Conference Objectives!

Tourism in a Transforming World!

Globally, a lot of changes and transformations are taking place, particularly, in social, economic, technological and environment-related aspects. While the giant-sized developed economies have the resources to attract huge crowds to their nations and tourist-destinations, small economies find it quite challenging not only to channelize huge investments on tourism ventures and projects but also, to attract tourist to their countries.

Investments on Tourism Projects! A Key to Success!

Tourism warrants huge investments. Attracting investments on large-scale depends upon ensuring attractive returns. Otherwise, investors, banks and financial institutions may not like to invest. Also, a collaboration among private, public and other stakeholders is a must to ensure long-term success in tourism.

This is quite necessary as the world is transforming faster thanks to technological and demographic changes happening across many continents.

Also, politics, competition, climate change and riskiness pose challenges to this sector.

Global Transformations!

Research indicates that global tourism industry would also undergo significant changes and transformations owing to the above developments. Tourism, of course, helps a country to employ people on a large-scale. So, this sector should be developed faster with clear-cut policies, cooperation and support from one all.

Against this back ground, this upcoming conference will be held in one of the best tourist-attractions in the world, Hong Kong-SAR.

All are cordially invited to attend!

Publication Opportunities!

You have publication opportunities in one of our journals based on your preference.
