Wed 2nd July - Fri 4th July 2014

AEME, the Association for Events Management Education, was established on April 21st 2004, in order to advance the education of the public in the subject of events and events management. The aim of the Association is to support and raise the profile of the events discipline through the sharing of education and best practice.

Every year we hold a conference to bring together AEME members and other academics and practitioners to discuss issues affecting events education and the wider events sector.

This year Sheffield Hallam University, as a founder member of AEME, is proud to host the 11th annual conference. Yorkshire will be at the forefront of the international sporting events calendar when it hosts the start of the 2014 Tour de France. The AEME conference held over three days prior to the start of the Tour will be a fitting arena to discuss key issues in the development of the events management body of knowledge.

The conference will take place at the heart of the Sheffield Hallam University City Centre Campus. Key note speakers will include relevant industry experts, academics and those involved in the organisation of the Tour de France. All key note speakers will be confirmed nearer the time.
