Global Sustainable Sport becomes official sustainability partner of Mass Participation World Conference (MPW23)

Registrations opened today for the event which will take place at the stunning Mai House Saigon Hotel in the bustling heart of District 3, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam from 7 to 9 December.

With the theme of “Futureproofing from the grassroots up,” this year’s event will include an exciting new addition to the program: the inclusion of content and speakers from grassroots sports.

MPW believes there are many commonalities including managing outdoor venues and the increasing challenges of climate change, similar business models, reliance on volunteers, creating a huge impact on the health and wellbeing of citizens as well as building and engaging with communities.

A key focus of MPW23 is to again create a platform that facilitates conversation and interaction. The bulk of sessions will be presentation free zones with a number of new interactive formats.

The hugely popular MPW Innovation Spotlight presented by GSIC powered by Microsoft, will again be a feature of the program as a showcase of new innovations that have the potential to help future-proof the industry. There will also be an Expo and a number of networking activities.

Delegates will have the opportunity stay on to participate in or watch the Techcombank Ho Chi Minh City International Marathon on 10 December. MPW23 is also part of Ho Chi Minh City Tourism Week – a wonderful opportunity to learn about and experience so many elements of the amazing city and its culture.

MPW is delighted to partner with Sunrise Events Viet Nam (SEV), the premier Mass Participation event organiser in the country with a portfolio including leading marathons and IRONMAN 70.3 events.

Early bird registration at USD199 closes on 10 November. Program, speakers, registration, accommodation and other details are available here.

As an official event partner GSS is delighted to be able to offer you a USD50 discount on your delegate fee. Simply use MPW2350 at checkout
