SportAccord Convention announced today that EventScotland will once again be a Silver Partner of the event as part of a new three-year deal through to the 2016 event.

The eyes of the world will be on Scotland in 2014 with both the Commonwealth Games and The Ryder Cup taking place there within the space of three months. EventScotland has been involved in securing a number of major properties for 2015 which will ensure Scotland continues to be the perfect stage for sport events. These include:

o FIG World Gymnastics Championships; 
o IOF World Orienteering Championships; 
o IPC Swimming World Championships; 
o FEI European Eventing Championships; 
o EJU European Judo Championships; 
o The Open Championship
o RICOH Women's British Open

"SportAccord Convention provides us with an unrivalled platform to engage with our global event partners, and our partnership is hugely valuable to us," said Paul Bush OBE, Chief Operating Officer for EventScotland. "After our major events in 2014, Scotland will host three World and two European Championships next year and we are looking forward to discussing our future aspirations with colleagues at the Convention in April." 

"EventScotland are a great partner to work with, always fully immersing themselves in the Convention and the various networking opportunities," said Nis Hatt, Managing Director of SportAccord Convention. "They never fail to deliver an engaging exhibition stand that provides our delegates with a real taste of what Scotland has to offer. This year I'm sure will be no exception!"
