Sport Events Congress is back as an in-person event in 2022 on March 22-23-24 in Edmonton.

Sport Tourism Canada is pleased to partner again with Edmonton Events, following the cancellation of the 2020 edition of Sport Events Congress due to the global pandemic.

As the leader of the $7.4 billion sport tourism sector, Sport Tourism Canada has staged Sport Events Congress since 2001. It draws together all segments of Canada’s sport tourism industry leaders including destination tourism professionals, sport events rights holders, event management firms, hoteliers, the education sector and elected officials.

SEC22 promises to be everything you know and love about Congress – interactive, educational, opportunities for business-to-business networking, evening social events (including an Edmonton Oilers NHL match-up at Rogers Place), and plenty of fun!

Since the pandemic has significantly altered sport hosting in Canada, SEC22 programming will focus on recovery and supporting the sport tourism industry to bounce back. The 2022 edition of Sport Events Congress will provide the tools and expertise needed to fulfill this challenge and the event format will look a little different.

Sport Tourism Canada takes the safety of its event participants very seriously and is working closely with Edmonton Events and the host venues for SEC22 to have all recommended health protocols in place, along with some extra safety measures that we believe are necessary and prudent.

For now, save the date for SEC22 on March 22-23-24 and keep an eye on your inbox and our social media channels for the launch of registration in mid-December.
