BU's Centre for Event and Sport Research (CESR) will host a one-day Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Research Seminar themed on Sport Tourism and Sport Events.
The event will be held at the Executive Business Centre, Lansdowne Campus, in Bournemouth on Tuesday 23 November 2010.
Confirmed seminar contributors include Professor Leo Jago from Nottingham University Business School who is co-editor of the International Journal of Event and Festival Management (IJEFM), and Professor Mike Weed from Canterbury Christchurch University, who is editor of the Journal of Sport and Tourism.
The seminar is aimed primarily at early career researchers with an interest in sport tourism and sport events related research, and will include parallel session contributions from 17 researchers from across the UK, previously awarded bursaries under an existing ESRC project to undertake sport tourism and sport event related research.
Further details on the themes and content of the research seminar, along with other sport tourism and sport events related work currently being undertaken by the Centre for Event and Sport Research, is available from Richard Shipway.
