The 2016 Event Studies SIG session at the CAUTHE 2016 Conference will be an interactive session with invited speaker, Fran Kerlin, Acting Manager, Business and Tourism Melbourne, City of Melbourne (pictured left).
The session will use the 20th International Aids Conference, held in Melbourne 20-25th July 2014 as a recent case study example of the potential of globally roaming international association events to engender a range of economic, social and cultural host city impacts.
An overview of the cultural program affiliated with the Conference, the steps involved in planning and resulting impacts and legacies for Melbourne and beyond will be presented. A facilitated discussion on the challenges of planning for and researching cultural and other intangible legacies of international association events will follow.
The new SIG Coordinators, A/Prof Leonie Lockstone-Binney and Martin Robertson (via Skype) will introduce themselves to the SIG membership and generate brief discussion about plans for the SIG in 2016.
