LAUSANNE, Switzerland – SportAccord has extended a partnership with leading supply chain management and logistics solutions provider DB Schenker to cover the SportAccord World Sport & Business Summit 2020 in Beijing, China.

DB Schenker, a long-standing SportAccord Delivery Partner, has renewed its designation as the Official Logistics Provider of the event, having been a consistent presence at the annual gathering since the very first edition in 2003.

With dedicated multi-lingual teams located worldwide for the sport events industry, DB Schenker is ideally placed to support the needs of attendees in Beijing by offering preferential rates on logistics support surrounding SportAccord 2020, which will take place from 19-24 April.

Nis Hatt, Managing Director, SportAccord, said: “We are thrilled to have the support of DB Schenker once again as the Official Logistics Provider for SportAccord 2020. There is no question that our close working relationship over the years has had a positive contribution towards the smooth running of our events.

“DB Schenker is an obvious choice to support any logistical needs surrounding the World Sport & Business Summit 2020 in Beijing given their status as an official partner, as well as their expertise and knowledge of SportAccord.”

“As a leading global logistics provider – which has established an outstanding reputation in sport, as well as other industries – we are delighted to support the delivery of SportAccord once again next year.”
