB on Queen's Road East in Wanchai.

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

The afternoon will kick off with an overview of recent trends and developments in the last 12 months and will look forward to discuss the hot topics of 2018.

Our team will then look at some of the recent trends in e-sports, one of our major growth areas in 2017/18.

We will also have a session on "Australian Rugby: Learnings from life at the coalface" from former Rugby Australia General Counsel and newest member of the Bird & Bird Sports and Media team, Rich Hawkins.

It is not possible not to talk about Sports & Sports Media without mentioning mainland China and we will also look at the recent trends for inbound and outbound sports investment in China.

There will also be a chance to meet and network with fellow attendees, with a buffet lunch being provided before and during the seminar.

Places are limited, so please RSVP as soon as possible and we look forward to seeing you there!


For Hong Kong qualified lawyers who are attending, we have applied to the Law Society for CPD accreditation.

Would you like to attend?
