Pacific Games Impact Symposium 2019

Join a two-day research symposium to unpack the impact of the Samoa 2019 Pacific Games.

For two weeks in July, Samoa delivered what has been dubbed the ‘Miracle Games’ and hosted 24 countries featuring over 5000 athletes and officials and sport competition across 26 sports.

This research symposium will explore the preliminary findings of a research project assessing the Socio-economic impacts of the Samoa 2019 Pacific Games funded by The University of the South Pacific and the Ministry of Education, Sports and Culture in Samoa.

The program will explore the social, cultural, economic and environmental impacts of the Games presenting data collected during a Games-time survey of visitors and residents and date gathered from the 24 participating countries, Games Organising Committee and the Government of Samoa.

  • Date:        Thursday 28 & Friday 20 November 2019
  • Time:       9:30am – 4:30pm
  • Venue:     TBC

The research symposium is open to government, sport organisations and civil society representatives with an interest in the specific impacts of the Samoa 2019 Pacific Games, the Games legacies for the people of Samoa, and the key learnings for future hosts of the Pacific Games.

Online registration is open until Friday 15th November 2019 and attendance at the research symposium is free.
