SportAccord Convention Selects Top Hotel for 2012 Event

June 23, 2011

The SportAccord Convention has announced that next year’s event will be hosted at Québec’s famous Fairmont Le Château Frontenac.

The Chateau Frontenac, which is a designated National Historic Site of Canada, is within walking distance of the Quebec City Convention Centre, and is the location where the SportAccord Convention will celebrate it’s 10th anniversary next year. The event will take place from May 20-25 in 2012.

Anna Helman, SportAccord Convention executive director, said: “The unique character of the city of Quebec has encouraged us to hold our event next year in a convention centre rather than a hotel venue. We will have the best of both worlds, with both abundant space and a sense of intimacy to encourage networking. The historic Chateau Frontenac is practically synonymous with Quebec and makes a perfect complement to the Convention Centre, which is recognised as one of the very best in the world.”

The Convention features top-level conference sessions and an exhibition as well as the annual general meetings of governing bodies of world sport.
