During his presentation, Sweeney will advise on what the BOA look for when deciding on a training/base camp before a major event.


Sweeney joined the BOA in November 2013 and is responsible for directing the day-to-day activities of the Association, including overseeing the Rio 2016 Summer Olympic Games, Pyeongchang 2018, Tokyo 2020 and the many other international, multi-sport events in which Team GB will compete. 


The BOA is one of only a few National Olympic Committees (NOC) that receive no Government funding and is an independent, autonomous and self-financing operation since its inception in 1905. As a result, the Commercial, Business and Brand aspects of the BOA are of critical importance, as Sweeney will discuss during his Closing Keynote.


Sweeney will be in good company, joining a long and illustrious list of high-calibre sports industry professionals confirmed to speak at Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2016, such as Tokyo 2020 CEO, Mr Toshiro Muto, Rugby World Cup 2019 Organising Committee President & CEO, Mr Akira Shimazu and Japan Professional Basketball League Chairman, Mr Masaaki Okawa.



Also recently confirmed to speak is Mr Mitsuru Murai, Chairman of the J League – the top division of the Japan Professional Football League and one of the most successful leagues in Asian club football. 


In regards to the unrivalled conference program that will be delivered by the event’s stellar speaker line-up, the panel sessions focused on 'Fan Engagement' and 'Security of Crowded Places' will be presented in association with Major Events International (MEI). As well as gaining knowledge on these two specific topics, attendees visiting MEI's exhibition stand will be able to seek advice and ask for introductions. In addition, delegates may like to further benefit from the event’s association with MEI by subscribing to their bespoke program and trade mission, which compliments the objectives of Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2016.
