In a departure from the usual face-to-face gathering held annually, due to the unprecedented circumstance that have affected athletics and the rest of public life for much of 2020, a European Athletics Executive Board meeting in June agreed to transform the European Athletics Convention - previously scheduled to take place in October this year in Tallinn, Estonia - into an online e-Convention.
This was due to prevailing health concerns, the ongoing uncertainty surrounding travel between many countries in Europe caused by the coronavirus pandemic, and the high probability that some Member Federations may not to be able to attend in person.
The core part of the programme took place from 14-16 October with five additional workshops held during the following three weeks on 21/26/28 October and 2/4 November.

The European Athletics Convention is designed to support our Member Federations, offering opportunities for education, networking, planning and debriefing as well as socialising, along with the usual area or interest group meetings and calendar planning activities.
The 2021 Convention is currently scheduled to take place as planned in Lausanne, Switzerland.
