Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management
Meetings and Events of the Academy of Management:
The Academy of Management holds multiple events each year around the world. The largest and longest-running event is our Annual Meeting. Each year, more than 10,000 scholars, authors, students and practitioners gather in August to connect and explore ideas about management and organizational scholarship.
In addition to the Annual Meeting, AOM holds Specialized Conferences for smaller, meaningful and sustainable new meeting opportunities for members and non-members alike.
For authors interested in developing manuscripts for submission to one of our academic journals, AOM's Paper Development Workshops are offered year-round at locations around the world.
Academy of Management Annual Meeting
The Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management, held each year in August, is the largest annual gathering of management scholars in the world. Attended by more than 10,000 people, the meeting provides a forum for sharing research and expertise in all management disciplines through invited and competitive paper sessions, panels, symposia, workshops, distinguished speakers, and special programs for doctoral students. There is also an exhibition of approximately 60 exhibitors that provide members with cutting-edge information and ideas to improve their research, teaching, and service to the larger profession. While publishers are the most represented exhibitors, case writers for educational applications, computer hardware and software companies, teaching support vendors, and internet educational providers are also present.

Future Annual Meeting dates are scheduled up to eight years in advance, assuring AOM the ability to contract the required facilities to host over 2500 sessions and events as well as the 20,000 sleeping room nights needed to house 10,000+ attendees. Since its inception, the Annual Meeting has been conducted during late July and early August at a time when many scholarly institutions have a break in their schedules, hopefully allowing the maximum participation of Academy members. While the Academy works to avoid holidays and religious observances during this two-week time frame, AOM recognizes that there may be some years where avoiding conflicts is not possible. In the event that an accepted submitter is unable to attend in person due to religious observance, AOM will do its best to provide virtual accommodation for participation in their session.
