Diary: SportAccord Belek, Turkey 6-11 April 2014

Sport’s New Frontiers will be the theme of a new-look conference programme at SportAccord Convention 2014 in Belek/Antalya, Turkey. Delegates will be able to hear top speakers and enjoy interactive sessions in new formats outside of the main auditorium as well as inside during SportAccord Convention taking place 6-11 April 2014, at Belek’s Susesi Convention Centre.

If you could change the rules of one sport, what would you do? The interactive session on “Rule-Breakers and Game-Changers” will give delegates a chance to debate that question.

The Youth Club will offer a special up-close look at what today’s young people really think about sport and how they consume it. SportAccord Convention, Managing Director Nis Hat said:

We are shaking up our approach to the conference this year in order to deliver a really engaging range of content in formats that will make optimal use of our resort setting. As well as being one of the biggest and most modern convention centres in the Mediterranean, our location will also be a very enjoyable place to make the most of the conference programme.

A changing of the guard has been taking place around the world of sport, with new leaders assuming guiding roles in many organisations. A panel session on The New Face of Leadership will bring together some of the most influential among them. Another heavyweight plenary session on The Integrity Issue will tackle cheating in sport and explore the ways forward for International Federations and sponsors alike.
