IAEE will be hosting monthly Virtual Faculty BUZZ/Meet Ups.
The discussions will be structured to allow faculty to discuss pertinent and timely topics relevant to higher education faculty. This opportunity will allow participants the opportunity to build new connections, share experiences, knowledge, tips, resources and solutions in a casual, supportive and confidential setting, coming away with take-aways and personal action items to assist them in their personal and professional lives.
IMEX America 2022 is back and will host faculty, students, and industry researchers for two days of faculty engagement.
The Faculty Engagement Program is supported through a partnership with the International Association of Exhibitions and Events® (IAEE). A key component of the ‘engagement’ is the presentations of academic papers focused on best practices in Meetings, Exhibitions, Events and Conventions.
IMEX, in partnership with IAEE, will present academic papers as part of its annual show, and invites academics and industry experts to submit academic papers (more rigorous than might appear in an industry journal but not necessarily as rigorous as might appear in a learned journal) focusing on a broad range of topics dealing with best practices in the meetings, exhibitions, events and conventions industry. Both empirical and conceptual works are encouraged and should represent a reasonable level of academic rigor.
All submissions will go through a refereeing process to determine acceptance. Presenters will have the choice of (1) making a stand-up presentation on October 12, (2) making a poster presentation on October 13, or (3) both stand up and poster presentation.
A paper review committee of editors from the Journal of Convention and Event Tourism and expert researchers in the field will conduct a double-blind refereed screening of abstracts. Notices of acceptance will be sent by September 23, 2022. Once a paper is accepted, at least one author must register for and present the paper at IMEX America 2022. Registration is free and available on the IMEX America website.

March 6, 2015 – mark it down in your calendar. On this day, the meeting, exhibition and events profession took a giant step forward in defining a foundation of competencies that are based on the business roles and responsibilities event professionals provide to organizations. For the first time ever, our profession is being recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor as a standalone business sector, distinct and separate from lodging and tourism sectors. Read more here.
