The 2017 uOttawa Sports Business Club (uOSBC) is extremely proud to announce their 2nd annual uOttawa Sport Management Conference which is set to take place Friday, October 13th, 2017 in the Desmarais Building (room 12102) at the University of Ottawa. 

This year, we have chosen themes to go along with our panels. Our three panels for this year's conference will be Professional Sports, Women in Sport, and Non-Profit Sports. The uOSBC strives to highlight what the sport business industry has to offer here in Ottawa. Since we are in the Nation’s Capital, the main focus of this event will be on discovering the world of Canadian sports! 

​Our target demographic is students from the University of Ottawa, particularly graduate and undergraduate students from the Faculty of Human Kinetics (i.e. Sport Management, Sport Psychology, Coaching, Pedagogy, Physiology, Biomechanics, Motor Control and Learning). This diverse audience can all benefit from engaging and learning from industry leaders that operate within the Nation’s Capital. An invitation is extended to other students from the Ottawa region at the University of Ottawa, Carleton University and Algonquin College campuses. We also cast a wider net to university students from Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. 

We are excited and look forward to providing students with an engaging learning experience. We hope they will leave with a better understanding of the Canadian sport industry and feel happy to have been part of something unique that keeps growing at the University of Ottawa.
