Written by Joachim Willms [Managing Director]   
The Hospitality, Leisure, Tourism and Events track at the British Academy of Management conference 2010 in Sheffield next September is being chaired by Paul Lynch and Angela Roper (

The submission date for papers is 26th February 2010 and we would welcome receiving your papers for the track, details as follows:

Hospitality, Leisure, Tourism and Events Management

In this area of management, competing perspectives on the challenges facing business and management have almost always been a central concern, be it significance to organisations, managers and workforce or consumers. This track aims to encompass the full wealth of management research but also welcomes critical and social scientific perspectives as applied to hospitality, leisure, tourism and events management and also papers concerned with methodological issues of relevance to advancing new knowledge. Whilst we welcome all good management papers applied to the hospitality, leisure, tourism and events industries, we are particularly interested in those which address some of the issues below:

What research will emerge in Hospitality, Leisure, Tourism and Events Management in a changing climate?

What advances are being made towards development and understanding of new forms of ethical organisations? What does it mean to be ethically-led? What does it mean to be an ethical educator in Hospitality, Leisure, Tourism and Events Management?

What changes are occurring in hospitality, leisure, tourism and events that will better prepare graduates for the challenges future managers will encounter?

Slow food movement, ethical travel, couch-surfing, on-line gambling, virtual conferencing, living off-the-grid... What are the implications of such social trends for business and management in hospitality, leisure, tourism and events?

With increasing research into internationalisation - how relevant is current (western-dominated?) theory to the development, strategy and management of international hospitality, leisure tourism and events firms?

In terms of generic operations theory - how appropriate is this to the way our sector firms and organisations work and the way they need to be managed in a changing world? How much of this theory is disseminated and applied in reality?

Security and safety and the impact of climate change - Are these any further up the agenda for organisations in our sectors? What can management learn from our research? Assuming we do not know enough, what further research is needed to influence practice?

Gaining access to firms, organisations and consumers is an increasing concern - how do we make research happen, what can we learn and share from gaining and maintaining access to relevant samples?

Action research is becoming more widely used as a research strategy - how has theory informed and even improved practice?

Many studies involve case study research - how do we disseminate findings back to sample case firms? Is this different to how we
academically write up findings?

Increased use of more highly qualitative research methods are being employed associated with the more recent moments of qualitative research - what contributions to understanding management have been made? How have they enhanced organisational understanding and practice?

All four sectors feature a wide range of firms from small independents to large multinational corporations - how do they differ in terms of the management issues facing them in the future?

How are social scientific perspectives and their contributions informing management theory and practice across the four sectors?

Critical perspectives are making ever more significant contributions to knowledge in hospitality, leisure, tourism and event management. How are they changing, informing and developing current practices and understandings?

Given developments in the organisation of business faculties and the increasing usage of generic management journal quality grading lists as benchmarks, what educational and management issues arise from hospitality, leisure, tourism and events being brought under a business and management agenda?

We are also keen at this stage to identify any potential reviewers for the track. Papers will be sent for review the week commencing 8 March 2010 and we would need your completed reviews by 9 April 2010 at the latest.  Please let us know if you are able to review a paper for the track during this period.  The more reviewers we have the better.
