The National Sports Convention strives to attract Global Keynote and National Speakers who share strategic insights to enhance or change the conversation around how as an industry we can encourage more people to be active.

National Sports Convention 2019 built on the previous years events and attracted over 150 speakers. 2020 will continue to be focussed on attracting speakers who change and enhance our thinking.
