23rd - 24th November 2011
THE single biggest sporting event to take place during 2011 is in New Zealand over five weeks in September and October. The event is of course the IRB RUGBY WORLD CUP; it features 20 international teams, and is broadcast to over 200 countries and with expected TV viewing figures in excess of four billion.
The single biggest rugby focused conference and exhibition to take place in 2011 will do so at Twickenham Stadium on 23–24 November. The event is RUGBY EXPO; the single biggest gathering of the business world of rugby including professional clubs representing both union and league, international unions and leagues, alongside the largest collection of decision makers from more than 500 grass roots clubs.
Taking place just three weeks after the World Cup final, when the sporting world is truly aware of the power and potential of rugby as a global sport, Rugby Expo 2011 will also play host to more than 50 leading speakers from across the sports industry, an expected 40 rugby focussed exhibitors and more than 1,000 attendees over the two days of the event.
RUGBY EXPO is the business world of rugby under one roof, over two days and is the world’s leading rugby convention.
In a new partnership, this year's event will take place on November 23-24 at Twickenham, utilising the stadium's first class conference facilities and providing all attendees with the opportunity to experience one of the most iconic sporting theatres in the world.
The event combines an unrivalled conference programme, master class workshops and live exhibition to produce the ideal environment for learning the latest developments in the game, networking and creating new business opportunities from the world of rugby.
It is a chance to learn from the experts across a range of sports, to meet with the most influential people in the game, debate the most topical issues and understand more about the latest commercial developments, all designed to support the ever growing professional and grass roots games.
Most of all, it is a unique opportunity to meet senior executives from all over the globe and all areas of the game in a relaxed atmosphere with unrivalled access to the key decision makers from the world of rugby.
The two day conference will allow delegates to enjoy a combination of main plenary sessions and more focused interactive workshops featuring the very ‘best in class’ speakers covering a range of subjects from commercial and marketing matters to technical, training and coaching master classes.
While attendees will have access to both days of Rugby Expo 2011, each day will see a different focus, with a shift from the professional to grass roots game.
This focus in content also ensures a clearer delegate profile on each day, supports networking and contact making, allows delegates to share experiences, helps exhibitors in their positioning of products and services and makes sure the content more accurately fits the needs of the delegate.
