ISC was founded in Zurich, Switzerland in 2009 by Nigel and Magdalena Fletcher who combined their professional experience in business and sport to create, develop and nurture ISC as a leading brand in the world of business of sport.
CEO Nigel Fletcher believed the sports industry needed something better. He adapted both the offering and positioning of ISC over time. 13 years later the International Sports Convention is one of the leading brands in the provision of B2B and B2C services in the business of sport.
The ISC mantra of innovation and a long term vision is always constant. Once a goal has been achieved, there are other goals to be realised. ISC never stands still in providing real value to both organisations and individuals in the business of sport.
Whether it’s engaging content, intelligence and insight, networking, shaping policy or industry trends, ISC is the meeting place for the business of sport.
In the decade since the first event in 2009, the International Sports Convention has held events in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Geneva, Switzerland and in 2022 ISC was held at the most progressive sporting and entertainment venue in Europe – the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
ISC has always covered the entire sports industry and with some exciting changes for the 2024 edition this will be the case again. ISC is the meeting place for sport business.
1500 delegates, 100 plus speakers, 7 sport business conferences over 2 days and plenty of networking and business opportunities. March 20 – 21, 2024.
ISC development and future begins with the needs, requirements and opportunities of those working in the global sports industry. How we shape the future of ISC will depend on the feedback we receive and this will formulate ISC direction for the next 10 years. So please do contact us as we value your input in the direction ISC should take in the future.
