The conference, which is the first of its kind to be organised during the Rugby World Cup, will take place on 30 September at London’s Barbican Hall. It will bring together sports professionals, entrepreneurs and business leaders for a day of inspirational talks from a panel of guest speakers from the world of rugby and business.
The line-up of speakers includes Sir Clive Woodward OBE, former Rugby Union player, England coach and director at the British Olympic Association; Brett Gosper, CEO of World Rugby; and Agustín Pichot, former captain of the Argentina rugby team.
Simon Hambley, Crown’s director of Live, said: "We’re extremely honoured to be producing the inaugural WIN Rugby World Conference, particularly as this came as a referral from the on-site team at the Barbican, with whom we’ve worked previously, which is testament to the great work we do here at Crown.
"We look forward to working with the Barbican and Play Patagonia to make the conference a great success for them, creating an enriched and engaging environment that gives them the platform for knowledge sharing, and a peer-to-peer networking opportunity for delegates."
