Rugby Expo 2018

18th April 2018

Taking place on Wednesday 18 April 2018..

Rugby Expo, the biggest business-to-business event for the sport, is returning to the Ricoh Arena with a new format designed to further support and engage those from the professional and community game.

The conference and exhibition will be combined into one extended day, providing attendees with 12+ hours packed with high-level discussion and debate covering both codes of the sport, interactive coaching content, partner meetings and a busy exhibition showcasing the latest rugby-focused products and services.

Following on from previous years, Rugby Expo will once again be split in two parts; the morning/afternoon will be focused on the professional game, before attention switches to community club rugby, with this year’s event running into the evening to support those attending from the grass roots game.

Rugby Expo has also moved to Hall 3, a larger exhibition hall with a new 102m² interactive area at the heart of the exhibition floor, which will facilitate a series of technical and practical coaching demonstrations from some of the very best coaches in the game.

This has been designed to allow community game coaches and volunteers to get the best access they can to the very best coaches, to support their development and allow them to take away unrivalled insight and knowledge transfer from the pro game to the community game.

The event also continues to be well-supported by the sport’s governing bodies including Premiership Rugby, the RFU and RFL, as well as extending its close working partnership with the Ricoh Arena and senior management team at Aviva Premiership home side, Wasps. Find out more here.
