REMINDER – Call for Speakers @ Sport Events Congress 2020
Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance – CSTA is currently recruiting speakers, panelists and presenters interested in sharing their experiences and best practices at the 2020 Sport Events Congress (#SEC20). It will take place at the Edmonton Convention Centre from March 24-26, 2020.
We’re looking for people to present on one of the Steps in the CSTA Sport Tourism Roadmap, a tool designed for the sport tourism industry that helps to guide the process for bidding and hosting.
Check out the Preliminary Event Schedule where the professional development content will be delivered through three different formats including:
Plenary –Typically at one of the meals during SEC, a speaker and topic that is relevant and engaging to all delegates will be featured. The presentation will be a minimum of 20 minutes and maximum of 30 minutes with up to 5 minutes for questions from the floor. Plenary speakers are provided with complimentary registration and may attend all other SEC sessions.
Panel –These group discussions will be facilitated by a moderator and can include up to four other panel members. These sessions can be 60-75 minutes in duration and should allow time for questions from the floor to engage and encourage two-way communication.
Xperiential Huddle – A more user-driven form of information sharing and learning, Xperiential Huddle will feature several topics to choose from, each facilitated by a leader from the sport tourism sector. Participants spend 20-25 minutes at each X-shaped pod of 24 people. Using a mix of presentation, problem solving and group discussion, participants will learn from the facilitator and each other.
