SportAccord 2019

SportAccord is the world's premier sport and business summit, focused on driving positive change internationally and dedicated to engaging and connecting international sports federations, rights holders, organising committees of various major sports events including Olympic games, host cities, media, businesses and other organisations involved in the development of sport.

The Gold Coast and Queensland are looking forward to hosting the key decision-makers in international sport in May 2019 and showcasing why Queensland is a leading world-class major events destination.

Queensland... where life is "beautiful one day, perfect the next".

While you're visiting the Gold Coast for SportAccord 2019, we invite you to bring your family and friends to explore the rest of Queensland, where experiences abound and your perfect next adventure awaits.

That could be basking in the Gold Coast's breezy beach culture and meeting the friendly lifeguards - maybe even learning to surf, stand-up paddling or watching a stunning sunset.


Or it could be sailing, flying or diving your way around the Great Barrier Reef, one of the world's greatest natural wonders, comprising 3,000 separate reefs, 900 islands and coral cays and home to abundant marine life.

Or chartering a yacht around the Whitsunday Islands, being your own captain and crew, and dropping anchor where and when you please... maybe in a pristine cove with only sea turtles for company.


Queensland will inspire you, revive you, invigorate you and place you firmly under its spell.


Come and see why the Gold Coast, Queensland is the perfect next world-class events destination

Its enviable natural environment has long drawn tourists and its proven strength in hosting successful major sporting events has seen the Gold Coast, and the State of Queensland more broadly, become one of the world's premier sports and major events destinations.

With an average of 300 days of sunshine annually, cutting-edge high-performance training and events facilities, world-renowned tourism experiences and infrastructure, and international major event delivery and leveraging capability, it’s no surprise that National and International Federations, rights holders, governing bodies, promoters, teams and individual athletes are increasingly choosing Queensland to host their next major event or training camp, or relocating their permanent training base or business headquarters to Queensland.

SportAccord 2019 will provide the perfect opportunity for National and International Federations, rights holders, governing bodies and promoters to experience all that the Gold Coast and Queensland has to offer.
