Our Mission SportAccord Convention is the world’s top tier annual event at the service of sport, focused on driving positive change internationally, and dedicated to engaging rights holders, organising committees, cities, businesses and other organisations in the development of sport.

Our vision



mission & vision 10

SportAccord Convention has now entered its second decade as the premier sports gathering involving all of the International Sports Federation rights holders. Our mission is to nurture and develop the cooperative spirit of the diverse international sporting community, and to make SportAccord Convention synonymous with connecting people from around the globe and throughout the entire spectrum of sport. We take pride in listening, and aim to be a catalyst for cooperation, communication and collaboration between people, business, sporting bodies and governments. Owned by SportAccord, ASOIF and AIOWF, the 6-day event comprises the annual meetings of 107 International Olympic and nonOlympic Sports Federations and Organisations, two and a half days of diverse conference sessions, an extensive industry exhibition, and a wide variety of scheduled networking opportunities throughout the week. To date, the International Olympic Committee have also held their spring Executive Board meeting at the Convention. Since 2003, when the event first took place in Madrid, the Convention has been held in Lausanne, Berlin, Seoul, Beijing, Athens, Denver, Dubai, London, Québec City and this year, in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The 2014 event will take place in Belek/Antalya, Turkey, with several other cities currently bidding to host SportAccord Convention in the coming years. With up to 1700-2000 delegates from all over the world, SportAccord Convention is the key industry event for members of the international sporting community wanting to liaise with colleagues, exchange ideas and knowledge, and meet potential new partners from all areas of the sports world.

Other facets of the SportAccord Convention portfolio include: yyThe popular SportAccord Convention After Hours Bar, one of the week’s key networking sites. This will be located at the Sokos Hotel Palace Bridge, and will be open Tuesday May 28 to Thursday May 30. yyThe Sports Demo Zone, which returns to the Exhibition Hall again this year, allowing various sports to showcase their disciplines live throughout the week. yyThe First Comers Breakfast, taking place on the morning of Tuesday May 28, designed to give first-time attendees to SportAccord Convention a brief guide to making the most of their week with us. yyOur SportAccord Convention event publication, The Daily, which is distributed free of charge every morning at the breakfast restaurant of each hotel, and will update you on all of the latest Convention news.


yyThe NetWorker, which allows attendees to identify and communicate with other delegates on-line prior to the event, to set up meetings with the people they most want to meet during the week. yyThe IF and City Directories, featured both on the SportAccord Convention website ( and in our post-event SportAccord Convention Annual. These provide a useful guide for matching up potential host cities with future international sporting events. yyThe annual IF Forum, which we organise each November in Lausanne.

SportAccord is the umbrella organisation for 107 international sports federations and organisations. Its mission is to unite and support the common interests of the sports movement. Activities include the organisation of the Multi-Sports Games (SportAccord World Combat Games, SportAccord World Mind Games, SportAccord World Beach Games, SportAccord World Artistic Games, SportAccord World Urban Games); doping-free sport; social/environmental responsibility and integrity; the International Federations recognition process; the Online Community platform, the World Sports Index, The Sports Hub as well as several other strategic initiatives, all developed and implemented on behalf, and to the benefit, of SportAccord’s members. This year’s SportAccord International Convention takes place in Saint Petersburg, Russia. This beautiful and culturally rich city will also be the host of the second edition of SportAccord World Combat Games (18-26 October 2013) which promote values of self-control, determination and technical mastery. The event programme features Martial Arts and Combat Sports; Aikido, Boxing, Fencing, Judo, Jujitsu, Karate, Kendo, Kickboxing, Muaythai, Sambo, Savate, Sumo, Taekwondo, Wrestling, Wushu. The sports combine unique elements of culture, wisdom, and friendship to create an elite sports competition, called “the Art of Combat”. This year will also feature the third edition of SportAccord World Mind Games (to take place in Beijing, China) - an event that promotes strategy, intelligence and mental stamina. There are five participating mind sports; Bridge, Chess, Draughts, Go and Xiangqi (Chinese Chess). The above-mentioned events are just two in the portfolio of Multi-Sports Games developed by SportAccord. The Multi-Sports Games, which group Olympic and non-Olympic sports with common backgrounds, focus on: 1) promoting excellence and diversity in sport 2) encouraging cross-sports exchanges and creating a unique atmosphere for athletes and fans; and 3) raising awareness about social and sustainability issues. Other events in development include the World Beach Games, the World Artistic Games and the World Urban Games. SportAccord’s Integrity Unit takes a leading role in the provision of generic tools and services for its members to assist them in combating the scourge of match-fixing in sport. An Integrity Package launched in 2013 includes a Code of Conduct, Model Rules, Guide to Integrity in Sport, Integrity Database and the revamped E-Learning ‘RealPlayer’ Programme. The Unit has been actively collaborating with international partners such as the EU, Council of Europe, Interpol, the United Nations, and the World and European Lotteries Associations to address the integrity of sport including defining a framework for better governance within sports organisations. The Social Responsibility Unit has been instrumental in forging the global efforts to increase the positive social, environmental and economic impacts of sports events through a Sustainability Event Management strategy launched during the IF Forum 2012. SportAccord supports its members in 5 areas in their sustainability journey: 1. Training and Education, 2. Implementation, 3. Reporting, 4. Certification and 5. Communication.

