Zhiwen Wang, Chairman of the China-US Chamber of Commerce, said "We are seeing a wave of cross border investments between China and the US which will reach a record $30 billion this year, a 50% increase from 2015. China has the most sports fans in the world, and the sports market is now one of the hottest investment sectors. We meet hundreds of companies a year in our role in helping Chinese partners identify innovative companies and technologies to partner with. So, the Chamber is honored to recognize SKYY Digital Media Group with our INNOVATION Award as they have created a truly transformational media technology that delivers to users content personalized to their interests, when and how they want it, across the world. The INNOVATION Award has five main criteria including innovative and sustainable technology, strong senior management, global impact, sound business model and operational excellence. We believe SKYY Digital Media Group is an excellent example of a company with these qualities.
Mr. Wang continued, "Sports is a common language across cultures so we are particularly excited about SKYY Digital Media Group's unique technology bringing people together around their shared passion for sports under their SPORTTU brand. The Olympics and World Cup are two sporting events that bring the world together every few years, and SPORTTU is the first and only platform that brings sports fans across the globe together on an ongoing basis. China is increasingly hosting many global sporting events and is hosting the 2022 Olympics, so the demand for global sports content will only continue to increase in China."

We are pleased that our company and our media technology is being recognized by the Chamber which advocates and promotes cutting edge businesses and innovation.
