EASM postponed to 2021

The European Association for Sport Management (EASM) Board and the Local Organising Committee (LOC) of the 2020 EASM conference in London have taken the decision to postpone the EASM conference until September 2021.

In light of recent developments, the decision has been reached that the EASM Conference 2020 in London will not take place this year. EASM are very grateful for the solidarity that has been shown by all its members and now look forward to the revised conferences which will be held in London 2021, Innsbruck 2022 and Belfast 2023.

Though the EASM community will not be able to assemble in the typical way, they will continue to provide platforms for knowledge creation and dissemination and networking opportunities, including complimentary virtual workshops and thematic sessions. They invite researchers to submit their work by 17 April 2020, with further details on the timing and format of virtual workshops to follow shortly.

For students, this decision does mean that the EASM Student Seminar will not take place, however EASM have been able to postpone the EASM Summer School to 12-16 August 2020. For PhD students, the EASM Board will be exploring the opportunities and solutions related to the PhD student seminar and will communicate this in due course. 

The EASM Board and the London LOC would like to take this opportunity to once again thank the EASM family for its continued understanding and support and most importantly to wish everyone well during this challenging time.
