Bill Sweeney, British Olympic Association CEO, to deliver Closing Keynote at Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2016

Bill Sweeney, CEO at the British Olympic Association (BOA), is the latest high-ranking industry professional to confirm as a speaker for next month’s Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2016 conference and exhibition, where he will deliver the Closing Keynote.

During his presentation, Sweeney – who is currently on hand in Rio for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games – will advise on what the BOA look for when they are deciding on a training/base camp before a major sporting event.

Sweeney joined the BOA in November 2013 and is responsible for directing the day-to-day activities of the Association, including overseeing the Rio 2016 Summer Olympic Games, Pyeongchang 2018, Tokyo 2020 and the many other international, multi-sport events in which Team GB will compete.

The BOA is one of only a few National Olympic Committees (NOC) that receive no direct Government funding and is an independent, autonomous and self-financing operation since its inception in 1905. As a result, the Commercial, Business and Brand aspects of the BOA are of critical importance, as Sweeney will discuss during his Closing Keynote.
