scottishathletics have announced that they will be hosting the prestigious European Athletics Coaches Association (EACA) Conference in 2008. Planning for the event has been ongoing over the past few months in partnership with EACA and UK Athletics and the formal handover ceremony was conducted on Sunday 4 November at the 2007 Conference in Moscow. 

The Conference, which will be launched formally in early 2008, will be held in Glasgow from 31 October to 2 November 2008 and will incorporate the scottishathletics International Coaching Conference. The Conference will feature a number of world class, internationally respected speakers, and is expected to sell out fast, with delegates travelling from across Europe to attend the weekend.

scottishathletics Education and Development Manager Ewen Cameron said: "I am delighted that Scotland has the opportunity to deliver the European Athletics Coaching Conference in 2008. This event will be the highlight of the European Athletics Coaching Calendar and it is a fantastic opportunity for Scottish and British coaches to attend yet another world class event on their own doorstep. We look forward to welcoming coaches from across Europe to Glasgow next year."

UK Athletics Head of Coaching and Teaching Callum Orr said: "UK Athletics is very pleased to support scottishathletics in hosting the 2008 European Coaches Conference. This will be an outstanding event with national and international speakers of the highest quality. This will be a must attend event for all coaches serious about professional learning."
