Our mission and vision

We will bring together the global sports and exercise medicine community to share latest evidence and cutting edge research, to give expert advice on managing patients in your practice, and to discuss how we support populations to live healthy and physically active lifestyles.


Our objectives

  • To share the latest evidence on new treatments, guidelines and best practice for supporting patients with sports or exercise related injuries
  • To answer questions and provide advice from leading experts in the field on how to handle tricky cases in your practice
  • To discuss and debate ways in which populations can be encouraged to live more active lifestyles, how to turn research into policy, and how this impacts on reducing preventable diseases
  • To form a diverse community of professionals, patients and athletes working across different countries, levels and specialties


Our values

The event will be planned and delivered according to the following values:


We acknowledge the social determinants of health, and the inequalities that are present between different countries, communities, systems and populations. We will discuss these issues, and work together to create fairer systems leading to justice.

Diversity and inclusion
We are committed to ensuring diversity and inclusion across our programme.  This extends to the subjects we cover and equitable representation of speakers in terms of gender, ethnicity, and geographical location.

Patient, practitioner, and athlete involvement
We ensure patients, practitioners, and athletes are involved in the planning, design and delivery of the event, and that their expertise is taken seriously in everything we do.

Evidence based practice
Our programme will be based on latest evidence, published guidelines and research to offer robust, effective and safe recommendations.
