About the SportAccord Convention

Every year, the SportAccord convention brings together representatives from more than 100 international sports federations and organisations affiliated to SportAccord (General Association of International Sports Federations), ASOIF (Association of Summer Olympic International Federations) and AIOWF (Association of the International Olympic Winter Sports Federations), together with sponsors, bidding and host cities, architects, sports lawyers, broadcasters, Games organising committees, rights holders and other specialists to discuss the key issues facing the sports industry.

Owned by SportAccord, ASOIF and AIOWF, the SportAccord convention encompasses the annual Congress and General Assembly of each association, while offering the sports community a powerful opportunity to come together in an exclusive and authoritative networking environment to build relationships, exchange knowledge and develop ideas.
