Conference venue.

Interested scholars and practitioners are invited to submit sport business research proposals for consideration as either an oral (20 min) or poster presentation. Submissions will be accepted May 1st – August 22, 2015. Completed research studies are invited as well as works in progress, to be completed by the conference date. Proposal submissions should be based on original work not previously presented at another conference or under consideration for another conference. Both oral and poster submissions should be in the form of a 300-350 word abstract including a title page containing the list of authors, their affiliations, and the lead author contact information. The submissions for consideration should be sent to as a Word document attachment.

The conference will be held in the Bahamas aboard Royal Caribbean’s “Majesty of the Seas.” The ship will sail from the Port of Miami on Friday, February 19th, with stops in Coco/Little Stirrup Cay (Saturday) and Nassau (Sunday), returning to Miami on Monday, February 22nd.
