Pentathlon GB will host this year's International Modern Pentathlon Federation (UIPM) World Coaches Conference from tomorrow.
The event at the Manchester Conference Centre in the English city is due to run until Sunday (November 13) and is billed as a "unique" event.
Coaches, practitioners and managers from around the world will gather to "develop their knowledge" and share their experiences of the Olympic sport, which features swimming, fencing, riding, shooting and running.
The UIPM said they were expecting an "inspirational" weekend with building a "community of practice" for the modern pentathlon coaching family seen as a key aim.
This will help to guide athletes from foundation to elite level, it is hoped.
Exploring relevant "hot topics" specific to performance will also be on the agenda, as well as plans to provide an "inspirational learning experience".
Coaches will also be able to network with their peers from across the globe.
Speakers will include Dominic Mahony, Great Britain's Olympic team manager, who will serve as Conference lead.
Alexandre França and Kim Raisner, the head coaches of Brazil and Germany respectively, will also take to the stand alongside Jan Bartu, Pentathlon GB's performance director.
Athlete Jenny Meadows, a World Championship bronze medallist for Britain over 800 metres, will also speak, as well as her husband Trevor Painter, a British athletics coach.
Italian Dario Fegatelli and Uruguayan Jhon Godoy will both give presentations after they were confirmed as the two winners of the "Making a Difference - My approach to Modern Pentathlon Coaching" competition.
Judges chose their entries as the best after 13 papers were received from across the world.
Their flight tickets and accommodation in Manchester will be covered by the UIPM.
