Organising Successful Sport Events in Partnership with Tourism Bodies.
The who’s who of South Africa’s sports industry will meet-up with the country’s tourism bodies on 18-19 May 2018 for the Sports Events Forum, which coincides with this year’s edition of the Arnold Classic Africa Sports Festival in Sandton, Johannesburg. Delegates will debate sustainable event strategies and learn from government tourism bodies on how to forge sustainable partnerships.
The Forum will feature debates on the best practices required to manage sport events in a disruptive economy created by social and digital media and its impact on sponsorship and marketing as well as online video, podcasts and live-event broadcasting strategies respectively.
Managing sport events is no longer a part-time consideration and the Summit will also unpack the key challenges facing executives on the issue of governance and ethics to ensure transparency and accountability.
The Forum will kick off with a round table debate on the role of government in supporting sport events on the continent.
The Forum will also host a number of plenary and panel discussions with sports and tourism leaders exchanging their vision for sport events in South Africa.
Two key sessions will focus on the best practices required when Staging Sustainable Mass Participation Sport Events as well as Managing Sports Leagues and Tournaments respectively.
Each session will have highly interactive panel discussions with some of the world’s premier industry thought leaders and administrators, sharing their know-how on sustainable strategies in a highly participative and learning environment.
The event will also feature a Sport Events Sponsorship Session, where both delegates and panelists alike, will engage each other on the key issues pertaining to commercial partnerships in sport events.
Some of Africa’ leading sponsorship decision-makers will share their key considerations when deciding to sponsor and partnering sport events.
The Forum will also launch the 2018 Sport Events Awards, which is slated for later in the year, to bestow accolades in almost 100 different categories for the leading sport events, leagues and tournaments, sports executives, the media and sponsors, etc.
The Forum will conclude with a Sponsorship Masterclass on Saturday 19 May 2018.
The Sports Event Sponsorship Report will also be released at the Summit analysing the industry’s outlook for 2018.
