Oliver Stamm, sports management consultant and former Olympic Beach Volleyball player, attended SEMOS™ 2018. He says: “It’s impossible to learn and hear so much in just one week anywhere else in the world. The list of speakers and contacts is completely special, the classmates will remain friends for life, and the experts are the best out there. You literally cannot pack more knowledge, experience, or learnings in one week. Absolutely impossible. And even breaks and evenings are filled with yet more international learnings. If you want to capitalise on your passion for sports, SEMOS will be your trampoline to a great career.”

AISTS Alumni Maria Peredo Silva attended last year’s SEMOS™. “The week was one of the most insightful and impactful of my year at AISTS,” she says. “It is extremely hands on and interactive and you get behind-the-scenes insights directly from major event organisers. Seeing first-hand how national federations and the IOC run their events is invaluable. As an ex-athlete, I never truly realised the complexity of an event and how so many aspects fit together like a puzzle. SEMOS™ taught us the practical skills to put that puzzle together and create highly successful and sustainable events.”
