Famously uttered by Sir Isaac Newton,

“If I can see further than anyone else, it is only because I am standing on the shoulders of giants.”

In 2011 BSMPG invited the titans of Sports Medicine and Performance to Boston for the largest conference of its kind, and many attendees left asking the question, "how could you ever top that speaker line-up?" Well, we did. BSMPG is proud to announce May 19-20, 2012 as the selected date for Sports Medicine and Strength professionals to desend upon Boston MA for another monster conference!

So how could we ever top last year's speaker set?

Let's just say that we asked last year's speakers who they wanted to hear and we got em!
