  • ATR Partners with World Rugby as ConfEx Nears


    (ATLANTA) – Around the Rings will be on the scene as a partner with the World Rugby Conference and Exhibition next month in London.

    Publisher Sheila Scott Hula said, “We are pleased to partner with World Rugby on its first conference since Rio. As our coverage in August showed, Rugby’s return to the Games was a huge success. We are pleased to help it continue its growth as an Olympic sport.”

    "World Rugby Conference and Exhibition (ConfEx) greatly appreciates the ongoing support of Around the Rings. As a valued media partner with an excellent reputation within the Olympic Movement and wider sport community, Around the Rings allows us to reach an influential audience of top level sport decision makers." Dominic Rumbles, Head of Communications, World Rugby.

    The conference will focus on the future of the sport. Rugby experienced record growth leading up to the Olympic Games. More than seven million men, women, and children across 121 nations now participate in the sport.

    Speakers at the conference will discuss the growth of women’s rugby, the health and well-being of rugby athletes, and the ability of the sport to remain on the Olympic agenda. Click here for more information.

    The World Rugby Conference and Exhibition will take place on November 14 and 15 at the Hilton London Metropole.
