London, UK - 07 February, 2024: World Table Tennis (WTT) has renewed and expanded its partnership with global sports video production and distribution agency, Story10, to promote the sport in key territories and engage new audiences worldwide.
Starting with the ITTF World Team Table Tennis Championships Finals Busan 2024, presented by BNK Busan Bank (16-25 February 2024), the partnership will see Story10 amplify game highlights from the 2024 Championships and WTT’s marquee Grand Smash, Finals and Champions events, across its network of 8,500 digital and social channels and 700 broadcast partners.
For the first time, the expanded partnership will see Story10 and WTT develop a pilot project to create authentic influencer collaborations that increase the sport’s exposure and engagement with new audiences across social platforms, leveraging Story10’s network of 7.5 million influencers worldwide.
James Dobbs, Managing Director of Story10’s parent company SNTV, said, “We’re thrilled to renew our partnership with World Table Tennis into a second year, continuing to drive awareness and helping to grow their global fanbase through our unique distribution network whilst providing all the action to our international audiences.”
