Call for Abstracts: Legacies and Mega Events: Fact or Fairy Tales? Conference, Coventry Uni, UK – 9 &10 Nov 2017

To mark the end of the 4-year EU funded Carnival project and the launch of a new edited book, also titled ‘Legacies and Mega Events: Fact or Fairytales?’ the Centre for Business in Society at Coventry University proudly present an international inter-disciplinary conference for academics and practitioners.

The conference will focus on the issues surrounding legacies and mega events and whether they are actually realistically achievable and how they can be measured.


The conference itself will be based around four main themes:

  • Understanding the Legacy Process
  • Theoretical frameworks for researching and analysing different aspects of legacy
  • Issues around measuring different aspects of legacy
  • The impact of the wider political economy upon host city legacy plans

Presentations maybe submitted on any aspect of legacy that fits within the four broad themes listed above. Further details and abstract submission guidelines can be found at:
