The Professional Players Federation national conference

The Professional Players Federation (PPF) represents the players and athletes across UK sport, and October sees the return of the successful national conference for its second instalment.


The Professional Players Federation national conference will target current and former professional athletes as well as all those in the supporting industries, to discuss and debate the topical issues facing today’s sportsmen and women.

The event will provide an incredible networking opportunity for everyone involved with those people at the forefront of UK sport – the players and athletes, and the conference programme will offer an in depth understanding of the challenges facing these professional sportspeople. It will offer a platform to discuss the many positive opportunities players and athletes provide for sports, media, brands, sponsors, government agencies and the charity sector, as well as how we address the potential pitfalls.

The conference aims to attract a large number of delegates, with an anticipated audience of more than 180, and will take place at the RHS Lawrence Halls in Westminster, London.

Attendees will be senior makers associated with the athletes at the forefront of UK sport and will come from a range of organisations including, from the 2010 event:

  • Professional player associations – the PFA, PCA, RPA, LMA and World Snooker
  • National sporting bodies – the FA, RFU, ECB and PGA
  • Sports clubs
  • Agents and agencies
  • CSR budget holders and charities
  • Brands and sponsors
  • Professional services practitioners
  • Media
