Sport Events Congress is the largest gathering of sport, tourism professionals, event suppliers and event management firms in Canada. One of the highlights is the Sport Events Exchange which uses a speed dating format to bring together event rights holders with destinations who are seeking new and interesting events to host. This fast-paced, exciting business-to-business marketplace has resulted in many successful matches over the years.

The outstanding professional development speaker lineup leads off with Tom Grilk, the Chief Executive Officer of the Boston Athletic Association/Boston Marathon, who will share how a tragic moment propelled the Boston Strong movement.  Warren Harper, an expert in the field of risk management, will also be one of the featured presenters.  One of the breakout sessions is devoted to new, unorthodox and trending events that are taking sport tourism by storm.
