Track chair: Dr. Charalampos (Babis) Giousmpasoglou, Bournemouth University and add Alex Paraskevas, University of West London

The rapid expansion of the hospitality industry globally and its increasing importance in the sharing and collaborative economy has changed the way we perceive hospitality management. New players such as the successful Airbnb start-up signpost the emergence of significant opportunities and challenges for hospitality managers as well as investors and decision makers. In addition, the recent geopolitical changes (i.e. Brexit), the rapid technological advancements and the increased dependency on a multicultural and diverse workforce are shaping the future of the hospitality sector. Given these developments as “game changes” we invite papers to advance hospitality management research in this new era, from either academic or practitioner perspective. This theme includes the following topics:

  • Hotel/restaurant management
  • Hospitality operations management
  • HRM/OB in hospitality management
  • Hospitality marketing management

  • Hospitality education and training
  • Managing change and innovation in hospitality