Founded in 1983 by the 21 International Federations governing the sports included in the Programme of the 1984 Summer Olympic Games, ASOIF was created to form a unifying and cohesive link between the summer Olympic IFs, the IOC and the organisers of the Olympic Games and now has 28 members. ASOIF’s role is to serve and represent the Summer Olympic International Federations in the most competent and professional manner on all issues of common and global interest. This includes the Summer Olympic Games and Youth Olympic Games, all affairs within the Olympic Movement including those related to the World AntiDoping Agency and the Court of Arbitration for Sport, issues such as the fight against illegal betting and corruption in sport and all other matters that affect its member Federations. This year, ASOIF celebrates its thirtieth anniversary by welcoming its third President, Francesco Ricci Bitti. Under the previous twelve year presidency of Denis Oswald ASOIF took great strides towards binding the Summer Olympic sports together in a manner that promoted and celebrated their unity for the collective enhancement of the sports and the Olympic Movement in general. This spirit will be consolidated under President Ricci Bitti, and the new presidency will also see a marked increase not only in ASOIF’s daily operations, but also in the scope of its representation and projects for the benefit of its members. ASOIF is administered by an executive body, the Council, which consists of its President and six additional individual members from different IFs. The ASOIF office is located in the House of Sport in Lausanne and is led by the Executive Director, Andrew Ryan.

host city information

saint petersburg In just 300 years Saint Petersburg has had many faces. Peter the Great’s folly, built on May 16, 1703 on a swamp and intended to turn Russia’s face towards the West, soon became a magnificent city reflecting the majesty of the Russian Empire. Then it was the “cradle of the Revolution”, where Lenin came to power. During the Second World War it became a symbol of a national pride. Today it is Russia’s cultural capital, with a wonderfully preserved heritage and an international arts programme. Taken together, these four itineraries encompass the city’s sight-seeing highlights. Individually, they show the influences that shaped the city: imperial, Russian and Soviet. Standing at the intersection of various sea, river, and land routes, Saint Petersburg became Russia’s gateway to Europe and the country’s strategic center, the point closest to the countries of the European Union. Saint Petersburg counts about 5 million of inhabitants. It is the largest city in Europe that is not a capital and the world’s largest, most northern city: the 60th parallel, on which the city lies, passes through Greenland, Anchorage, Alaska and Oslo, the capital of Norway. Saint Petersburg is famed for its white nights, a major tourist attraction. For more than 200 years, Saint Petersburg was the resplendent capital of the great Russian Empire, and remains the country’s cultural and spiritual center to this day. A great part of buildings in the City as well as the beautiful Palaces of the outskirts are included into UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Saint Petersburg is one of the sport centers of Russia. Annually the City hosts international sport events. The most important international events of the nearest future are the world The World Combat Games 2013, Ice Hockey World Championship, 2016. Saint Petersburg is also well known for its sport history. Olympic motion in Russia started here and nowadays developing continuously. All in all, there were 114 Olympic champions that started their trainings in our city. Hundreds of swimming pools, ice rinks, play-fields and courts were constructed during last years and this fact shows that sport infrastructure is quickly developing.

