To develop both the development and business of Sport it is vital to ensure good governance and integrity across global sport and, in particular, to promote the debate and discussion, not only on what is working, but also on what is not. We have teamed up with SIGA – who are experts in this field and, together, we will be working on finalizing a strong, diverse and interesting programme for The Sports Integrity and Governance Conference.

SIGA Chairman Franco Frattini said:SIGA’s partnership with ISC to shape and deliver ‘The Sport Integrity and Governance Conference’ agenda acknowledges SIGA’s global leadership and convening power in this field. The multi-stakeholder nature of our organisation is based on the principle of sound partnership. It is by working together to find solutions to tackle the mounting governance and integrity challenges facing sport that we can restore its reputation. We are delighted to team up with ISC 2018”.

SIGA CEO, Emanuel Macedo de Medeiros, said: “SIGA is moving forward at a fast pace – as we said we would. Just one week ago, we announced a major partnership in America. Today, we are proud of announcing another major cooperation agreement with our valued partner, the ISC.
