On a daily basis, Laren works on the interface between high-performance sport and the products and services that support athletes and coaches to consistently perform at an elite level, so he is keenly anticipating the content of this year’s conference. Laren says, “the NASSM Conference is an excellent opportunity to keep up to date with the issues affecting our clients.”

“I always find the conversations stimulated by the sessions so valuable. The content is so well researched, and the presenters are coming from all over the globe to speak on topics that interest and affect us all.”

NASSM is actively involved in supporting and assisting professionals working in the fields of sport, leisure and recreation. Their purpose is to promote, stimulate, and encourage study, research, scholarly writing, and professional development in sport management – both theoretical and applied aspects.

The 2018 Annual NASSM Conference will be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with event organizers expecting more than 500 people to attend. The annual conference is a forum for sport management faculty, students and practitioners to share current research, industry best practices, and teaching innovations. It also provides opportunities for professional networking.

The organization was established to keep professionals up-to-date with the latest information affecting sport marketing, future directions in management, employment perspectives, management competencies, leadership, sport and the law, personnel management, facility management, organizational structures, fund raising, and conflict resolution.

The 2018 conference tackles topics including; nationalism in broadcasting for major sporting events, the future of specific leagues, the challenges facing a wheelchair specific competition, exploring the effects of ambush marketing on sport, the impact of distance in spectator motivation and the number of volunteers in sport compared to non-sport organizations.

The NASSM Conference targets sport management faculty, students and practitioners from the United States and Canada but also welcomes international attendees from around the world.
