The National Sports Convention (NSC) 2020 has, in consultation with its key stakeholders, chosen to
reflect the Governments guidance and realign the NSC 2020, from 13 – 15 July in Melbourne until later
in the year.

Due to the escalation of COVID-19 and recognising the very current fluid environment that we all find
ourselves in, the NSC are now working with the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, speakers
and collaborators to re-schedule NSC to early November 2020. Recognising that the industry needs to
focus on how it can continue to support the community to stay healthy and exercise in the short-term
and then how to plan to resurrect the sector once COVID -19 has been supressed. We recognise these
are very difficult times and wish to continue to support our industry and the people that make this
industry so amazing.

The NSC is Australia’s largest community sport and recreation convention and we are very proud to be
working with over 40 peak body collaborators to bring opportunities for the industry, to be inspired by
global approaches and local insights, and we will continue to work with key collaborators, speakers and
sponsors to ensure that the rescheduled dates will be just as successful.

Our first priority will always be to ensure the health and safety of everyone, including delegates,
speakers, visitors, our personnel, event partners and members of the local community. We will
continue to provide updates via our website and once we have finalised the new dates, we will provide
the updated program. We will also be exploring with key industry peak bodies how we can incorporate
this year rescheduled NSC to kickstart the sector again.

The NSC organisers wish to thank the industry for your support and understanding.
