Academic conferences: Can it be fun too?
I attended the annual conference of iCHRIE (International Council on Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Education) Summer Conference in Orlando, FL in July/August. It was an annual event where a group of hospitality professors and graduate students get together to showcase their research and network with one another.
It was nice catching up with other scholars and friends in the conference, but honestly, I don't feel people are very excited about the conference. Reasons may include:
