December 13 - SportAccord International Convention has unveiled a new conference programme for its 2014 event in Belek that will explore the theme of "Sport's New Frontiers".
As well as being able to hear speakers, next year's meeting of sport's most powerful leaders - taking place on April 6-11 - will also allow delegates to take part in keynote slots, interviews and interactive sessions in new formats both inside the Susesi Convention Centre in the Turkish city, which is located in the Antalya Province, and outside of the main auditorium.
Among the highlights will be the "Rule-Breakers and Game-Changers" interactive session where attendees can debate what they would do if they could change the rules of one sport, while "The Youth Club" will take a look at what today's young people really think about sport and how they consume it.
Meanwhile, a panel session on "The New Face of Leadership" will bring together some of the most influential new leaders assuming guiding roles in the world of sport, while a plenary session on "The Integrity Issue" will focus on cheating in sport and explore potential solutions for both international federations and sponsors.
"We are shaking up our approach to the conference this year in order to deliver a really engaging range of content in formats that will make optimal use of our resort setting," Nis Hatt, SportAccord Convention managing director, said.
"As well as being one of the biggest and most modern convention centres in the Mediterranean, our location will also be a very enjoyable place to make the most of the conference programme."
The 2014 SportAccord International Convention is expected to attract more than 2,000 delegates.
