Hospitality in Sport and Events

Hospitality as an integral part of sport and events – The interrelated nature of hospitality, sport and events.

The core of this track is the evolution and ongoing development of hospitality, sport and events as related parts of the experience industry. In the world of sports, events play an integral part of creating sport experiences and hospitality plays an equally essential role in creating value in these events and thereby to their spectators, participants and other stakeholders. Especially in large-scale international events, the need for knowledge, understanding and strategic competencies related to the relationship of hospitality, sports and events are key elements for making these experiences valuable and unforgettable. This  hospitality, sport and events have on each other, will therefore be the framework for papers, sessions and workshop within this track and the content of these will be related to; challenges to-, trends and tendencies within-, new ways of working with-, or rethinking the hospitality, sport and events industry.
