    After being held as an innovative – and highly successful – online e-Convention owing the Covid pandemic in 2020, the annual European Athletics Convention returns to being staged as an in-person event this year and it will be held in Lausanne, Switzerland on the 15-16 October.

    Member Federations, European Athletics Partners, meeting organisers and delegates from other associated organisations will be in attendance, with the Convention being held in both the Hotel Royal Savoy and the Hotel Carlton in the centres of Lausanne.

    The two-day programme includes ten workshops and two panel sessions addressing topic of interest to anyone involved in athletics in Europe and, as usual, there will also meetings of regional athletics organisations and specific interest groups.

    The Convention will conclude on the evening of Saturday 16 October with the glittering and spectacular Golden Tracks awards ceremony at the Swiss Tech Convention Centre in Lausanne, which will see the winners of the men’s and women’s European Athlete of the Year and Rising Star for 2021 announced.
