Update: New location for SportAccord 2020 announced in Lausanne, Switzerland.


SportAccord Convention is the pre-eminent sports business annual conference to be held this year in Lausanne, Switzerland and with a theme of "Breaking Down Barriers in the Ever-Expanding World of Sport". The event (conference and exhibition) attracts over 2,000 international delegates from over 1,000 organisations including: around 100 International Sports Federations and related Associations; sponsors; cities; Organising Committees; rights holders; media; and industry suppliers to major sporting events. No other sporting conference or exhibition brings together in one place and in such numbers the key stakeholders involved in major sporting events. DIT will once again take a stand, working closely with UK Sport, Events Scotland and the Welsh Government so as to maximise synergies.


Participating UK companies on the centrally located 18sqm stand will receive:


  • Access to discounted delegate passes;
  • Corporate promotional opportunities - your company logo on the stand and a dedicated space to display company literature;
  • A company profile within the DIT dedicated event brochure;
  • Access to limited meeting areas on the exhibition stand for you to meet with business contacts;
  • Support of DIT staff on the exhibition stand, including from our Embassy in Switzerland.


SportAccord provides an opportunity for companies to meet key decision-makers and influencers in sport, expand networks through meeting with International Sports Federations, and share best practices at the most attended international convention in sport business. SportAccord is particularly relevant to companies with products and services aimed at sporting federations/associations and with it being held in Lausanne this year it is expected to be well attended by key players in the sports industry.
