Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management
Meetings and Events of the Academy of Management:


The 2020 physical meeting of the Academy of Management scheduled for 7-11 2020 in Vancouver has been cancelled due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. A 2020 virtual Annual Meeting is in development. Please click here for an update from AOM President Jacqueline Coyle-Shapiro.

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.

    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.
