Conference for High-Performance Sports Centers

2018-09-13
The event’s main goal was to train the centers’ technical staff, namely for an internationalization process.

The conference was made up of 12 thematic panels and ran from September 18th to the 20th, in the auditorium of the Rio Maior High-Performance Center (HPC). The topics were selected with the purpose of training the technical staff of the national HPCs and promoting both sharing experiences and networking. The thematic panels were moderated by specialized lecturers.

Market Access was invited by the organization to include a lecturer for the internationalization theme, which was presented on the conference’s first day. The main goal was to outline and give some guidance about the variables to take into account in the definition and implementation of an internationalization process. In addition to the centers’ staff, all sports entities and federations from Portugal were invited.

As we have previously noted, Market Access has been working in an international project with the Portuguese Sports Foundation in order to promote national High-Performance Centers overseas.
