International Federations Summit 2020

12 - 13th February | Lausanne, Switzerland

"I have always felt that there is room for learning from other Federations and Governing Bodies- and the suppliers who make our events so successful. As we enter an age of unprecedented change in sport, there has never been a more important time to come together and share best practice and learn how we can mitigate risk, minimise costs and maximise revenues and efficiencies. The only way to keep up with innovation, is to understand and embrace it” comments Tom Dielen, General Secretary, MEI partner Federation, World Archery.

This echoes comments from the Executive Director of ASOIF in ‘The Future of Global Sport’ report which, “sends a clear message to International Federations on how they should deal with commercial entities and private companies.” Alongside SportAccord, this February Summit is a manifestation of this new era of collaboration.

If you want to develop your IF partnerships, join us for the 3rd International Federations Summit, in association with SVG in Lausanne on 12th February (for a networking dinner) and 13th February for a full day of content.

In order to maximise IF numbers (we are expecting between 25 and 30 IF representatives thanks to invites from Tom and also our friends at the World Urban Games and SVG), the Summit will focus on the issues that are on the agenda of International Federations, specifically:

  • How can I utilise technology to make my events safer, more efficient and more profitable?
  • What can I learn from other Federations who have solved the problems I have successfully?
  • How do I balance the need to grow my sport with the need to grow my revenues?
  • How do I find more sponsors?
  • How should I be embracing OTT?
  • How do I choose the right host city
  • What is the best way to interact with my Local Organising Committees?

Archery (our hosts for the dinner on the 12th), Hockey, Sailing, Skiing, Rowing, Table Tennis, Squash, Cycling, Volleyball, 3x3 Basketball, Canoeing, Modern Pentathlon, Skating, Extreme Sports and The World Urban Games have already confirmed.

If you have a solution for them that will minimise risk, reduce costs, or grow revenues/ fan engagement, then join us on the 12/13th to learn about their challenges and share how you can help.
