The Tokyo Olympics are officially kicking off, and a specially invited expert team will take you to “guess” the Chinese Olympics
The 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which arrived a year late, began. As the first time in history that the Olympics were postponed, the event will be held from July 23 to August 8, 2021. Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, sporting events around the world have been greatly impacted. Under such circumstances, athletes around the world are facing a readjustment of training rules and competition rules. The challenges are very serious
The influence of the Olympics continues to rise in the context of the epidemic
Sporting events, especially leading events such as the Olympics, have extremely high commercial value. Not only can they attract many advertising investors, but they can also boost domestic employment and boost tourism. The host country's infrastructure construction will develop rapidly. Especially in the current context where the global pandemic continues to spread, the value of leading events will become even more precious. It can be said that a top event is critical to the development of the host country/host city over the next 10 years. The 2008 Beijing Olympics is the best proof. A large amount of infrastructure was completed in a short period of time, and Beijing, the Huanjing region, and even the whole of China have developed by leaps and bounds.
According to foreign media analysis, in the US and the UK, the main audience for this year's Tokyo Olympics will be 60% of Internet users. They plan to watch the Olympic games live on TV, even on a paid model. In terms of age distribution, older users are generally not interested in paying to watch the game, but are more keen to watch the game live. Of course, under the current special conditions, TV and internet media are likely to experience a small peak in ratings. This situation will continue until the Beijing Winter Olympics and the Qatar World Cup.
The value of top IPs in the post-pandemic era will further expand. For the first time in history, the European Cup, the Olympics, and the World Cup at the end of next year, the top three sports IPs have started in just one year. All major platforms should seize this once-in-a-lifetime historical opportunity.
