The SportAccord Convention has confirmed that its 2011 City Forum in London will take place at the Debating Chamber of London’s County Hall on Tuesday, April 5 (source).
The annual gathering for registered SportAccord Convention delegates will explore how to avoid 'white elephants' and whether emerging markets are really ready to host sporting events. There will also be a session on bringing sports events to city centres, with a case study on Big Air Snowboarding.
H.E. Sheikh Saoud Bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani, secretary general of the Qatar National Olympic Committee, Olympic Park Legacy Company CEO Andy Altman and FIFA competitions director Inaki Alvarez will speak at the City Forum. Populous senior principal Jerry Anderson, Architecture for Humanity executive director Cameron Sinclair and Spyros Capralos, the chairman of the Athens Stock Exchange who served as the executive director of the Athens 2004 Olympics, will also take part.
London's County Hall is located just across the street from the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel, the main venue for the SportAccord Convention from April 3-8. For more information on the City Forum and the SportAccord Convention, visit www.sportaccordconvention.com.
