International Federations Summit 2021
SAVE THE DATE : The next International Federations Summit will be held on the 12th - 14th April 2022 in Lausanne, Switzerland
2021 International Federations Summit
PRESENTING. NETWORKING. CONNECTING.
This 4th edition of the International Federations summits previously held in Lausanne Switzerland aimed to ‘tear up the rule book for virtual summits’ and focus on connectivity with intimate, highly focused workshops across a range of disciplines.
The two-day summit on the 21st & 22nd April 2021 involved 20 individual, 90 minute workshops with a total of 177 attendees consisting of 53 different sports federations, 53 commercial companies and 13 host cities represented. The summit offered staggered timings to accommodate our international community and attendees in different time zones, with all workshops recorded and uploaded onto the online platform to allow users to re visit or catch up on any sessions missed throughout the 2 days. The workshops gave the attendee’s an opportunity to introduce their organisation, pose questions and discuss topical industry themes with their session cohort and the session ‘VIP’s’. The overall reaction to the summit so far has been very positive and we are confident that the trust in our ability to enhance knowledge transfer and manage the interface between rights holders and commercial suppliers has delivered all attendees with a much-valued experience. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the insightful discussions and made this summit a success!

“ We sponsored a workshop at the IFS as it allowed us to get more brand awareness and new connections. I would recommend future sponsorship as it provided value for money: for a company we are trying to target stadium and venues, it had all the right delegates to do that.”- Ali Nasser, Sales Director - Arana Security
