Making Waves ICE2013

The aim of this international conference is to debate the way in which we see, think and undertake events management research, pedagogy, policy and practice. Acknowledging the growing international research within the events area, the organisers invite extended abstracts from researchers, academics and industry experts who have an interest in events management. This three-day conference will encompass presentations, e-posters and workshops where we hope that participants will bring their expertise to help create a ‘sea-change’ of support for the future of events.

The theme of our conference is ‘Making Waves’, and we want to harness this natural energy to create enthusiasm that will change the way we perform our work under the broad umbrella of events management. Events should be much more than the short-term coming together of like-minded people. The world would be socially, culturally and economically poorer without events, and as academics we are in the privileged position of questioning and critically reviewing the value and meaning of events to individuals and communities.

The aims are to share and develop the 4Cs:

  • Cutting edge research
  • Current and transformative pedagogy
  • Contemporary industry practice
  • Communicating green principles in the way we deliver the conference.

Themes for abstracts

We are looking for you to submit your proposals under one of the following themes:

  • Making waves – transformational power; mega & major events; social media & technology; employment & careers; ISO20121
  • Riding the waves – Experiential events, learning & research; hyperreal experiences; festivity; rituals & rules
  • Challenging the waves – policy & practice; creativity & design; discourses & narrative; imagination & dreamscapes
  • Working the waves – Business Events; professionalisation; the revised purple guide; security; knowledge transfer; imagery, symbols & semiotics
  • Create a new wave by proposing original ideas or concepts not covered above.

We aim to implement the conference using green principles and we would like you to do the same. Please provide ideas of how you think we could do this by emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it .
