On behalf of the Executive Committee of the Council for Hospitality Management Education (CHME), we are pleased to announce that BU’s Department of Tourism & Hospitality will be hosting the CHME 2018 Annual Research Conference next May.
The conference will be a showcase for research in innovative hospitality. The four thematic streams of the conference will be unchanged, but we are also introducing new streams of ‘research on technology and innovation’ and ‘today’s and tomorrow’s consumers’.
Our main theme – ‘Innovation in hospitality: connecting all stakeholders to deliver memorable experiences’ – embraces the multifaceted changes driven by dynamic political, economic, social and technological forces surrounding hospitality, which affect both academia and industry.
We look forward to welcoming you in Bournemouth with a vibrant academic and social programme at an inspiring conference.
