(Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and COO: Masataka Okuda) has become a sponsor of “Sport Innovation Summit Tokyo 2018 (SiS Tokyo),” an event that provides an “opportunity” for the world’s top sports organizations and corporations to discuss the hottest topics.

In 2014, SiS started in Mexico as a conference focusing on innovations in sports and its surrounding industries. Even in the world of sports, innovation cannot be executed by a single organization, and an ecosystem needs to be founded in collaboration with various industries and businesses. SiS introduces trends that are occurring around the globe and provides an “opportunity” to discuss such trends.

In 2017, SiS also started its trail in Paris. Leading professionals of sports and businesses gathered and engaged in heated discussions. And now, marking its third hosting country, SiS will be held in Tokyo, Japan this November. This insightful 2-day event will surely play an important part for Japan in maximizing its role as the hosting country for the coming 2020 Olympics.

transcosmos has become an SiS Tokyo sponsor. Keiji Ito, president of playground Co., Ltd., a transcosmos group company, will take the stage and give presentation on its e-ticketing system “Quick Ticket” and connected stadium service “MOALA” at the sponsor session.
