One Convention, Many Conferences and Events, Industry Backing and with a Single Focus


It is a pleasure to invite you to attend the 2019 National Sports Convention.

This year’s program, with international and Australian experts provides the most comprehensive educational program on recreation and sports facilities in Australia.

We invite you to join collaborators, speakers and sponsors at this unique event. Our vision for 2019 is – Reimagining Sport; more people active with greater participation opportunities.

A number of conferences, symposiums, masterclasses and a dedicated expo have been combined to encourage the broadest network of delegates from play, recreation, sport, government, education, consultancy, architectural and planning sectors.

Innovation Breeds Success

To grow participation in a way that makes a real difference to society, we have sourced the latest innovations and case studies of how people and organisations are doing things differently.

To celebrate this diversity of approaches, innovation is the theme across the keynote speeches, workshops, streams, masterclasses and expo.


Keynote Speakers

We are proud to welcome our keynote speakers who have made a difference globally and within Australia to how participants view play, recreation, fitness and sport.

Innovation and thinking differently has created their success and their stories, strategies and impacts will be shared with us.
