Twitter has provided a backchannel for the SMAANZ conference, since gaining a ground swell amongst attendees in 2012. The tweets include more direct observations of the conference, insight on the research and more than a little friendly banter.
Here is a summary of the Sport Management Association of Australia and New Zealand Conference hosted by the University of Tasmania from 25 to 27 November 2015.
My top Tweet at SMAANZ was the one just below. Here is a link to the whole #SMAANZ2015 hashtag on Storify.
The social value of sport, $1 spent is a $4.40 return on social value. Nice work @RussHoye et al. #smaanz2015 pic.twitter.com/w9nuTawgEX
