EASM board members at vonRoll campus with Prof. Dr. Siegfried Nagel

With the 25th EASM Conference 2017 less than six months away, we had the privilege to have the members of EASM board over for a visit in Switzerland from Monday to Wednesday. During their visit, the board got a briefing about the progress of the Student and PhD Seminars’, and the EASM Conference 2017 preparations. On Monday, Dr. Hippolyt Kempf organised a tour around the seminars’ venue, the Swiss Federal Institute of Sports in Magglingen that ended to a generous dinner at the End of the World. On Wednesday, the board of EASM visited Bern and Prof. Dr. Siegfried Nagel introduced the conference’s main venue, the vonRoll campus area of the University of Bern. Following the positive feedback, that we received from our visitors, we are even more motivated to make the quarter centennial anniversary EASM conference a memorable experience for all our participants.

Welcome to the 25th EASM Conference 2017 in Bern and Magglingen, Switzerland

We are pleased to welcome you to the 25th annual conference of the European Association for Sport Management (EASM), to be held in Bern, Switzerland from 1 to 8 September 2017. The Institute of Sport Science of the University of Bern and the Swiss Federal Institute of Sport Magglingen are honoured to host this important sport management conference. Both partners play a key role in the development of sport management studies in Switzerland.

We will do our utmost to offer an interesting programme, establish network platforms to connect with colleagues and representatives from international sport organisations and companies as well as to provide opportunities to meet and make friends.

Switzerland, and Bern in particular, is not only well known for its rich cultural history and mountains, but also for cheese and chocolate. We will make sure all participants will have the opportunity to experience this “Swissness” and to enjoy such delights alongside the official programme of the conference.

We look forward to welcoming you in Bern and Magglingen in September 2017!
