Successful week at SportAccord Convention

Posted on | June 14, 2013 | Category: News

The IOF had for the first time a booth at the SportAccord Convention exhibition area this year. SportAccord Convention is where the sporting world meets – it is a 6-day gathering of over 2000 leading representatives from international sport. SportAccord Convention provides the global sports community with an excellent opportunity to gather in an exclusive networking environment, and to build relationships.

The IOF’s presence at the SportAccord Convention was very useful, and many new contacts were established. The IOF booth got compliments, and the orienteering video, made by Timo Mikkola, was highly appreciated as it “showed the essence of the sport”. Several delegates commented how “orienteering really is a fantastic TV sport”.

At the Convention we also launched the Ski Orienteering book compiled by Alexander Bliznevsky. Bliznevsky was present at the Convention as a representative for the Russian Orienteering Federation.

Next year’s SportAccord Convention will be held in the beginning of April in Belek, Turkey, and the IOF will be present there as well.