‘What regulatory framework is needed to combat match-fixing in sport?’

09:00 - 10:20

Who: International Sports Federation legal counsel/integrity officers, sports lawyers, legislators and policy makers specialised in sports fraud. To help combat the scourge of match-fixing that is infiltrating sport around the world, a strong regulatory framework adopted by sports organizations and legislative authorities is crucial. There is general consensus that the adoption of strict regulations as well as adequate prevention and disciplinary procedures by sports organizations must be supported, in parallel, by a clear legislative framework. Fighting criminals involved in match-fixing through recourse to criminal legislation that enables investigatory powers and sanctions to guarantee both efficiency and protection of individual rights cannot be achieved without national and international legal frameworks. Furthermore, the betting laws in various jurisdictions around the world must be taken into account as gambling has significantly developed and changed in nature in the last decade substantially contributing to contemporary match-fixing characteristics. LawAccord 2013 participants will be invited to discuss national and international regulatory frameworks addressing match-fixing in order to provide participants with a clear insight on the status quo and where further regulation is required.

Hein Verbruggen, President, SportAccord Steve Townley, Chair, LawAccord Match-Fixing – Why Should You Care? Declan Hill, Dr., Author of “The Fix” LawAccord’s keynote speaker will set the scene to bear witness to the scourge of matchfixing and relate how participants can actively contribute to fighting match-fixing in sport by establishing regulatory frameworks within their sports and/or countries.

Session 1: Sports Regulations: How to Protect Your Sport and Deter Fixers? Panelists will debate the regulations that all sports should adopt including the type of disciplinary measures necessary, how to deal with inside information, the athlete as victim, whistle-blowing procedures, how to deal with parallel sports disciplinary procedures and criminal inquiries, and whether education and prevention programmes for athletes should be mandatory. Moderator: Hayden Opie, Director of Studies, Sport Law Programme, Melbourne Law University Ingrid Beutler, Director, Integrity Unit, SportAccord Haroon Lorgat, Former Chief Executive, International Cricket Council (ICC) Laila Mintas, Head of Legal and International Development, FIFA/ EWS Denis Oswald, Professor, Dr., President, World Rowing Federation (FISA), IOC member Pâquerette Girard-Zappelli, Secretary, Ethics Commission, IOC Dominic Rumbles, Head of Communications, International Rugby Board (IRB)

10:40 - 12:00

Session 2: National and International Legislation: Understanding Sports Fraud and Betting Regulations Panelists will discuss the creation of sports fraud as an offence while reflecting on national examples of fighting match-fixing through existing criminal legislation. Global betting paradigms and their influence on criminal activities will enable discussion about betting patterns and formulas, the scope of risky bets, exchanges of information between sports organisations and betting operators/regulators and whether a centralised monitoring system should be established. Moderator: Pâquerette Girard-Zappelli, Secretary, Ethics Commission, IOC Kevin Carpenter, Editor and Lawyer, Law in Sport, UK André-Noël Chaker, Senior Advisor to the CEO, Veikkaus, Finland Pierre Cornu, Senior Legal Counsel, International Centre for Sports Studies (CIES), Switzerland Bill Rowe, Office of Sport, Local Government of Regional Australia Harri Syvasalmi, Chair of the Drafting Group of the International Convention to Combat the Manipulation of Sports Competitions, Council of Europe Laurent Vidal, Dr., Lawyer, Professor, Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University

KEYNOTE ADDRESS: What’s Your Position? What are the main challenges cities are currently facing in the context of hosting events? How can you best position and prepare your city to host a successful sports event, while also developing a distinct cultural programme that maximises local engagement and ensures long term legacy and sustainability?

