On October 28, AmCham China’s Sports Committee hosted a happy hour mixer at Bistro 108 in Beijing.
The event was joined by Sports Committee Co-Chair and MLB China’s Managing Director Tony Qi as well as VP of NBA China Daisy Zhao who were on hand to celebrate the currently ongoing MLB World Series and the start of the NBA regular season earlier this month. MLB and NBA also generously sponsored prizes for event guests.
During challenging times, sports provide a vital opportunity to connect people across cultures. The Sports Committee aims to foster an open environment for healthy discussion about China’s sports industry, focus on issues and opportunities for companies within the industry, and provide networking and community building opportunities for members through the watching and playing of various sports throughout the year.
Qi also recently met with US Ambassador to China Nicolas Burns. Ambassador Burns is a fellow baseball lover and avid fan of the Boston Red Sox.
