An in-depth discussion on several topics in the areas of tourism and marketing is highly encouraged.

The academic fraternity is moving towards encouraging cross-cultural research. So, we are sure that you would relish and cherish this great experience for a longer period of time.
Needless to mention that you are participating in this conference at Wagner College, Staten Island, New York, which has been rated as the most beautiful college/university campus in New York, consistently.
With the rapid advancement of science and technology, people living in different parts of the world, although they belong to different religions, race and color, have learnt to live and work together. This phenomenon has rendered geographical boundaries, meaningless. War, crime against humanity, vandalism, destruction of properties and incidents of such crimes have disturbed peace and harmony at many places/countries from time immemorial. Although faith in different gods has always been a part of human race, it should not obviously, escalate to the level of intolerance and hate against each other. Of course, understanding different cultures, visiting places of historical importance would certainly help an individual to learn and respect other cultures and faiths.
The diversity in cultures are so rich that if we understand other cultures, it would help us to promote peace and harmony in the world. No wonder, tourism helps us to understand humanity better, treat fellow humans with kindness and respect, sympathy and good intentions. Tourism teaches us to display a very high level of tolerance towards all human beings irrespective of caste, color, race and religion.
New York has always been a city that welcomes people from different cultures and religions. The upcoming conference to be held at Wagner College helps you to meet and interact with some of the best professionals in the areas of tourism and marketing. Also, you will have the opportunity to identify potential areas of joint research works and engage in inter-disciplinary research as well.
Please submit your research abstracts/full papers/case studies at the conference in any of the areas in marketing, tourism and hospitality.
