2017 SMAANZ Conference Location Announced
SMAANZ are delighted to announce Griffith University as the successful applicant to host to the 2017 SMAANZ Conference. The Gold Coast will be the location for the conference, proposed to be held from Wednesday November 29 to Friday December 1, 2017.
The preliminary conference theme is: Places, Events and Sport: Going for Gold.
The conference will run five months prior to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018), of which Griffith University is a proud Official Partner. As well as the theme being reflected in the workshops and selection of keynotes, the event theme will be a focus of the ‘Fusion Day’ (proposed Academic and Industry Engagement event on Day 1), incorporating major events related issues and sport management trends.
The conference activities will be hosted across the Griffith University campus and ‘Mantra on View’ Hotel. Griffith University will host the conference opening and the welcome function.
The SMAANZ board thanks Dr Popi Sotiriadou and the organising team at Griffith for their bid, and look forward to working with them on a successful 2017 conference.
