School of Events, Tourism and Hospitality Management
Island and sea

Academic staff in the School have been considering what their research and engagement with practitioners might contribute to contemporary debates on events, tourism and hospitality management policy and practice.  Several of these are captured in a series of short videos.  They reflect individual academic interests but also a wealth of experience from working with international agencies such as the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO), the OECD Tourism Secretariat and the International Conference and Convention Association (ICCA) to national and regional agencies and private companies.  Naturally, the videos do not provide comprehensive recommendations. Instead, their purpose is to stimulate ways of thinking about the problems that events, tourism and hospitality organisations face at present.
