This year SAPCA members will be returning to the impressive St George’s Park National Football Centre, near Burton upon Trent for the SAPCA Conference and Annual Dinner on 24 February 2020. The theme of the Conference is ‘Looking to the Future’ and will include a special session on the review of the Association’s own business strategy.

After an informal networking dinner on the Sunday evening, the Conference will begin with a bang on Monday morning when special keynote speaker Brad Burton, hailed as the UK’s number one motivational business speaker, starts the day with “Making Better Decisions. Faster. What Now?”.

The wide ranging Conference programme will include a variety of informative topics including Innovation in the Design of Sports Venues and Training Facilities, Innovation for Elite Sport Performance and Physical Activity, Football Facility Forum, Tennis Facility Forum, the Launch of Gen 2 Multi-Sports Areas, New Strategies for Export Growth and the new ‘Women in SAPCA Initiative’.

The event concludes with the SAPCA Annual Dinner, with excellent food and wine, sparkling company and prizes to be won, with entertaining host Mark Clemmit and special guest speaker Dean Saunders.

Members and guests have an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of SAPCA member companies through the SAPCA Awards. The list of finalists will be announced very soon, with the winners being revealed at the dinner.
