Vbase - Portraits  24 February 2014
Facilities Manager, Hong Kong Rugby Union
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 in 2016!
President and CEO, Space Media Japan
It is very positive for our organisation to be involved in the Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific event as the Event Partner. As the world knows, Japan will soon have some massive sports events to organise – 2019 Rugby World Cup as well as Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. In addition to this the Japanese Government has placed great emphasis on the innovation of the National Sports Industry including specific focus on the role of stadium and arena management. It is my opinion that this is the best timing to hold the event in Japan and we, Space Media Japan (part of the Congress Corporation), are very excited to be a part of this new industry.
Chief Executive Officer, Tokyo 2020
It is with great pleasure that I have the opportunity to visit this year’s Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific, 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 know about the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee’s latest developments and receiving the insightful opinions of the sports and business representatives.
Mayor of Yokohama
I am pleased to welcome Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2016 to Yokohama. Our city is home to YOKOHAMA ARENA, Nissan Stadium, YOKOHAMA STADIUM and other venues capable of handling large-scale sporting events. Making use of these facilities, we plan to host events during the 2019 Rugby World Cup as well as the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. Yokohama is growing increasingly famous as a host city for such large-scale sporting events, and we are pleased and honored to be hosting Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2016. YOKOHAMA ARENA, our venue for this event, has a capacity of approximately 17,000 and boasts a moveable seating system, enabling its use for a wide range of sports competitions and events. Numerous hosts have praised this venue for its well-equipped facilities, and it is utilized for events an impressive 300 days out of the year. Furthermore, Yokohama has a high-speed Shinkansen (bullet train) station, providing excellent transport connections to other cities within Japan, and the city’s beautiful harbor-front district scenery, world cuisine and other attractions offer plenty to do after event sessions. By hosting Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2016, we hope to provide opportunities for its many participants to hold fruitful discussions and lively exchanges.
General Manager, Sydney Cricket & Sports Ground Trust
Just a short note to thank you for inviting me to be part of Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2015. I was impressed with the operation of the event and enjoyed the experience immensely. Best of luck with the 2016 version.
