HOST CITY is following on from the success of its inaugural Bid to Win conference by supporting the Host Cities And Sports Events conference, which takes place in Geneva within the International Sports Convention (ISC) on 10th-11th December.
A number of speakers who featured in HOST CITY Bid to Win will be making an appearance at Host Cities and Sports Events, including David Grevemberg, CEO, Commonwealth Games Federation; Ric Birch, Managing Director, Filmmaster Special Events; and Nick Varley, Founding Partner and CEO, Seven46.
HOST CITY shares sponsorship of the conference with sports PR firm Calacus, insurer AON and TV production company Actua.
The ISC features 18 conferences with a total of 150 speakers, including FIFA presidential candidate Jerome Champagne and former Manchester United FC Manager David Moyes.
The four Event Partners for ISC are UNICEF, ASPIRE, MAPEI and the Qatar Financial Centre Authority (QFC).
“We are very proud to work with UNICEF in assisting them to achieve their goals,” said Nigel Fletcher, Chief Executive of the International Sports Convention.
“The ISC focusses on the business of sport, and many are there to grow their businesses, which is what we set out to facilitate but we as organisers wanted to have a balance and re-emphasize the power of sport in today’s world.”
MAPEI supplies adhesives and chemical products for building sport facilities, such as the installations of swimming pools and running tracks, for Olympic Games and numerous international sports events.
The host of the 2006 Asian Games, Qatar’s ASPIRE Zone offers a unique sports medicine, research and education destination for the international sports industry among some of the world’s finest sport venues.
The QFC Authority is the commercial and strategic arm of the Qatar Financial Centre, a thriving jurisdiction for global and regional financial services firms looking to capitalise on the opportunities offered by the region.
“It is an exciting time for Qatar, now and especially the road to 2022 and we look forward to working with Qatar Financial Centre,” said Fletcher.
