Testimonials

SportAccord provides a unique platform for the global sports industry because it allows all the sports federations to intersect and interact with the key stakeholders of the industry.  Sponsors. Media.  Agencies. And each other.  For me - SportAccord gives me a forum to learn from others and for me to share my expertise with the industry.  It is a must- attend event. Giles Morgan , , G D Morgan Consulting
SportAccord is the most important platform to connect with the leaders of the International Sports Movement and major companies involved in the sports industry. Attending SportAccord’s side events and workshops is a great opportunity to learn new skills, best practices and provide excellent ideas and clear actions to plan for future growth of our sport. Michal Buchel , , International Sambo Federation
SportAccord is a valuable event for me to attend. It provides me with the opportunity to connect with sport leaders and business representatives on an issue of common interest: “Athletes” who of course are the basis of sport. It is invaluable to be able to liaise with the SportAccord attendees to collaborate with and to educate on initiatives to improve athlete health and well-being, which ultimately enhances their sport performances and longevity in sport. Dr Margo Mountjoy , , McMaster University
SportAccord has been the best place for us to meet the International Sporting Community. The Japan Sport Council, as a national sport agency, had more than 200 business meetings with the decision makers of Sports at SportAccord since 2012 and has successfully developed, through these direct dialogues, a number of international collaborations and projects from grass roots to a high performance level with Japan. Takahiro Waku , , Japan Sport Council
SportAccord provides the Badminton World Federation (BWF) with a valuable platform for engaging and networking with key institutional stakeholders such as other International Federations and the IOC and IPC on an annual basis. It is also great for us to meet potential commercial and host city stakeholders to see how we can partner together to grow the sport of badminton. Thomas Lund , , World Badminton Federation
