The Contemporary Group marks 10 years as SportAccord Convention Partner

SportAccord Convention announced today that The Contemporary Group will again be a Gold Partner of SportAccord Convention for this year’s edition of the event taking place from 6-11 April 2014 at the Susesi Convention Centre in Belek/Antalya, Turkey. The 12th annual SportAccord Convention will be the first time the world sport summit is held in Turkey - and it will be the 10th time in partnership with The Contemporary Group.

The Contemporary Group contributes to the successful delivery of hundreds of sporting, entertainment and political events on a yearly basis. Contemporary International (CI), the leader in global event management, is the Official Supplier of Event Services to the Sochi 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games starting this week in Russia.

"While 2014 plays host to the Winter Games it also marks our 10th year of partnership with SportAccord Convention," said Stephen Mirabile, President & COO of Contemporary Group. "We are truly honoured to be a part of a community of innovators and leaders within the sport events industry. We are excited to continue being a part of an event where we are able to effectively collaborate with industry professionals, develop relationships that promote positive business opportunities and continue to enhance our commitment to best practices in international event management."

Mr. Mirabile added: "As a Supplier of Event Services for Sochi 2014 we are counting down to the start of the Games. We look forward to connecting with our clients, colleagues and friends in Sochi, and again in Turkey during SportAccord Convention 2014."

"We are delighted that The Contemporary Group will again be a Gold Partner of our event," said Nis Hatt, Managing Director of SportAccord Convention. "A decade is a long time in our fast-moving world and it is gratifying to see that SportAccord Convention continues to retain the loyalty of The Contemporary Group as a major company in international sport."

Held in a different city every year, SportAccord Convention is a unique opportunity for international sporting leaders to engage with business, and features a dynamic exhibition as well as the annual general meetings of governing bodies of world sport.

Belek/Antalya is a developing sports hub which recently hosted the 2013 World Archery Championships. In addition, the area will welcome in May the 2014 Turkish Airlines Ladies Golf Open which is part of the Ladies European Tour.