EVENT WATCH: Sweden’s Vasaloppet First held in 1922, and inspired by a run by King Gustav Vasa in 1520, the Vasaloppet is an annual long distance cross-country ski race held on the first Sunday of March, between the village of Sälen and town of Mora in Sweden. It is the oldest, longest, and, in popular consideration, the biggest cross-country ski race in the world, with more than 80,000 elite, amateur and youth athletes competing during the event. Anders Selling, Managing Director, Vasaloppet

Dr Beatriz Garcia, Head of Research, Institute of Cultural Capital, University of Liverpool

16:00 - 17:00 14:00 -15:00

PANEL SESSION: The Right Fit – Matching Events With City Priorities What does your city hope to accomplish by hosting a sporting event? What is your wish list of objectives? How do you compare the potential of different events to determine which of them will suit your objectives best? What are the measurements to be used when there is often no consistent way of measuring the performance of events across a range of criteria? What are the key metrics and information sources? How can cities build sustainable capability in assessing events? Moderator: Peter Bayer, Managing Director, OSM – Opensportsmanagement Daphne Chan, Head of Research, Sportcal Andrew Craig, CEO, The Craig Company LLC Hazem Galal, Partner, State & Local Government Sector Global Leader, PricewaterhouseCoopers Qatar Nils Hoch, Head of Events/Sales Department, Olympiapark München GmbH Dr Laurine Platzky, Deputy Director General, Strategic Programmes, Western Cape Government

CASE STUDY: A Quick Guide to Multi-Sport Events Many potential host cities do not have the desire, budget, or infrastructure to ever host a World Cup or an Olympic Games. A new wave of ‘related-but-different’ multi-sport events, such as the World Mind Games, World Beach Games, and World Combat Games, now offer accessible, affordable and exciting options to host cities for which the huge mega-events are not an option. Vincent Gaillard, Director General, SportAccord

17:25 - 17:30


PANEL SESSION: Using Social Media To Maximise Benefit The growth of social media has opened up a fast-changing new range of ways for cities and sports to engage with the local public – and to expand the reach of their events beyond the city to engage social media users around the world. How can cities harness the potential of Facebook, Twitter and other platforms and tools to connect with more people (especially young people), deepen their connection with them, promote city objectives and generate more value for partners?

He has seen sport from the top, inside and out. One of the greatest ice hockey stars of all-time, he was selected for the IIHF’s International Centennial All-Star Team, with the most votes of any player in history. He was one of the first players from Russia to move to the NHL as ice hockey and pro sports entered a new controversial phase of the globalisation of talent. He managed and coached Russia’s Olympic ice hockey team. He served as Russia’s Minister of Sport for six years, and he is now a member of the upper house of the Federal Assembly of Russia.

Since 2009, Jean Todt has been the President of the FIA, the world regulator of motor sport. His long experience and his exceptional record of achievements, acquired as a rally codriver in the World Championship and then as manager of Peugeot Sport and Ferrari, give him a unique global vision of this sport, which is facing multiple challenges.

SUPER HUMAN – Sport, and the Athletes of the Future History was made at the London 2012 Olympic Games when Oscar Pistorious became the first athlete with prosthetic limbs to compete alongside able-bodied athletes, transforming the world’s understanding of what it is to be elite, excellent, and able.

The globalisation of sport, environmental objectives, economic constraints, social responsibility with regard to road safety -- the FIA, under the presidency of Jean Todt, has placed itself directly in the front line with these issues. He will answer David Eades’ questions on these present and future challenges.

When he failed to win during the Paralympic Games, controversy ensued over whether the acceptable parameters of the human form were being stretched, as his claim was that his rival had legs that were too long. These two trajectories reveal how the world of sport is likely to change in the future, as technology allows athletes to transcend biological norms in ways that do not invoke the kinds of anxieties associated with controversial methods of doping.


How will science, and the demand for entertainment, change the boundaries for sport two decades from now? What will be in and what will be out? How far will advances in technology and biology re-shape our attitude to sport, the rules of the games we play, and a level playing field on which to play?

