The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) has revealed details of the World Basketball Summit, an event it says will be first of its kind for the sports industry.

The inaugural event will take place in Xi’an on 3rd and 4th October, with the capital of China’s Shaanxi Province having committed to host the first three editions up to 2020.

The FIBA World Basketball Summit will bring together a wide range of high-ranking personalities in basketball - from top level officials and management personnel in federations, clubs and leagues, to business leaders and heads of corporations across areas such as media and technology, brands and corporate social responsibility.

In a statement announcing the event, FIBA advised “this is the first individual sport summit of its kind and marks a significant milestone in the history of basketball's development, reflecting both the global popularity and maturity of the game.

“The Fiba World Basketball Summit is a ‘can't miss’ annual get-together for all who play key roles in basketball's global ecosystem. It is a unique opportunity for these personalities to share their experience and knowledge, while also taking advantage of the sport's biggest platform to promote their competitions, activities and interests.”

World swimming governing body launched the World Aquatics Convention in 2010, with the annual event going on to be a successful annual gathering of global swimming stakeholders.
