Rugby Expo confirms dates

Sport Business News

The fourth edition of Rugby Expo, the world–leading conference and exhibition for all members of the international rugby community, has confirmed it will take place on 14 –15 November 2012 at Twickenham Stadium in London.

The event was supported by many of the sports most influential organisations including the International Rugby Board, Premiership Rugby, ERC and all home nations when it made its debut at Twickenham last year. Rugby Expo 2011 attracted over 1, 000 attendees and a sold out exhibition floor provided delegates with unrivalled access to some of the industrys key decision makers. Rugby Expo 2012 will deliver two days of hard hitting plenary and workshop sessions and a packed exhibition floor profiling some of the industrys leading suppliers. Day one content will focus on the professional game, with a switch to the grass roots game on day two. The content will showcase a leading line up of speakers from key sports organisations and suppliers, clubs and important names from rugby union and league. With many of the exhibitors and supporters which attended last years event already re–signed and building on the positive feedback from last years event, Rugby Expo 2012 will again be hosting the plenary sessions in the main exhibition area, creating an auditorium on the exhibition floor from which delegates can listen to and debate with high profile experts from the industry. Commenting on the launch of this years event, John Hockey, chairman of Rugby Ventures which owns and operates Rugby Expo said: We are delighted to be able to confirm our return to Twickenham for 2012. The venue offers the ideal location, facilities and set up for Rugby Expo as the event combines a comprehensive conference and workshop programme and exhibition floor. The event has been well–supported by the RFU and Twickenham Experience and we are already engaging with a number of key organisations including the home unions, ERC, Premiership Rugby and the IRB. With further announcements soon to follow, Rugby Expo 2012 will undoubtedly be the biggest and best instalment yet.
