PR N°10/2014 WISE – « Work In Sports Exhibition » Beaulieu Lausanne (SUI), 6 – 7 May 2015

The second edition of WISE, the International Convention for Careers in Sports, set for 6 – 7 May 2015

Lausanne, Switzerland, September 2, 2014 – SINERGI Sports Consulting and MCH Beaulieu Lausanne SA are pleased to announce the second edition of « WISE – Work In Sports Exhibition » to be held once again at Beaulieu Lausanne in Switzerland on May 6-7, 2015.

After a successful first edition having gathered, over the two days, ca. 900 participants from 40 countries, 40 exhibitors, 100 speakers and 3 ambassadors, the second step is to become an annual event and the only convention offering an international platform for career development in the sports industry.

Bringing together leading personalities of the sport’s world presenting the various sport’s professions, their market evolution, trends and related educational systems has proved to be a key area of interest and development. Therefore, in 2015, the Forum programme will focus once again on the key theme of career management including a large panel of interdisciplinary conferences, workshops and round tables discussions with sport’s professionals of different backgrounds.

While the high quality of the Forum programme was the definite highlight of the 2014 WISE convention, a special emphasis will be added next year onto the animation’s corner. The idea is really to propose interactive and networking sessions to all participants, including but not limited to breakfasts and questions’ sessions with keynote speakers, career speed dating, simulations of sport’s professions with real “actors”, live assessments or recruitments, career-related live trainings (leadership, group motivation, speaking in public, etc.) and many others.

« WISE – Work In Sports Exhibition » provides a unique opportunity to meet leading figures from across the professional sport’s world, whilst facilitating important networking openings that will ultimately accelerate the growth and development of sport’s career management », said Mr. Giancarlo Sergi, Exhibition Director.

The first partner having renewed the partnership for this second edition of WISE is the media partner Sportcal.

WISE offers a 360° sharing platform to leaders of today and tomorrow, as well as active and former athletes entering the business world.
