SportAccord Gold Coast event generates exhibitor interest
February 22, 2019

The organisers of the Gold Coast edition of SportAccord have advised of significant exhibitor uptake for the upcoming event, just a few months after SportAccord began inviting participation from organisations involved in the business of sport.

Taking part in the SportAccord exhibition provides unique experiences for the sporting community, a shared by Susan Sawbridge, Manager, New Zealand Major Events who states “SportAccord is the greatest annual opportunity for New Zealand to showcase its strengths, as an events destination, allowing us to connect with International Federations, other host cities and suppliers.”

The SportAccord exhibition is an important aspect of the World Sport & Business Summit and its attributes can be viewed via the Bangkok exhibition video tour. Its prime location together with the vibrant SportAccord Café, provides the ideal setting to have business conversations, as well as enjoy the many networking events on offer throughout the week.

Organisations looking to exhibit at SportAccord 2019 can review their options in the interactive floor plan and register for the Gold Coast edition of SportAccord ahead of the next price rise early March.

SportAccord Managing Director, Nis Hatt added “the exhibition provides a dynamic platform and advantage for industry, cities and regions, as well as sporting bodies, to showcase their organisation - whether it’s to kick-start a new initiative or share latest developments.

“Each year we look at ways to improve and ‘localise’ the SportAccord exhibition, and this year is no exception. With the support of Host City Gold Coast, we will be revealing some new additions for SportAccord 2019.”

Exhibitors and delegates alike will be able to enjoy a host of benefits at the Gold Coast and Exhibition Centre including:

• Enhanced exhibition stands as a standard offering
• Comfortable meeting areas
• The lively and larger than ever SportAccord Café with lunch served daily to all delegates
• Exhibition cocktails and ‘get-togethers’ offering myriad networking opportunities
• Press opportunities
• Close proximity to the conference areas accessed via the exhibition hall

With cities, regions and industry evenly matched with international sports federations this year, the exhibition will have much to offer.

To take advantage of all these opportunities and much more, organisations can register and exhibit for SportAccord 2019. The Official Schedule enables attendees to enjoy multiple networking events the popular three-day Exhibition, access 50+ conference sessions, visit the Sports Festival and take part in cultural activities in Gold Coast.
