Sports Stakeholders to discuss Sustainable Partnerships.
The inaugural Sports Partnership Summit (SPS) will be held as a hybrid event on 9-10 September 2022, in Cape Town, to unpack the essential strategies required to forge sustainable partnerships between all the sector's stakeholders.
The main objective of the SPS is to define the Social Impact such partnerships could deliver to society at large as well as the direct beneficiaries of these stakeholders.
It is with this in mind that SPS will also seek direction as to how the sector could create a close alignment with the objectives of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and ultimately create inclusivity through optimal levels of social cohesion within the country.
SPS will feature more than 20 leading international and South African sports business personalities, who'll be sharing their thought leadership on how the industry should put in place, the most sustainable strategies required, for its future survival, whilst also taking cognisance of its overall impact on society, per se.
It will also host leaders from some of the world's premier sports federations and executives sharing their international experiences and outlook for sport, post the Covid-19 pandemic.
SPS will also feature an Awards programme to bestow recognition on sports development agencies and personalities, respectively, for their unselfish endeavours in this vibrant industry.
SPS will primarily focus on the key strategies required to create sustainable partnerships between federations, professional franchises and clubs, municipalities, provincial departments and social change agencies, sports business companies and the media, etc.
The Covid-19 pandemic and accompanying lockdowns have certainly forced organisations, including those in the sports sector, to pivot their whole value proposition and one of the consequences of operating under these restrictions was, the fact that even sports entities have realised that in order to survive and to continue delivering on their mandate, they also need to collaborate and form sustainable partnerships with their counterparts.
Essentially, the main focus of SPS is to start an inclusive process on how all stakeholders could collaborate on a wider scale in terms of creating a sustainable environment for all segments of South African sport, to grow and prosper, post the Covid-19 pandemic.
SPS will also feature another exciting session in the form of the World Sports Leadership panel discussion, where delegates will be exposed to an international perspective and outlook pertaining to social impact partnerships.
Day Two of SPS will afford delegates the opportunity to join a tour of integrated municipal sports projects as well engaging with grassroots development projects.
