WSDE 2011 will once again play host to the ground-breaking International Sport Tourism Conference. The programme will have a strong focus on specialist Sport Tourism knowledge, analysis and market leader insights and will provide thought provoking and invigorating content.

This blockbuster conference will feature a prestigious line-up of leading experts and decision makers in sporting events and Sport Tourism and will govern a blue-chip audience as well as considerable global media attention.

National, Regional or City Tourist Boards with a Sport Tourism portfolio and hotels and resorts offering sporting facilities are urged to participate in this must attend industry gathering. With the exponential growth of Activity or “Participation Vacations” (holidays with an activity attached- i.e. golf, tennis, adventure, diving, alpine) triggered by an increasingly “sportified” society, WSDE Research has revealed that the travel industry’s fastest growing sector will post record profits and contribute an astonishing 14% of overall travel and tourism receipts by the end of the year. At a time when most traditional tourism trends are in decline, Sport Tourism continues to flourish and is set to grow exponentially in the next decade.
