SportAccord 2018

SportAccord - where sport meets

EventScotland was once again a Silver Partner at SportAccord, the important world sport and business summit which took place in Bangkok, Thailand on 15 – 20 April 2018. With 1,844 delegates in attendance representing 84 nationalities, the 16th edition attracted 831 organisations from across the world of sport.

The Convention is a unique opportunity for key decision-makers from sport and industry to meet, network and strategically shape agendas. SportAccord is incredibly valuable to Scotland; enhancing its visibility among 109 international sporting federations, and rights holders and providing a platform to showcase Scotland's capacity for winning and hosting world-class sporting events.

Recent examples of major international events secured for Scotland include; Glasgow 2018 European Championships, European Athletics Indoor Championships, The 2019 Solheim Cup, The 147th Open, 2020 World Men's Curling Championships, 2020 LEN European Junior Swimming and Diving Championships and UEFA EURO 2020.

Each year, EventScotland partners with The Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS) to offer a whisky tasting for delegates.The Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS) is the world’s leading whisky club, founded in Edinburgh in 1983 and now with 26,000 members internationally. The SMWS bottles exceptional single malt whiskies from a single cask, at cask strength. That makes each bottling a limited edition, and whisky in its purest form.
