The convention, being held in Belek/Antalya, Turkey, is a chance for international sporting leaders to engage with business.

SportAccord International Convention has had Sport Event Denmark as a partner every year since its inaugural event in 2003.

It's aim is to "attract, organise and develop large international spectator and participant events in order to help develop sport in Denmark, market Denmark internationally and get Denmark on the world map of sports [and] boost tourism in the cities that host sporting events".

Lars Lundov, chief executive of Sport Event Denmark, said: "Our ongoing partnership underlines our satisfaction with SportAccord Convention and the talented people behind it.

"SportAccord Convention is an absolute must for us on the global stage if we want to brand Denmark as an active and ideal sports event nation.

"We also want to take part in the sharing and disseminating of useful event information between all global event operators which takes place at the Convention."

"We are proud to welcome back our friends from Sport Event Denmark as Gold Partners," said Nis Hatt, managing director of SportAccord Convention.

"They have supported us from the very beginning and have been a valuable partner and contributor to SportAccord Convention, truly highlighting the value of our long-term relationship."
