The latest newsletter edition contains a special note from the EASM President Per-Göran Fahlström, who was in Bern with the EASM Board just last week. We have also gathered information about accommodation and special public transport benefits in Bern, introduce our latest partner, what is happening in Magglingen before the conference, and more valuable information that you need to know before the conference starts, to the newsletter.

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 Student 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.
Today, Dr. Tim Ströbel and Prof. Dr. Siegfried Nagel introduced the EASM Conference 2017 in Sport Institute event management seminar. Enthusiastic sport management master students of the University of Bern will participate in the social programme planning and some of them you will see at the conference as volunteers. We are proud to involve our students to the conference planning and awaiting their fresh ideas.
We are thrilled to announce our networking partnership with the Swiss Association of Sport Managers (ASMS). ASMS represents sport professionals from national and international sport entities, provides education, consultation, as well as seminars and symposia on various areas. We are looking forward to our partnership with ASMS and welcome all ASMS members to the EASM Conference in Bern! More information about ASMS is available here.
