Exhibitors at #SAC2017 Aarhus, Denmark have golden opportunity to take centre stage in European Capital of Culture
LAUSANNE, Switzerland – SportAccord Convention is delighted to be hosting its 15th edition of the Convention in Aarhus from 2 to 7 April 2017. Held in a different city each year, this premier event is a unique opportunity for key decision-makers from sport and industry to meet and network on a global scale, in one location, within an exclusive environment. During this year’s 3-day exhibition, exhibitors will also have a golden opportunity to take centre stage, with Aarhus named the European Capital of Culture for 2017.
The accolade has been awarded to a city that also lives and breathes sport. Aarhus receives strong support from the Danish government as well as the municipalities in the region, all of whom are keen to ensure Denmark remains firmly on the map as one of the ‘go-to destinations’ for international sport events.
As a result, SportAccord Convention exhibitors can expect to benefit from the limelight as all eyes turn to Aarhus and the Convention in April 2017. With this in mind, the SportAccord Convention team have put together Exhibitor packages offering options to suit all budgets. Cities, International Federations, Organising Committees and businesses across all industry sectors, have a chance to network and showcase their intentions on a global platform where 93% of delegates are in a position to take action.
Over one thousand organisations attend the SportAccord Convention with at least 50% of exhibitors launching a new product or service each year. #SAC2017 also sees the introduction of network, advertising and workshop packages for exhibitors who want to go the extra mile, and tap into the hearts and minds of those attending the most exclusive event Where Sport Meets.
With over 1,500 key decision-makers in attendance to discuss the business of sport, this reason alone is compelling for exhibitors. On top of this, SportAccord Convention works closely with media worldwide, who delivered more than 1,500 unique news stories across all media platforms at #SAC2016.
SportAccord Convention is also host to annual general meetings of governing bodies, as well as bid cities, and once again, will welcome a delegation from the International Olympic Committee.
The SportAccord Convention official schedule will also include a plenary conference as well as additional conference programmes including City Forum, LawAccord and MediaAccord. These sessions are intended for International Federations and businesses who want to meet, get up to speed and take away the latest news and views from sporting leaders.
