Since 2001, the AISTS has been organising SEMOS (Sport Event Management and Organisation Seminar). The next edition of AISTS SEMOS will take place in October 2017 and registration is now open.
The AISTS SEMOS module offers an overview of the key tasks that sports managers need to successfully plan, communicate and operate when organising sport events, providing a 360° view and behind the scenes look at the mechanics of sport events.
Bringing together leaders of International Sport Federations and other experts of the AISTS network, including the International Olympic Committee and sport event organisers, AISTS SEMOS is both pertinent and practical, and recognises the increased expectations of spectators, media and sponsors at major events.
I thoroughly recommend the programme as an excellent way to gain valuable insight into the current state of play across a range of critical areas in the business of sport at large. Additionally, for anyone involved in event management, the importance of simply learning before doing cannot be underestimated. SEMOS is one excellent way participants can begin to fill the knowledge gaps so evident in poorly run events.
