DB Schenker has teamed up with the organizers of Host City Asia 2019 as Gold Sponsor for the second consecutive year in a move to showcase the international freight-forwarder’s professional sports events logistics solutions, which play a significant role in supporting the robust needs of the global sports events and entertainment industry.
Asia is becoming the world's largest market for sporting and special events. Within China, investments in sports events will reportedly reach $ 850 billion by 2025. As a symbol of the country’s booming economic development and international recognition in the sports and events scene, the Host City Asia 2019 conference was held in Beijing recently.
Host City Asia 2019 is an important meeting that brings together more than 120 international event owners, organizers, hosts and other stakeholders to discuss the opportunities and challenges in China - the world's largest and fastest-growing major event market.
