DATE: Wednesday 4 October 2017

TIME: 1.00pm to 5.30pm (registration open from 12.30pm)

LOCATION: University of South Australia, City West campus

TICKETS: Free

The sharing economy in tourism is growing at exponential rates. By transforming the way we live, work, produce, consume and exchange goods and services, the sharing economy is challenging the fundamental institutions of employment, work and entrepreneurship, while it can also generate social value. The new breed of sharing micro-entrepreneurs are driven by unconventional and controversial entrepreneurial motives, while they follow un-traditional work patterns. The workshop gathers leading academics, sharing economy entrepreneurs and professional experts to present findings and discuss the following economic, socio-cultural and environmental impacts of the sharing economy:

  • Sharing economy and transformations of social values, lifestyles, working patterns and consumption behaviours.
  • Does the sharing economy generate social value? How can we normalise and institutionalise to ensure a wider sustainable positive impact?
  • How the sharing economy disrupts industry structures and economic systems?
  • What types of employment and entrepreneurship opportunities are fuelled by the sharing economy?

The workshop features:

  • 10 presentations from internationally recognised academics and sharing economy entrepreneurs, all experts in their field.
  • A discussion panel with leading experts and entrepreneurs from the sharing economy.

Workshop presenters:

  • Professor Marianna Sigala, University of South Australia
  • Dr Rob Hallak, University of South Australia
  • Denise Lawungkurr Goodfellow, Southern Cross University
  • Associate Professor Yixiao Xiang, Shandong University, Jinan, China
  • Professor Sara Dolnicar, University of Queensland
  • Sanne Reijenga, Events & Volunteer Coordinator, OzHarvest SA
  • Ludwina Dautovic, Founder and CEO, The Room Xchange
  • Nick O’Brien, CV Check, National Enterprise Manager
