The Association was originally formed as a UK-based group (OMA) in 1984, and rapidly grew into Europe's leading professional association for Operations Management. The expanding European dimension led to the forming of the European Operations Management Association (EurOMA) in October 1993. At its annual conference in 2009 (Gothenburg), EurOMA proudly acknowledged 25 years of OM in Europe – and a few years later in 2013 (Dublin), EurOMA celebrated the 20th anniversary of its own annual conference.
