NSC Launches 2022 Event With Focus On Next Decade

The National Sports & Physical Activity Convention (NSC) has detailed the launch of the 2022 convention, set to have a focus on Australian sport’s vision for the industry in the lead up to the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The NSC22 will be held in Melbourne from 11-13 July, bringing together thought leaders from around the sports industry over the two-day conference program filled with four Global/CEO Thought Leader Sessions.

The sessions will include:

  • Sustainability and Climate Change Impact on Sport and Sports Opportunity to Impact on Climate Change – What Can We Change for Brisbane 2032
  • The Move Away from Win at All Costs to Valuing Integrity, Good Governance and Culture
  • How Do We Activate the Community to be More Interested In Sport and Active Recreation Ready for 2032
  • A Blueprint for the Next Decade – Redefining and Leveraging Major Sporting Events to Benefit Community Participation

Outside of these four sessions, the NSC22 will host five Big Issues Keynote Sessions, including:

  • The Participation Agenda – Who Should Be Connecting Exercise and Fitness with Play, Recreation and Community Sport
  • Active Cities and Spaces to Generate an Active Nation Ready for Brisbane 2032
  • The Importance of a Children and Young People’s Agenda
  • Re-imagining Culture and Leadership in the Sports Industry
  • Innovative Environments to Activate Community Sport and Recreation

The organisation plans for the 2022 Conference to bring in over 600 sporting delegates at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, with eight hours of networking opportunities to be held at the event.

The conference was most recently held from 11 November – 9 December 2021 in a hybrid format with a mix of online keynote sessions, over 40 hours of on-demand workshops and the NSC Oration in person at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

In an interview with Ministry of Sport last year ahead of the 2021 edition, NSC founder and content curator, Martin Sheppard, discuss the challenges in delivering the event and the role of major sports conventions.

“We’ve been committed to trying to change the conversations in the industry for a number of years and how we do that is we go and talk to our collaborators and key thought leaders and get them to address the key challenges and issues,” Sheppard told Ministry of Sport.

“When the community of sport keep coming and knocking on the door saying we need it more than anything, we listen to people and try and put an agenda together to satisfy what they think the industry needs…

“The conversation we start this year will be continued in July next year (for NSC 2022) with a focus on the blueprint for the next decade and what we need to do.

“We’ve had a look at 10 different countries approach to strategies of sport, and we’ve taken all the commonalities that influence success and put them into a blueprint,” he said in the interview in October last year.
