20 August 2009

Investment Centre Victoria Level 46, 55 Collins Street, Melbourne

Melbourne and Victoria are recognised globally as Australia’s sporting centre of excellence and the leader in the provision of sports-related products, services and innovation. China post-Olympics still requires extensive development in their professional sports codes, management and infrastructure. China’s 4 trillion RMB (US$585 billion) economic stimulus package, announced in November 2008, includes money for cultural and sports- related infrastructure, with many local and municipal governments looking for sports related projects to secure central Chinese government funding. Join Australian Sports Hall of Fame legend and five-times British Open champion, Peter Thomson AO on the Business of Sports China Mission to identify commercial opportunities to export your Intellectual Property (IP) into this booming market – including second tier cities Tianjin and Wuhan. Dedicated business forums, site visits, workshops and private business matching are included with a strong focus on equine (horse racing), golf, sports education & training, and infrastructure. The six-day mission also includes the Peter Thomson International Invitational Pro Am at Fortune Lake golf course in Tianjin, Melbourne’s sister city.
