ICONS Partners ProEvents In Asia

HONG KONG - UK-based Icons.com has signed an exclusive marketing partnership agreement with ProEvents Management for all Icons products & services in Asia.

Icons.com is the online home of some of the biggest name in world football such as Ryan Giggs, Ronaldo, Raul, Figo, Zidane, Patrick Kluivert, and many others players currently playing in the English Premier League, Spainish La Liga & Italian Serie A.

Both parties will cooperate on the development, marketing and management of Icons' properties and rights in Asia covering Brunei, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam on an exclusive basis. ProEvents has successfully concluded its first deal with Apple Daily, Hong Kong's leading Chinese-language newspaper, for the exclusive rights in Hong Kong to carry Icons' articles.

"We are pleased to sign the exclusive partnership with Icons," said Paul Kam, Chairman of ProEvents. "We have excellent contacts in the region and that's why we are confident that our partnership with Icons would be a long term success. A credit to Apple Daily, being the leading media group in Hong Kong, for seeing the opportunity and understanding the market's desire for quality contents."

"Icons are delighted to have joined forces with ProEvents Management," said James Freedman, Managing Director of Icons. "We have always realised there was a huge potential for marketing our products and services in Asia but it was a question of finding the right partner. ProEvents have the right expertise and contacts to best represent our interests in these territories, but more importantly they are a company that are on the same wavelength as Icons in terms of ideas and strategy. We look forward to a long future working together."
