Women in focus at Asia Pacific Sport conference

Golf Australia will send delegates to the Asia Pacific World Sport and Women Conference 2012 in Melbourne which looks at the world s most popular sports and provides a global platform to explore how and why women consume sport. As an endorsing partner, Golf Australia CEO Stephen Pitt said the conference had a number of benefits. Golf Australia is pleased to endorse the Asia Pacific World Sport and Women Conference. We think it is a terrific initiative and one that will deliver some key benefits to a number of sports including golf,” Pitt said. “Whilst we have over 100,000 female members, we see great potential to increase the number of females involved in golf and we are always enthusiastic to explore new ways to connect with existing and potential female golfers,” he added. The conference focusses on learning how to increase female consumption from grassroots participation and international representation to the boardroom and stadia across the Asia Pacific Region and beyond. The conference will feature football as the platform that reaches the greatest number of women and girls globally, but will also draw on the experiences of sports as diverse as Touch, Bowls, Swimming and others to help communities, governments, businesses and sporting bodies engage with women and girls.
