The European Athletics Convention is designed to support our Member Federations, offering opportunities for education, networking and socialising, along with the usual area or interest group meetings and calendar planning activities. The 2018 Convention in the Swiss city of Lausanne saw an unprecedented number of networks and record levels of participation from Member Federations and other European Athletics stakeholders. 

The European Athletics Golden Tracks award ceremony will also take place in Tbilisi when the male and female European Athletes of the Year and Rising Stars will be crowned.

In 2018, France's decathlon world record holder Kevin Mayer and Great Britain's three-time Berlin 2018 European Athletics Championships gold medallist Dina Asher-Smith were crowned the male and female 2018 European Athletes of the Year.

In recognition of their success when winning senior European titles in Berlin, despite their young age, Sweden's Mondo Duplantis and Norway's Jakob Ingebrigtsen jointly received the men's Rising Star accolade while Belarus hurdler Elvira Herman was named the female 2018 Rising Star.
