Final Speakers List For the International Sports Convention 2014

December 4, 2014

INTERNATIONAL SPORTS CONVENTION 2014 (ISC), taking place on December 10-11, 2014 in Palexpo, Geneva, Switzerland has established itself as one event where everything is very much under one roof.

18 Sports Conferences over 2 days, 150 speakers, 80 exhibitors and 2,000 delegates.

The convergence of the different sport segments of the industry and an inclusive entrance policy has made ISC an end of year date in everyone’s calendar – and even more so going forwards.

With ambitious plans to continuously develop and expand, its central European location of Geneva is also appealing to the global sports industry.
