Events and tourism

Event Management and Event Tourism is a core research field at the Centre for Tourism. Events are studied from a management, consumer experience and societal perspective.

Most research is carried out in collaboration with external partners. Currently, the centre has research projects together with partners such as the Swedish Classics, Göteborgsvarvet and Göteborg & Co. CFT has an extended network of event research colleagues around the world, notably in Canada (University of Calgary), UK (University of Sheffield, University of West Scotland, Leeds Beckett University) and Denmark (Syddanskt universitet).
