The annual international sports convention brings representatives from the International Sports Federations affiliated to GAISF (General Association of International Sports Federations), ASOIF (Association of Summer Olympic International Federations) and AIOWF (Association of the International Olympic Winter Sports Federations), as well as the International Olympic Committee Executive Board, together with sponsors, bidding and host cities, architects, sports lawyers, broadcasters, games organizing committees, rights holders and other specialists to discuss the key issues facing the sports industry.

SportAccord encompasses the annual Congress and General Assemblies of GAISF, ASOIF and AIOWF, and gives the sports community an opportunity to come together to build relationships, exchange knowledge and develop ideas.

IOC President Jacques ROGGE, who will be honoured this year with the ISAF Beppe Croce Trophy, participated in the SportAccord Opening Ceremony, in the presence of the Prime Minister of the People's Republic of China, Jiabao WEN.
