It gives me great pleasure to invite you to the 23rd EASM Conference held in the impressive Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland from 9 to 12 September 2015. We have designed an exciting programme centred on the conference theme of Sport Management in the Digital Age, which reflects the reality of a fast-paced interconnected world, where professional and global communities are linked at the touch of a button, where live sporting events are streamed to our mobile phones and where teams and athletes can interact instantly with their fans irrespective of location. For the sports manager, the brave new digital world poses questions about what sport is and how it is accessed, offers opportunities to engage fans in exciting new ways and reveals challenges to accessing consumers in an increasingly fragmented media landscape.
A vibrant landscape of stunning beauty, a profound cultural and sporting heritage, and the European home of global technology firms Google, Microsoft and Facebook make Dublin the perfect location for the 23rd EASM Conference. Located between Europe and America, Ireland is easily accessible and offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere as well as opportunities to explore one of the best travel destinations in the world.
