The 2018 National Sports Convention is expanding with the support and encouragement of the industry. The prominent venue, the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, has been booked 16th – 18th July 2018.

Australia’s largest sport, recreation and physical activity convention is evolving to bring together a broader range of conferences, masterclasses and symposiums focused on

It will also feature innovative ideas on what future facilities, technologies and programs will be needed to satisfy growing demand.

The National Sports Convention brings together collaborators, peak bodies, organisations and key influences to host a range of knowledge sharing, skill development and networking opportunities on how to activate the country to be more active and participate in community sport and recreation.

Other conferences, workshops and symposiums will be added as they are confirmed.

Any National Sports Organisations and Peak Bodies who wish to be involved in any of the above or co-locate their own should connect with the Program Convenor, Martin Sheppard, to explore opportunities.
