Exploring the actual and perceived benefits that mega-events bring to countries and local communities is part of every event submission, but what are the real legacies and how tangible are the benefits?
The National Sports & Physical Activity Convention (NSC) has grown since 2016 as Australia/New Zealand’s largest and most prominent community sport and recreation convention and expo. This year the NSC returns to Melbourne’s Convention and Exhibition Centre on the 27th and 28th July 2023. The organisers have worked with its 30+ collaborators to offer a program with international and Australian experts, providing the most comprehensive program on community sport recreation and sports facilities in Australia, post-covid.
