The University of Derby, Buxton campus
13 – 15 July 2016
CALL FOR PAPERS
The University of Derby is proud to host the Association for Events Management Education (AEME) Forum in July 2016.
Events are experiences that feed and test our senses and in turn test and elevate our understanding and knowledge of the world.
From events that stimulate us through sound, vision, taste, touch and hearing, to events that increase our sense of belonging, this forum will look at the sensory and educational effect of events experiences from an academic and a delivery point of view.
We therefore invite the submission of research papers and posters on the following themes:
- Sensory events
- Immersive events
- Nostalgic events
- Community events
- Accessibility and events
- Experiential learning in events management education
· Open stream - In addition to papers addressing one of the main forum themes, novel research outside those thematic foci is also welcome. The open stream of the forum is designed to encourage participation for those whom the current year's theme is not within their particular area of interest, but who have a contribution to make to event management or studies theory, methodology, policy or pedagogy.
Submission details for papers and posters are attached.

Quality Assurance Agency Subject Benchmark Review

- This is a reminder that the QAA, with our help, have been busy revising the 2008 Hospitality, Leisure, Sport & Tourism Subject Benchmarks. The proposal is that the title changes to include events (EHLST) and despite the length it is far more accurate of the content. More importantly the benchmark statements will become more recognisable for those that are not aware of our community or fit with HLST e.g. courses are being developed from Marketing and Business without reference/recognition of a traditional relationship with HLST. So, please have a read and comment, especially if you have had recent use of them to review your own courses: http://ow.ly/3HKC301aHn7. There is an online survey that goes direct to QAA https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/H57LL57 but it would be good to know your views so that we can represent you in the final deliberations before the final document is published in July/August 2016. The deadline for the survey is 24 June 2016.
