29 APRIL 2013


thinkrelativity today announced that an agreement had been reached with the Sports Club Management Expo, to provide sponsorship, event support and funding for the 2013 Sports Club Management Expo.

The expo is Australia's largest grass roots sporting conference and expo, attended by hundreds of grass roots clubs, state bodies, national bodies, sports businesses, PE teachers, local councils, and government. In 2012, the inaugural Sydney event had over 300 sports clubs in attendance from sports such as Soccer and Netball, to sports such as Dragon Boating and Boxing. Speakers included NSW Minister for Sport Graham Annesley, Professor Keith Lyons and John Reid of the Australia Drug Foundation, and exhibitors included technology companies such as Mobipost, sports businesses such as Wholesale Trophies, tertiary education providers such as ACPE and UTS, state sporting bodies and retail partners such as Coca-Cola.

"In 2012, thinkrelativity provided all the support necessary to set up the Sports CLub Management Expo, from providing staff to help run the conference, to providing funding to assist SCME in hiring the venue and conference equipment", said Alex Mednis, Director, thinkrelativity. "It was a significant investment for us, and one that paves the way for future conferences".

"In 2013, thinkrelativity has agreed to reprise it's role as major sponsor, but the focus of the funding this year will be to help SCME become self-sustaining so it can stand on it's own two feet.

"It's a great initiative, and something that thinkrelativity is proud to support. Across New South Wales and Victoria there are over 20,000 grass roots clubs that are active every week. And they deserve support, and a forum to get information and meet with businesses that can help them out," Mr Mednis said.

More information regarding SCME 2013 will be available in the coming weeks. The event is set to be held in Melbourne in late 2013, and information will be posted online at
