Connecting Our Industry to Grow Participation, Sustainably

11th – 13th July 2022, Melbourne


Welcome to the National Sports & Physical Activity Convention for 2022

The National Sports & Physical Activity 2022 (NSC22) recognises 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 (likely May 2022), possible austerity measures starting in the next year or so, the growing sedentary lifestyles and the impact of COP26 on the sport and climate change.

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.

This year’s NSC aims to reconnect the industry, reach out to the diverse industry sectors, with opportunities to learn from global and national industry thought leaders. With a new extended format, NSC22 should not be missed, and now includes:

    • Extension from 2 to 2½ days program, to embrace the NSC Oration, additional tours, Innovation Awards and networking (Monday 11th July)
    • Additional networking time for delegates, collaborators, sponsors and exhibitors (now 8 hours)

    • Over 40 peak bodies supporting and participating at NSC22, keen to seek out the latest conversations and solutions
      Strong strategic focus on conference themed streams to allow equally strong alignment and opportunity for collaborators, sponsors and exhibitors

NSC will work with collaborators, sponsors, and industry partners to provide a Blueprint for organisations responsible for community sport, physical activity and the health and wellbeing of their communities to embrace and make a difference locally.

    • Our Children and the Education Systems – connecting schools, children and teachers with participation opportunities
    • Sport, Climate Change and Sustainability – embracing environmental responsibility in the way we plan, build, and manage events and facilities
    • Industry Leadership and Governance – the direction, leadership and resourcing of the industry is fundamental to our ability to be successful over the next decade
