Dunedin to host 54th World Congress of the International Sociology of Sport Association

Dunedin to host 54th World Congress of the International Sociology of Sport Association
June 25, 2016

Dunedin and the University of Otago will host the 54th World Congress of the International Sociology of Sport Association (ISSA), to be held in autumn 2019.

The Congress has never been held in New Zealand before and is expected to attract up to 300 delegates to the city.

The ISSA World Congress will be hosted by the University of Otago’s School of Physical Education, Sport and Exercise Science.

The conference bid was presented by Otago University Professor Steve Jackson to an ISSA meeting in the Hungarian capital of Budapest.

Professor Jackson explained “the result of this team effort really impressed the ISSA Executive Board, with an outstanding presentation and the high quality of detail provided in the bid.

“When it was announced Dunedin would host the 2019 conference the delegates were clearly thrilled – for many this will be their one opportunity to visit New Zealand.”

The bid was made with the support of Enterprise Dunedin and Tourism New Zealand (TNZ) using their Conference Assistance Programme (CAP).
