Federation of Irish Sport Annual Conference
May 23, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Sport has never been more important for bringing people together but are we doing it well enough for those who need it most?
This year’s Annual Federation of Irish Sport Annual Conference will challenge us on areas of age, gender, race, social position, sexuality and more.
It may not be comfortable but it will be a critical opportunity to stay ahead in an ever more fractured world.
Sport for Business is delighted to help promote this year’s event and will be there on the day to stay on top of these key areas of sporting engagement with the world around us.
The conference will take place at Dublin City University on May 23rd and have a line-up of national and international speakers looking at the role of sport in building more inclusive communities.
They will explore what sport is doing both in Ireland and abroad to ensure real inclusivity taking in people with disability; ethnic minorities; the ageing population; the LGBT community and also looking to see how sport is encouraging more women and children to participate.
There will also be an examination of the importance of sport in building a strong cross border community in Ireland.
A full programme for the day will be confirmed over the coming weeks but tickets priced at only €35 each are available now at the site powered by fellow Sport for Business member Future Ticketing.
