International Sport Facility Management Program returns in 2014
November 7, 2013

The MSAC Institute of Training's flagship three day International Sport Facility Management Program (ISFMP) is set to return in 2014.

Running from 12th to 14th March 2014, the seventh edition of the ISFMP will again provide delegates with the opportunity to acquire essential knowledge on the key principles of successful delivery of the operation of major sport and recreation facilities.

Designed for senior executives, governing body representatives, facility operators, venue managers, event managers, project managers, organising committee members, architects and builders, the practical and interactive program will take delegates inside the concept planning (idea), concept to reality (operational) and future planning (legacy planning).

During the three-day workshop, delegates discuss and develop practical tools relating to each phase of the planning and operation of major facilities and events.

In 2014, delegates will also be treated to an Australian Grand Prix experience with exclusive site tours and an insight into the management of this world class event.

The program also involves exclusive tours of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre (MSAC), Melbourne and Olympic Parks and the newest facility to Melbourne's sporting infrastructure Lakeside Stadium.

Additional ISFMP 2014 topics include:

• Sporting Precincts & Hubs Major Events & Community Participation

• Facility Establishment and Operation

• Legacy Planning for Sustainability

• Strategic Planning
