LAUSANNE, Switzerland - SportAccord Convention announced today that the 2014 edition of the Convention will take place at the Susesi Resort in Belek in the Antalya region of Turkey from April 6-11, 2014. The venue for the 12th annual edition of SportAccord Convention is one of the biggest and most modern congress centres in the Mediterranean. 

"We are proud to be able to provide a superb location for SportAccord Convention in Belek / Antalya next year," said Prof. Dr. U?ur Erdener, President of the SportAccord Convention 2014 Local Organising Committee, who is also President of Turkey's National Olympic Committee. "Not only are the facilities excellent, the great natural beauty of the coastal setting will ensure that the first SportAccord Convention in Turkey will be a very enjoyable one."

"Our event in Belek / Antalya next year will enjoy the advantage of having a top-flight congress centre adjoining the main Convention hotel," said Nis Hatt, Managing Director of SportAccord Convention. "The convenient set-up will be ideal for networking in a very comfortable atmosphere that's both spacious and easy to get around, and there will be more accommodation in other first-class resort hotels nearby."

Belek / Antalya is a developing sports centre and will host the 2013 WORLD Archery Championships, as well as the Turkish Airlines Ladies Golf Open on the Ladies European Tour. Last year the area welcomed the Turkish Airlines World Golf Final, Turkey's biggest-ever golf tournament.

Held in a different city every year, SportAccord Convention is a unique opportunity for international sporting leaders to engage with business, featuring a dynamic exhibition as well as the annual general meetings of governing bodies of world sport.
