    “The SportAccord Convention exhibition is always a popular draw and sells out year-on-year and with over 20 exhibitors already signed-up, this is a great start," Managing Director of SportAccord Convention Nis Hatt said in a statement.

    "Everyone with a vested interest in sport is here under one roof at SportAccord Convention and exhibitors see SportAccord Convention as an opportunity to connect with sporting business leaders. It goes without saying, having a booth enables exhibitors to highlight their products, services or sport and in the case of cities and regions, an exhibition booth provides a meeting point for international federations and sponsors to discuss future events and opportunities.”

    Plenary sessions will be held on the first two days of the seven-day convention. Beyond the opening sessions, delegates will also have the opportunity to attend the exhibition hall along with numerous workshops.

    The convention will once again feature MediaAccord. The LawAccord segment will also be held in conjunction with the event again next year.

    Two new segments will be featured the SportAccord convention including "City Accord" and the SAC Cafe.