Day 2: Thursday, 30th May, 2013

09:00 - 09:45

DEBATE: Brave New World – Bionic Sport of the Future

Jean Todt, President, FIA

Instead, the bionic athlete will epitomise human virtue, the overcoming of odds, the struggle for transcending human limits, and the collapse of biological omnipotence. How will sports deal with this brave new world? What must sports authorities consider to prepare for this posthuman future?

David is a recognised international sports manager with dynamic leadership and management capabilities. He has extensive knowledge and experience in Olympic, Paralympic and Commonwealth sport governance and management and a proven track record of forming strategic alliances, creating innovative programmes and initiatives, leading organisational change and transformation and delivering complex projects and large-scale events. As Chief Executive of Glasgow 2014 Ltd., David has the ultimate responsibility for overseeing the general management of the OC and acts as the senior staff liaison with Games Partners and stakeholders.

David Grevemberg Chief Executive, Glasgow 2014 Ltd.

Prior to joining Glasgow 2014 Ltd., David was the Executive Director of Sport and International Federation (IF) Relations at the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) headquartered in Bonn, Germany, where he served from 1999 to 2009. During David’s tenure at the IPC he was responsible for overseeing all Games-related activities associated with the development and delivery of the Paralympic Games sports programme, National Paralympic Committee services, Paralympic Village operations and technology systems and services.

David Hill joined FOX Sports in December 1993 when News Corp wrested the rights to the National Football League from CBS and he was charged with building a network quality sports division, literally from the ground up. Following the highly successful launch of the NFL on FOX, with its ‘Same Game – New Attitude’ approach and revolutionary FOXBox constant score and time graphic, the National Hockey League was added, and with it came the FOXTrax glowing puck, two early production enhancements which became the hallmark of FOX Sports under Hill. Working closely with Chase Carey, Hill next started the Fox Sports Net, a hugely successful regional sports network business, and was then moved to run the Fox Network, which was at the time languishing in a poor #4 position. With shows like David E. Kelly’s Ali McBeal, Seth McFarlane’s Family Guy, and the introduction of serial reality shows such as When Animals Attack, the Network quickly assumed the #2 position, #1 in the demo. Hill continued running FOX Sports, which by then was blossoming, now carrying MLB, Super Bowls, Stanley Cup Finals, World Series and was legitimately “FOX Sports,” which has been America’s #1 sports network for 14 consecutive years. When DIRECTV, the world’s largest satellite distribution systems became a News Corp subsidiary, Hill worked under CEO Chase Carey as President of the DIRECTV’s Entertainment Division overseeing programming services and the integration of new technologies. He returned to FOX after relinquishing his DIRECTV role, assuming the position of Chairman and CEO of the FOX Sports Media Group, which is News Corp’s U.S. based sports group which includes FOX Sports, FOX Sports Networks, SPEED, FUEL TV, FOX Soccer, FOX Deportes, the Big Ten Network and the hugely popular, which in August 2012 set a record for monthly traffic totaling 46 million unique users. Hill has been hailed as a visionary, credited with launching US sports television into a modern age. In short order, and despite initial skepticism, the FOXBox became a ubiquitous staple for all sports broadcasts, and Hill is named on the patents for the yellow first down marker for football, the glowing puck, and baseball’s in-base microphones. He began his career with News Corp. in 1988 when he helped launch Sky Television, Britain’s first satellite distributed television service. He then became Executive Producer of Eurosport – Europe’s first pan European sports service, and then launched Sky Sports, which with the addition of the English Premier League, became a powerhouse part of what is now British Sky Broadcasting.

Stephen Townley has a unique understanding of the economic and legal models that create and deliver value to sport and their protection in different jurisdictions throughout the world. He has a contemporary understanding on how the model is changing and is accustomed to presenting and dealing at board level with commercial organisations, government and sports bodies. With a strong track record of persuading, negotiating and selling, he has directly delivered very unique and ground breaking deals (often in complex and difficult circumstances). Stephen trained as a litigator and that perspective provides a further insight on the possible causes when “deals go wrong”.
