Themed Experience and Attractions Academic Symposium opens call for proposals for 2022

Themed Experience and Attractions Academic Society (TEAAS) has opened its call for proposals for their annual scholarly symposium, supported by IAAPA and others, focused on themed experience and attractions. Submissions are due by September 9, 2022.

The symposium will take place in Orlando, Florida on November 18, 2022, 9:00AM – 4:45PM local time, on the last day of IAAPA Expo. Hosting this symposium during IAAPA Expo enables participating academics to enhance their research, knowledge transfer, and exchange through access to over 1,000 exhibitors of products and services representing the state of the art of the attractions industry and opportunities for networking with some of the 30,000 industry operators, manufacturers, and suppliers who attend IAAPA Expo. The schedule will also permit interested industry members to attend the TEAAS academic symposium program. 

The symposium will include oral presentations of selected research papers (conventional 15-minute oral academic presentations), structured networking sessions, and a lunchtime research poster session. This year there will also be an evening get-together to continue informal networking and conversations with colleagues. 

The symposium invites submissions for oral presentations (1000-word extended abstract) and posters (500-word extended abstract) for consideration for inclusion in the symposium program. A limited number of oral presentation slots will be allocated to proposals from academic faculty representing a diversity of scholarship. Presented abstracts will be conventional scholarly research presentations, not instructional seminars. There will be audio-visual support for accepted presentations.
