FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MOBILE APP GOES LIVE FOR SPORTACCORD CONVENTION 2018 - A "VITAL NETWORKING OPPORTUNITY FOR THE SPORTS BUSINESS COMMUNITY"

LAUSANNE, Switzerland - SportAccord Convention, the biggest global gathering for all the international sports federations and sports industry, is delighted to unveil the latest release of its smart mobile app for the Convention set to take place from 15 - 20 April 2018 in Bangkok. Designed to keep attendees informed and connected at all times, with up-to-the-minute news ahead of and during the Convention, the easy-to-use mobile app is also a critical networking tool for delegates.

A popular app at SAC2017 with well over one thousand downloads, Lars Lundov, CEO of Sport Event Denmark, whose organisation were also co-hosts for the Convention in 2017 said:

“SportAccord Convention is a vital networking opportunity for the sports business community. With a packed official schedule, and around 1500 high-profile delegates in attendance during the Convention in Aarhus Denmark in 2017, the mobile app was instrumental in helping delegates access and connect with people on the delegate list, set-up meetings, plan and organise what they want to do ahead of the Convention, and receive the latest information during the Convention. The mobile app is a great networking tool for delegates.”

Registered delegates can send meeting invitations to other attendees as well as review their profiles. In much the same way as email meeting requests are made, recipients can choose whether to accept or decline, and any confirmed meetings are added to their mobile phone calendar.

The new version of the mobile app for the next SportAccord Convention includes a go-to Virtual Conference Bag enabling delegates to bookmark important information, keep track of conference sessions they wish to attend or share with colleagues at a later date, as well as favourite speakers, delegates and content.

Other new features include a social media function enabling delegates to share their experiences with everyone within their social networks. The user-interface has also been updated and is more visually intuitive to include a clear tile icon design for easy navigation. 

The official version of the SportAccord Convention mobile app can be downloaded in the Apple and Google Play stores with delegates up and running in less than a minute.

To network and connect with #SAC2018 delegates including all the international sports federations, anyone involved in the business of sport can register for the SportAccord Convention in Bangkok and join the world sport and business summit as a delegate, partner and exhibitor.

Organisations and sports business leaders who are considering attending #SAC2018 can gain insights from last year’s Convention in Aarhus, Denmark and watch highlights in the SportAccord Convention Video Gallery, where many of the conference sessions are also relevant to this year’s Plenary conference which will examine how sport and sponsors can unite a complex global audience for the future.
