The National Sports & Physical Activity Convention (NSC) is pleased to confirm that this year’s event, scheduled 9-11 November, has now been realigned to meet the industry’s needs during Covid. The new format aims to redefine the future of industry conferences by offering a combination that flexible on-demand options, virtual and interactive keynote sessions, in-person networking and hundreds of hours of extended interviews and access to industry knowledge in the NSC Academy.

The expanded NSC conference program now offers:

  • Weekly Global and Keynote Sessions every Thursday morning (90 minutes)
  • 7 hours of on-demand workshops against each of the 5 streams
  • NSC Oration, Awards and Networking event planned for Thursday 9th December
  • Access to over 75 hours of video interviews, presentations and insights as part of the NSC Academy
  • Over 20 hours of Supplier Solutions interviews that are aligned to each of the conference streams

NSC Co-Founder Martin Sheppard commented “We have worked with our collaborators, speakers and sponsors to bring the industry an expanded program with significant increased value, which has been challenging, but exciting at the same time.”

Sheppard continues “The NSC has become Australia’s leading community sport and recreation industry conference and there is an expectation that we will continue to share global best practice with policy advocacy and case studies from across Australia and New Zealand. By adopting new platforms, NSC21 can do this and provide flexible solutions. We aim each Thursday morning (9.00am – 10.30am) to host a keynote discussion and interactive session for the industry to participate in. At the end of this session, delegates can then access approximately 7 hours of on-demand streamed workshops. This will be hosted over 5 weeks (11th November – 9th December).”
