SportAccord 2009 will be taking place in Denver, moving to North America for the first time. The seventh addition of SportAccord is being held March 23-27 at the Hyatt Regency Denver, Colorado Convention Centre.
One of the highlights of SportAccord 2008 was the announcement by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) of the official Candidate Cities to host the 2016 Summer Olympic Games. The seventh addition of SportAccord in Denver will bring delegations together with representatives from the sporting movement ahead of the 2016 host city announcement in October 2009.
Anna Hellmann, general manager of SportAccord, said in a press release, “Denver will be an exciting venue for SportAccord 2009. When I visited Denver I was very impressed by the centralized location and quality of all venues. I am sure our delegates will be very pleased with the city”.
