Council for Hospitality Management Education 2019 CHME conference

About the Conference

The annual Council for Hospitality Management Education (CHME) research, Learning and Teaching conference is the 28th in a series of conferences open to all. It will be of special interest to academics, students and industry practitioners from hospitality and related fields.

CHME will be a platform for research which explores the transforming nature of hospitality as a tool that allows us to critically appraise the changes that are taking place in the world around us.

The three track streams of the conference will be unchanged:

  • Hospitality Management
  • Critical and Cultural Studies of Hospitality
  • Learning, Teaching and Assessment in Hospitality Management Education

We are also introducing two new tracks:

  • Urban Hospitality
  • Hospitality and Wellness

The main theme of CHME 2019 – 'Transforming Hospitality' – focuses on how hospitality enables us to understand the complex social and cultural structures and practices within which it operates. These multidisciplinary enquiries redefine what hospitality is with a view to contributing to what hospitality is becoming – a tool that allows us to critically appraise the changes that are taking place in the world around us.

This conference aims to showcase insightful and influential research and help to set future research agendas within critical hospitality studies, hospitality management, health, and urban hospitality. To share the best practice in scholarship and pedagogy, this conference will also provide opportunities for those academics and industry professionals wishing to contribute to enhancing the value of pedagogic research.

The University of Greenwich looks forward to welcoming you to join this inspiring conference.
