The 2018 edition of SportAccord took place in the Centara Grand Hotel and Bangkok Convention Center at Central World from the 15th till today.

It has been an edition with an agenda even more busy than usual due to the new Olympic tasks and conferences: on behalf of World Skate, President Sabatino Aracu attended the event together with Roberto Marotta - Secretary General, Laura Morandi - Vice Secretary General, ad Gary Ream - Skateboarding Chairman.

In addition to the Annual Assemblies of ASOIF, GAISF and IWGA and all the official meetings, it was also the networking opportunity that as usual made SportAccord worth attending.

Panamerican Games 2019: the meeting reinforced the strong alliance looking forward to Lima.

World Beach Games: Skateboarding has been confirmed in the programme of the next year Beach Games edition that will be held in San Diego. The event, directly organized by the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC), will see the participation of 15 sports national delegations from all over the world.

Urban Games: in 2019 the very first edition will take place and the expectations are very high. 20 International Federations and 50 cities attended the meetings lead by Sabatino Aracu, Urban Games Commission Chairman. Only 8 sports will be part of the 2019 Programme, but the interest is raising day by day and even IOC members and the IOC Sport Director Kit McConnell attended the workshop together with the Olympic Channel representatives showing a great interest on the IOC side.
