dc.description.abstractAs the event management industry grows and consolidates worldwide, event management associations play an increasingly significant role in professional support to the industry and its managers. Event management associations provide newcomers and existing practitioners with the necessary skills to ensure the continued growth and success of event management professionals. This article reviews the literature on professional associations and specifically explores the issues of codes of ethics or conduct that event management associations require their members to subscribe by. While there is a growing interest in the concept of ethics, especially in the tourism and leisure industries, there are no prior studies that investigate the codes of ethics or conduct that event management associations offer. This article identifies that of the 152 professional associations servicing the events industry 39.5% (60) associations had stated codes of ethics or professional codes of conduct/standards. Content analysis of these codes of ethics/conduct indicated four major categories. These included; effective business practices; reputation, respect and personal conduct; communication and professionalism.en_US
