Southern Management Association is a society of professionals drawn together through a common interest in the field of management. They hold their annual conference in October/November each year in the Southern United States.
The conference hotel is the NH Central Convenciones hotel in Seville. Pablo de Olavide University is away from the downtown area but on the metro line and we have selected this hotel because it is in a nice area between the city center and the university which will allow for easy access to conference activities and the city center. Bus pickups/drop offs for some activities will be from this hotel. We have secured special room rates for conference attendees (see below), but attendees can also visit the hotel booking website directly as the hotel booking website has more room/rate options.
