The Academy of Marketing Tourism Marketing SIG, in collaboration with the Centre for Sport, Leisure and Tourism Research at the University of Exeter, invites doctoral students in tourism marketing and management to participate in a PhD Colloquium held by the Economic and Social Research Council’s (ESRC) centre of excellence for postgraduate training in tourism.

The purpose of the event is to bring together future experts in tourism marketing and management to:

  • Make presentations on their research,
  • Exchange knowledge and ideas, and
  • Share experiences and learn from senior academics in the field.

The theme of the Colloquium will be to explore innovative approaches to research in tourism marketing and management. We especially welcome papers with a strong focus on research epistemologies and/or methodologies, but all aspects of the PhD process will be considered.  In addition to a series of paper sessions, there will be opportunities to meet other students, supervisors and scholars, and to deepen your knowledge of professional research in this field.  This Colloquium follows on from three extremely successful earlier events held in Exeter (2007), Bournemouth (2008) and Nottingham (2009).
