The inaugural Global Athletics Conference

14th and 15th November 2014

The Global Athletics Conference will be an annual platform for the world’s most experienced athletics minds to share their knowledge and insights with African stakeholders to build capacity and improve the standard of athletics as a part of building the foundation to develop world class athletes, events and businesses.

How do you attract sponsors to events? How do you put together a team to manage an new race? How does one raise the performance bar? These are just some of the questions that will be answered at the inaugural GAC 2014.

Endorsed by KwaZulu-Natal Athletics, the umbrella body for athletics in the province, and organized by Newton Sports Agency, the conference will bring together coaches, administrators and track and field stakeholders from across the world to empower the African athletics community to deliver financially sustainable and world class athletics events. It will raise awareness of the trends and direction of international athletics and provides a platform for networking and sharing.

Held from 14-15 November in Durban, South Africa, it will highlight the themes of performance, business, sponsorship, marketing and administration. It will help shape the future direction of athletics and ensure that we equip our stakeholders to remain innovative and relevant in the modern and dynamic athletics environment.

GAC will host several international speakers and expert panelists. Seats are limited so sign up today and play your part in taking the sport to a whole new level.
