Making it Count for Women Academics and Researchers in Tourism (WAiT)

Under-representation of women at senior levels of all aspects of the tourism field is an issue that concerns us all, and is particularly pertinent in academia, and while we do see women in tourism research consulting roles, there are lessons that remain to be learnt in all sectors.  Join us for a lively session, with a presentation from Dr Joanne Pyke and discussion on the issues facing women following a research based career in tourism, both academic and practitioner. Her presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with members from the industry and academia (more details on the panel to follow), then more time for a small group discussion over lunch.


     Dr. Joanne Pyke is Senior Research Fellow with the Tourism and Events Research Group a­t Victoria University, Melbourne. She is formerly the General Manager of the Equity Research Centre in Melbourne and has worked across the fields of tourism and leisure, gender and cultural diversity in work, education and training, as well as in migration and settlement.


Session Chair: Catheryn Khoo-Lattimore, Griffith University


    Dr. Catheryn Khoo-Lattimore is a Senior Lecturer, Department of Tourism, Sport and Hotel Management, Griffith University and the founding chair of WAiT (Women Academics in Tourism). Catheryn has just returned from the University of Florida as a Fulbright Scholar working on the consumer behaviour of all-women's travel groups.

Metropolitan Tourism Experience Development


In the age of budget airlines and increased mobility, the importance for metropolitan areas of positioning themselves in an increasingly competitive environment wherethe boundaries between international tourism and local leisure are becoming blurred has increased. Metropolitan areas are highly preferred targets for tourists owing to their diversified and concentrated attractions particularly cultural heritages and up-to-date events as well as to their business environment.

They are the focal points of tourism in a lot of regions and countries. Beside the questions of local  management and sustainability, the regional implications (not only for the neighbouring regions) are of crucial importance from the aspect of development opportunities and strategies.

Another aspect of metropolitan tourism is connected to the local population, and the great variety of institutions and businesses linked to tourism system. The aim of the RSA research network is to examine tourism diversity from the perspective of regional development in order to identify current challenges and
opportunities in a systematic manner, and hence provide the basis for a more wellinformed integration of tourism in regional development strategies and move beyond political short-termism and buzzword fascination. In the frame of the network a series of workshops have been organised from various topics of destination management till rural tourism.

The Budapest workshop aims to discuss and exchange ideas, experiences, and research results about metropolitan tourism development and management. Both the core areas and their regions, as well as the relations and connections with regions outside of metropolitan areas as objects for destination development and management, are relevant for the workshop.
