Dear EASM Friends,

Ulster University is delighted to welcome the participants of the 31st European Association for Sport Management Conference with the theme of ‘Forward Thinking in Sport Management: Inclusivity, Accessibility and Sustainability’. Ulster University is one of the longest-serving providers of sport education in Great Britain and Ireland and our School of Sport has a mission ‘to lead, inspire and shape the future of sport’. We are very much looking forward to sharing knowledge, networking and celebrating our common passion for Sport Management and its various fields at EASM 2023.

The conference will take place in the friendly and lively capital city of Belfast where you can expect a warm welcome, lots to see and do and an all-round great time. The city is recognised for exceeding visitor expectations winning the prestigious title of ‘World’s Best Conference Destination’ for the second year in a row thanks to our world-class conference experiences and the good mix of business and social opportunities available; we hope you feel in good hands for EASM 2023.

You will discover Northern Ireland to be a welcoming, inspirational and beautiful place to visit. We hope that delegates not only have an amazing EASM experience but leave feeling inspired, motivated and with plenty of new friends and memories. We cordially invite you to join us at EASM Belfast and look forward to seeing you in September 2023.

Warm Regards

Local Organising Committee
