The 8th Biennial Conference on Tourism in Asia:
Tourism, Hospitality and Foodservice Industry in Asia:
Growing Role of Asia in the World Tourism

Angers, France, 03. - 05.07.2008

Following the success of the seven biennial conferences on Tourism in Asia held in Vietnam, Thailand, Hong Kong and Korea, the 8th Biennial Conference on Tourism in Asia will be held for the first time in Europe in 2008.

In recent years, Asia is playing a more and more important role in the world’s tourism industry. It is commonly believed that the modern day tourism was invented in the 18th century Europe and further developed in North America and the rest of the world. With Asia’s growing importance in world economy and world tourism industry, it remains to be seen how the world tourism industry will change in the years to come.

The 8th Biennial Conference on Tourism in Asia will focus on the changes and impacts induced by this new multi-polarisation of tourism and the growing importance of Asia. The Conference will specifically focus on the following issues:

  • When tourism developed in North America, traditional models were reproduced but innovations took place (like natural parks): what kind of innovations are there today in process (changes in attitudes, technology, places, and organizations) with the growing role of Asia?
  • How is the tourism industry structuring itself to involve the Asian market (Asian destinations and Asian international tourists)?
  • How different are the inbound and outbound Asian tourists’ attitudes and behaviours from the tourists in other parts of the world?
  • What are the main issues in operations management or strategic management when developing partnerships with Asia (intercultural issues, contracts, networking, etc)?
