LAUSANNE, Switzerland – Exhibitor uptake for the Gold Coast edition of SportAccord has risen quickly, just a few months after SportAccord officially opened its doors, inviting participation from organisations involved in the business of sport.

Taking part in the SportAccord exhibition provides unique experiences for the sporting community and this view is shared by Susan Sawbridge, Manager, New Zealand Major Events:

“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 considered to be 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 buzzing 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.

Nis Hatt, Managing Director of SportAccord commented:

“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 this year’s stunning Gold Coast and Exhibition Centre including:

1. Enhanced exhibition stands as a standard offering

2. Comfortable meeting areas

3. The lively and larger than ever SportAccord Café with lunch served daily to all delegates

4. Exhibition cocktails and ‘get-togethers’ offering myriad networking opportunities

5. Press opportunities

6. 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 everyone.
