Tropical 7s On Display at World Rugby’s ConfEx in London


LONDON, ENGLAND, 16 NOVEMBER 2016 – The TROPICAL 7s team found themselves front and centre of the international rugby community the past 2 days on the occasion of World Rugby’s ConfEx in London – bringing further exposure to the TROPICAL 7s tournament to take place for the first time over Easter 2017 in Orlando, Florida USA.

With a full exhibit stand located in the heart of the exhibition area, TROPICAL 7s became one of the bright focal points during the gathering of the world’s industry leaders in rugby.

The TROPICAL 7s team met with and introduced the event to some of the world’s top industry executives and representatives from many of the world’s top rugby unions and organisations, gaining further support and interest from the world of rugby – including World Rugby CEO Brett Gosper who admired the stand and expressed his desire for rugby to have more events like this.

“Tropical 7s is the kind of event that does nothing but benefit our rugby community,” said USA Rugby CEO Dan Payne in showing his support. “Rugby is in a growth phase both internationally and in the USA.  Tropical 7s  illustrates the growing interest in our sport and I expect it will be a great addition to the growing calendar of international events offered in the United States.”

“Being at World Rugby’s ConfEx these past few days has been a huge success,” TROPICAL 7s Executive Director John Siner said today. “You can see the interest from all those that we spoke to from around the world. The USA is a very attractive market and a new destination for the community, and Tropical 7s will be able to offer a fantastic experience as the sport of rugby 7s continues to expland internationally.”

TROPICAL 7s is now open for registration and invites team from all around the world to find out more information and sign up on the website
