ASMA Conference 2018

Baylor Sport Management was proud to host the 2018 Applied Sport Management Association Conference, the first academic conference hosted in program history.

Begun in 2009, ASMA aims to bring together scholars in sport and practitioners in the sport industry. The conference provides an environment where young scholars and professionals can foster relationships and conversations to further the field of sport management. In additon to the traditional conference programming which has focused primarily on the academics in sport, Baylor SMA will be adding a number of panels aimed to focus on practical application in the area of sport. Panels will feature practitioners from a variety of areas in the sport industry. 

Waco's central location to both numerous Sport Management academic programs and a variety of collegiate and professional athletic programs made it a perfect choice for such a conference as this.
