AUSTRALASIA’S LEADING COMMUNITY SPORT AND RECREATION CONVENTION 

Welcome to the National Sports & Physical Activity Convention for 2022

The National Sports & Physical Activity Convention 2022 (NSC22) recognizes that the industry is on the brink of a generational opportunity, with the award of the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Brisbane, the re-engineering of our industry and how we provide our services in the new Covid-world. Embracing the challenges of a Federal Election (May 2022), possible austerity measures starting in the next year or so, the growing sedentary lifestyles and climate change, the importance of COP26 on sport.

NSC22 will be embracing these challenges and opportunities with a new format, connecting the dots between the big issues, the generational opportunities and providing a plethora of new knowledge sharing and networking opportunities.
