With the International Women’s Day on Sunday, March 8th, The International Sports Convention is pleased to announce a record number of Women speakers for the ISC London 2020 edition taking place on June 17-18, 2020


Nigel Fletcher, CEO of the International Sports Convention: “The International Sports Convention will take place in just over 3 months’ time and we have a real focus in bringing in worldwide leaders and experts across the Sports Business Industry. It’s a huge year for global sporting events – the Olympic Games in Tokyo and UEFA Euro 2020 in multiple cities. Ensuring diversity within the sports business industry is an ongoing and constant development.  ISC has always been an inclusive event in many ways. Despite the fact we have announced a record number of women speakers for ISC London 2020 in the lead up to International Women’s day, there is still a lot more I, ISC and the industry need to do and I am under no illusion. There is still a very significant lack of BAME representatives and Women speakers do not makeup half of the speakers count for ISC London 2020 (at present it’s 22%). Therefore I am pleased to announce a 5-year plan that by 2025, that at least 50% of our speakers are women. We will, of course, need the sports business industry to assist us but that is our goal and promise for 2025 and we will now work towards that“.
