UK Govt's 2007 Global Sports conference details

UK Trade and Investment will be fielding a cast of international games organisers at its Global Sports conference in London on 7-8 March 2007. The event will be opened by Sports Minister, Richard Caborn and will also include the British representative to the IOC, Sir Craig Reedie. According to Sport Business, there is already strong support from many international organising committees, past and present and "BOCOG, VANOC, ATHOC, SportDenmark, and Sochi 2014 Bid Committee have all shown a keen interest in headlining the event."

UK T&I’s Andrew Bacchus said, “this is the first time that so many senior level representatives from bidding and hosting nations and cities will be presenting at the same conference. Major games organisers face increasingly high stakes and it is essential that they get the right commercial partnerships in place. Our intention is to raise the level of debate to the very highest and make a substantial contribution to partnership success”

Subtitled Partnership Excellence in Global Sport, the conference will be held at the Grange City Hotel, London, over two days with a networking gala dinner designed to give delegates access to games organisers representing £millions in contracting opportunities.
