World Soccer Convention & Exhibition China 2018 (WSCE)
THE ASIAN GIANT PLANS TO BUILD MORE THAN 30,000 SOCCER PITCHES IN TWO YEARS
The football industry in China is undergoing a boom time. In recent years, thanks to the impulse of the central government, the Asian giant has created 20,000 soccer schools and built 50,000 new playing fields, expected to reach 85,000 by 2020.
It is in this context that the World Soccer Convention and Exhibition in China has been created, to bring together international experts from the football industry and generate business between companies. Organized by Liso Sports, the third edition of the event was held between May 23 and 25 at the Crown Plaza Beijing Sun Palace. More than 500 experts from the football industry and over 300 companies in the sector attended the event. There were talks, workshops and more than 30 stands.
During the conference, we had the opportunity to present the global capabilities of IDOM, as well as our experience in the sports sector. We were able to share our expertise in the football environment, especially our participation in the international architecture competition of Nou Camp Nou for FC Barcelona, and specifically the success story of the San Mamés Stadium.
