SportAccord Convention announced today that Sport Event Denmark will once again be a Gold Partner of SportAccord Convention for this year’s edition taking place from 6-11 April 2014 at the Susesi Convention Centre in Belek/Antalya, Turkey. It will be the 12th annual SportAccord Convention and Sport Event Denmark has participated as a partner every year since the inaugural event in 2003, most recently as a Gold Partner for five years.

“Our ongoing partnership underlines our satisfaction with SportAccord Convention and the talented people behind it,” said Lars Lundov, CEO, Sport Event Denmark. “SportAccord Convention is an absolute must for us on the global stage if we want to brand Denmark as an active and ideal sports event nation. We also want to take part in the sharing and disseminating of useful event information between all global event operators which takes place at the Convention.”

“We are proud to welcome back our friends from Sport Event Denmark as Gold Partners,” said Nis Hatt, Managing Director of SportAccord Convention. “They have supported us from the very beginning and have been a valuable partner and contributor to SportAccord Convention, truly highlighting the value of our long-term relationship.”

Held in a different city every year, SportAccord Convention is a unique opportunity for international sporting leaders to engage with business, and features a dynamic exhibition as well as the annual general meetings of governing bodies of world sport.

Belek/Antalya is a developing sports hub which recently hosted the 2013 World Archery Championships. In addition, the area will welcome in May the 2014 Turkish Airlines Ladies Golf Open which is part of the Ladies European Tour.
