Typically a one-day event, the conference will now be spread across the week of 21-25 September, with a morning and afternoon session taking place each day and our popular AGM scheduled for Wednesday 23 September.
The focus of the event will be on the hardship of the last few months, noting best practice and takeaway learnings, while also identifying the sector’s next moves as sport and recreation begins to return to play.
Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from an exceptional line-up of speakers, including Sport England CEO, Tim Hollingsworth, Sports Minister Nigel Huddleston, and Cathy O’Dowd, who is the first woman to climb Mount Everest from both sides.
Guests can also look forward to a fascinating talk from one of the world’s biggest organisations in Google.
The winners of this year’s Arthur Bell Trophy and Emeritus Award will also be revealed at Wednesday’s morning session, where HRH The Earl of Wessex will once again be on hand to present the accolades alongside Lisa Wainwright and Andrew Moss, the Alliance’s CEO and Chair.
The weeklong conference is free to attend for members and there is no limit to how many sessions you can join.
Non-members and corporates can also enjoy a week pass at £60 per person.
