Play the Game 2013 to return in October

The world communication conference Play the Game 2013 returns for the eighth time in October.

The event opens its doors to stakeholders in sport to discuss essential issues in world sport.

Xperiologist, Ian Nutall, is on the programming committee of Play the Game 2013 which takes place at the Helnan Marselis Hotel, Aarhus, Denmark on 28th to 31st of October.

“I am honoured to be supporting such an important meeting that is getting to the heart of the key issues facing sport. It’s fantastic to see the event attract so many people from around the world, outlining the necessity for the conference and I’m proud to be representing Xperiology”.

About the conference

Since 2007, the Play the Game conferences have been held abroad in cooperation with local partners, but this year Play the Game decided to take the conference back home to Denmark with over 300 experts and stakeholders expecting to attend the event.

The conference will be a forum for discussion of both current essential issues and a peek into the future of world sport titled, ‘stepping up for democracy in sport’.

Six main themes have been chosen for this year’s conference,

  • Match fixing: Fair game for gangsters?
  • Sports reforms: Fact or phantom?
  • The anti-doping dilemma: Saving sport, sacrificing athletes?
  • Recreational sport: A lost cause for sports organisations?
  • Sports facilities: Who are we building for?
  • From Russia to Rio: Power games or people’s games?
