IPC Academy Campus: Inclusion Summit and Games Experience Programme


The 2016 IPC Academy Campus will take place alongside the Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro between 6-17 September 2016, giving stakeholders of major sports events the chance to learn from their peers during the event.

Delivered by the IPC Academy - the IPC’s educational division created in 2009 as a partnership between the IPC and the World Academy of Sport (WAoS) – the 2016 IPC Academy Campus is a unique event-based learning initiative that will include an Observers’ Programme, Games Experience Programme and Inclusion Summit.

Major Events International is a media partner to the Games Experience Programme and Inclusion Summit.

Speaking about the benefits of attending the IPC Academy Campus, the largest event learning programme organised within the major sport events world, Xavier Gonzalez, CEO of the International Paralympic Committee, said: “The 2016 IPC Academy Campus gives all stakeholders a unique and better understanding into the complexities of organising and maximising the benefits from a major sporting event. It aims to share best practice, knowledge and key learnings from previous major sport events, whilst giving those taking part a chance to experience the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games from both the front and back of house.”

Chris Solly, Director of the World Academy of Sport, added: “These high level programmes will provide attendees with the opportunity to network with a number of key Event organisers from the Organising Committees of the Olympic and Paralympic Games for PyeongChang 2018, Tokyo 2020 and Beijing 2022, among other major sports events representatives. The IPC Academy Campus provides organisers of major sports events with the opportunity to learn valuable insights from their peers in an innovative hands-on setting.”

A must-attend Cocktail Reception will bring proceedings to a close on 16 September and allow attendees to network with all participants of the Campus.
