The Importance of Targeting Key Cohorts to Reactivate the Community

Encouraging people back – the crucial question that people are debating, how to target specific cohorts to attract them back to community sport, back into facilities and to stay active.

The NSC Forums will have a strong focus this year on how to engage and what research and vehicles are available to identify and encourage the targeting of specific cohorts.

Prof. Alfonso Jimenez, Chief Research & Innovation Officer, Ingesport-GO fit (Spain) will present by video address explaining what Europe is embracing through their pan-European Active Alliance. His organisation, Ingesport-GO fit has quantified the social and economic benefits of physical activity to local communities and will focus on key insights and learnings.

James Ellender is Chief Executive Officer of ActiveXchange who provide access to state and national sports organisations, all local government and state departments to an amazing data-lake of community information surrounding participation and the health data benefits of participation. James will share his insights at the Forums with us.

Dean Brostek, Managing Director of The Kinetica Group has worked with NSO’s and SSA’s to identify participation patterns at a suburb level, allowing facilities, sport and government to appreciate the drivers for participation and the most appropriate way to connect with specific cohorts.

As sport returns to our communities, live attendance is expected to be high and current registration bookings are demonstrating this, so register now to not miss out. Group discounts also available!
