Rugby Expo closes its doors for the final time at twickenham in new move to the ricoh arena for 2016
Rugby Expo, the largest B2B conference and exhibition for the global rugby industry, returned to Twickenham stadium on November 26-27 with a host of leading speakers and key influencers from across the rugby union landscape in attendance, as the attention shifted towards the future of the sport in the aftermath of the Rugby World Cup.
Taking place at the international venue for the fifth consecutive year, the move to a Thursday/Friday event saw record numbers of grass roots and community clubs in attendance; the continued support from Premiership Rugby, the RFU and the Rugby Players’ Association guaranteed the attendance of representatives from pro clubs and the sport’s organising bodies and following the success of last year, Rugby Expo again hosted the Home Unions Agents Seminar, with over 160 players’ agents, stakeholders and management staff given full access to the two day event.
As part of the future plans for the event, it was announced that from 2016, Rugby Expo would be moving to the Ricoh Arena in a new long term partnership with Wasps Rugby Club. The move aims to support and facilitate the growth and reach of the event, at a venue that is fast becoming the second home for the sport.
