The Slovak Olympic and Sports Committee (SOŠV) is set to host its first in-person Sport (R)Evolution conference later this month, primarily focusing on sustainability in sport.

The event is due to be held at the Hotel NH Gate One in the Slovakian capital Bratislava on November 16, and attended by Government representatives as well as officials from sport organisations and event management.

Themes related to sustainability, financing and the organisation of sports events in Slovakia are all set to be discussed at the conference, with the main emphasis on sustainability in sport.

The International Olympic Committee's senior sustainability manager Julie Duffus is expected to deliver a presentation to outline approaches that can be taken by sports organisations to educate different audiences on sustainability.

Slovakia held the European Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF) in Banská Bystrica earlier this year, and the event's executive director Peter Hamaj is set to address delegates at the conference.

He is expected to discuss methods used to attract sponsors for the EYOF, and how it differed from other large sports events.

The last in-person edition of the Sport (R)Evolution conference was held before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2019.

The SOŠV has been recognised by the International Olympic Committee since 1993 following the split of Czechoslovakia.

It has competed at every Summer and Winter Olympics since, winning one gold, two silvers and one bronze at Tokyo 2020 and one gold and one bronze at Beijing 2022.
