CISA is an open forum for the discussion sport-related issues in Africa. It has each year, since 2007, brought together international and African sports professionals in an African city.

As such, it affords various stakeholders the opportunity to meet and network with sports decision makers in Africa, and thus to avail themselves of the benefits of an emerging market.
