" The location and timing of Esports Venue Summit (EVS) is perfect for connecting the esports community with the venue community.

" Now recognised as the fastest rising segment of the entertainment industry, esports is vying with the music sector for the live event consumer spend.

" With stadia and arenas seeing tens of thousands watching their heroes compete on the digital battlefields for millions of dollars of prize month, EVS is the perfect platform to discuss the opportunities in this sector and to understand the requirements of this evolving global industry."

" It is with great pleasure that I have the opportunity to visit Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2016, held in our very own land, Japan, the host country of the upcoming Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2020. I am looking forward to visiting the convention, letting you know about the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee’s latest developments and receiving the insightful opinions of the sports and business representatives."

" The event was fabulous. It served as a platform for industry practitioners to exchange and share innovative ideas, new projects, trends around the globe, and more importantly meet people who work in the same industry around Asia Pacific face-to-face. I would also like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the organiser; everything was well organised. The event truly exceeds my expectation and I look forward to attending Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific again!"

" We found the event incredibly well organised, with the balance between the exhibitors’ space and the speaking slots just right. Also, the organisers were incredibly helpful in connecting us with new potential clients. What did we get out the conference? Simple: new contacts and new prospects. We had a fantastic amount of interest in our services from a broad spectrum of attendees, especially architects from around the region keen to work with us on their future sports venue projects."
