The 2023 Academy of Wine Business Research Conference
We are pleased to announce the 2023 conference will be held on
11-14 July 2023
at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, Canada
EMERGENCE & CHANGE
For 2023, we have selected a conference theme that we hope will serve as a creative spark, allowing us to think about our research in a world full of new and emerging challenges; and changing contexts, environments, and practices.
Our conference theme is designed to expand – rather than restrict – the conference offerings. So, we will consider the full variety of topics we have enjoyed in past conferences, as well as themed papers.
We welcome submissions beyond wine business to include the businesses of beer, cider, and spirits as we work to expand conference offerings.
AWBR 2023 will include two topic-specific tracks that welcome research on: (1) Asian markets; and (2) craft beer. These represent excellent opportunities for researchers interested in developing their work, in anticipation of the opportunity to submit to upcoming Special Issues in the International Journal of Wine Business Research (IJWBR).
WINE & CULTURE SYMPOSIUM
In addition to the regular conference sessions, there will be an all-conference symposium and panel discussion focused on wine and culture: Mapping the Terrain: The Historicity and Sociology of Cultures of Wine, A Research Agenda
Presentations and discussion that highlight areas of research potential, including, but not limited to:
- History-work and Wine: The crafting and deployment of history and heritage in wine and wine markets.
- Wine in Societies: Alcohol and cultures of tasting, sipping, and drinking.
- Was Adam Smith right? Economic thought, wine as commodity or luxury good.
- Politics and wine: Regulation (current and historic), wine, and social class.
- Future culture(s) of wine: Demographics, technology, and the place of wine
The 2023 conference welcomes submissions of:
