Sheffield Business School will be hosting the 29th Annual Council for Hospitality Management Education (CHME) conference from 13-15 May 2020. The theme of the conference is Creating Hospitality Experiences: Authenticity in an Emerging World of Hyper-Reality.
Experience for all stakeholders (customers, staff, investors, education) is the core of the Hospitality industry. With the advancement of the experience economy, the growth of the sharing economy and the proliferation of information and communication technologies, the challenge for the industry is how to continue to create and deliver experiences which are authentic or deemed as ‘authentic’ by stakeholders. This CHME conference aims to debate this from a diverse perspective as the future of the industry hinges on creating experiences.
Contributions based on the following tracks are welcomed:
• Hospitality Management
• Critical and Cultural Studies of Hospitality
