Under the name of 'Purple Summit' -- an integrated marketing campaign of Nexen 
Tire -- Nexen Tire began organizing the 'Purple Summit' in an effort to foster 
and strengthen its relationships with worldwide business partners and increase 
the company's presence in the global market. This year, selected valuable 
business partners from 34 countries have attended the event.

Together with business partners from around the world, Nexen Tire has arranged 
various exciting activities. The attendees had the opportunity to build a 
foundation for strong ties among the partners through relaxing welcome dinner, 
followed by conferences highlighting Nexen Tire's thrilling global marketing 
activities and its high-end quality of products at Manchester City Football 
Academy, followed by an exciting soccer match between Manchester City F.C. and 
Liverpool F.C. at Etihad Stadium, the home stadium of Manchester City F.C. 

The match was organized as a 'special sponsor's match day event', hosted by 
Nexen Tire, who is a major sponsor of the club for a second season. It was a 
significant match held right after Nexen Tire and Manchester city F.C. 
announced the sponsorship for EPL's historical first jersey branding on sleeve, 
boasting a stronger relationship. During halftime of the match, a Nexen Tire 
Skills Challenge was held where fans were selected to shoot through a Nexen 
tire for special prizes.

worldwide business partners and customers, and to build deeper, and long-term 
business relationships," said Travis Kang, CEO of Nexen Tire. "We will remain
