In Brief The National Sports Convention (NSC) was held in July in Melbourne, and organisers say it was Australasia’s largest community sport and recreation knowledge sharing event, with the key support of the Australian Sports Commission, Sport New Zealand, the Victorian Government, VicHealth and more than a dozen peak bodies. This year the NSC more than doubled in size with 1465 individual delegates, exhibitors and registered visitors over the two days: 233 delegates came from local/state government, 215 from sport, 71 from peak bodies, 60 from education, and 130 from Belgravia Leisure. The exhibition side attracted 429 exhibitors and expo attendees. Among the global keynote speakers, IAKS president Dr Stefan Kannewischer presented two papers about global trends in the sports and leisure facility industry. In what has been reported as a chemical mixing error in the swimming pool, 22 guests were treated by firefighters for chlorine gas poisoning at Disneyland Paris, and three hotel employees and one guest were transported to hospital. The hotel swimming pool and its surrounding rooms were evacuated after the incident, which was believed to be the result of incorrectly mixing bleach and sulfuric acid. Guests complained of breathing problems and nausea. Firefighters drained the pool, after which guests were allowed to return.
