“Building the Future of Basketball Together”
The first-ever FIBA World Basketball Summit will take place in China, and bring together a wide range of high-ranking personalities in world basketball, from top level officials and management personnel in federations, clubs and leagues to business leaders and heads of corporations across areas such as media and technology, brands and corporate social responsibility.
Why is FIBA holding the World Basketball Summit?
As the international governing body for basketball our mission is to develop and promote the game worldwide as well as support our National Member Federations and the many other stakeholders in the sport to maximise their potential. The vision of the conference, ‘Building the Future of Basketball Together,’ sums up not only its objectives but the spirit in which it is being held. It is about sharing and collaboration across the global basketball family.
And why China?
There is a tremendous appetite for basketball in China, where it outranks soccer in popularity. The China basketball market is experiencing strong growth and the outlook is positive.
