IF Forum Will Tackle New Technologies

By Jay Stuart | September 17, 2018

The 12th International Federation (IF) Forum has confirmed partnerships with Eurosport, JLT and Sports Nevada USA for the event taking place from 5-7 November 5-7, 2018, in Lausanne.

The event, organised by SportAccord, will bring together more than 100 international sports federations, associates and observer members from the Global Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF) at the Hotel Royal Savoy in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The IF Forum provides a platform for GAISF members (both Olympic and non-Olympic) to tackle global matters related to the Sports Movement. The annual event is limited to a small number of industry partners and gives them exclusive access to an authoritative networking environment and recognition as a supporter of the Sports Movement.

This year’s IF Forum conference agenda is entitled Open Doors and Open Minds – New Tools for IFs. Key decision-makers from the international sports federations will hear from industry experts representing blockchain and cryptocurrency; robotics; 5G and livestreaming; event/ticket pricing models, and much more.

Nis Hatt, Managing Director of SportAccord, said: “We are delighted to have JLT and Sports Nevada USA with us again. Their commitment demonstrates the value a partnership brings by being involved in a high-profile event. We are also pleased to welcome Eurosport into the fold for the 2018 edition.

Limited partnerships are available and partners have access to the official schedule which includes: entry to all conference and panel sessions, workshops; VIP functions and social events; and the opportunity to deliver a presentation as part of the conference programme.
