EGRG sponsorship at RGS-IBG 2022

The Economic Geography Research Group (EGRG) of the Royal Geographical Society-Institute of British Geographers (RGS-IBG) invites expressions of interest and proposals for sponsored sessions for the RGS-IBG Annual International Conference 2022.

The chair of the 2022 conference is Professor Rachel Pain (Newcastle University, UK) and the conference theme is Geographies Beyond Recovery. See for guidance on organising sessions.   

The EGRG are able to sponsor some sessions in the conference schedule that will be guaranteed to be non-concurrent. Please consider the EGRG sessions for any topic that includes consideration of economic questions (broadly defined). We are keen to sponsor diverse sessions based on innovative theoretical and methodological perspectives. 

Each session is 1 hour and 40 mins and in addition to paper-based sessions we also encourage innovative formats to sessions.

The deadline for session proposals submissions to the EGRG is 4th March 2022. Final session proposals including registered participants are due to the RGS-IBG 25th March, 2022.

Please email submissions to Kean Fan Lim ( and Jon Swords ( including session title and abstract (max 400 words), name(s) and affiliation(s) of the session convenor(s), and the anticipated format of the session. Please also indicate if you are applying or intend to apply for sponsorship with any other research group for co-sponsorship. Please bear in mind that sessions cannot occupy more than two slots in the whole programme.
