asiaIHBB has organized tournaments in Asia since 2012, and inaugurated its Asian Championships in Hong Kong in June 2014. As of the summer of 2015, we have held tournaments in China, Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and the United Arab Emirates. In 2015, we also inaugurated the Geography Bee of Asia at our Asian Championships and held the Sports and Entertainment History Bee of Asia as a side event at the championships as well. In 2015-16, we will be introducing tournaments in the Philippines, and potentially other countries as well. In the future, we anticipate expanding further throughout Asia as time permits.
