Birkbeck is Partner for the 6th International Sport Symposium, Buenos Aires

This year’s Symposium will take place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, during the 125th IOC session, where the new IOC President will be elected.

Birkbeck’s Sport Business Centre, a full Academic Partner, hosted the 5th Symposium last year, during the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The aim of the symposium is to generate top quality contents for business and sports media interested in new management trends.

Since Turin 2006 it has become a tradition for Olympic scholars to meet at this symposium during the Olympic Games, the Youth Olympic Games and now an IOC session, where the organisers invite you to present your latest Olympic related(economic/management) research.

The Symposium will be organized by Prof. Holger Preuss and Prof. Gerardo Bielons who are calling for those interested to present at the forum to send their abstracts by the end of February.

The 6th International Sport Business Symposium calls for research papers directly related to the business of the Olympic Games; the upcoming 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games, as well as prior and future Olympic, Youth, and Paralympic Games. Papers about Olympic media, legacy, tourism, consumers, organizations, finance, economics, environment, Paralympics, politics and other Olympic-related topics are welcome. The official language for abstracts and the Symposium is English.
