TTRA European Chapter Conference
“Transport and Tourism: Challenges, Issues and Conflicts”
22 – 24 April 2009, Rotterdam/Breda, The Netherlands
 OBJECTIVES OF THE CONFERENCE:  Although tourism’s very existence depends on transport, most researchers in transportation and logistics show little interest in tourism and travel, and few tourism researchers focus on transport issues. Important new technological developments in transport – e.g. the invention of passenger trains and jet aircraft – have always provided significant opportunities for the tourist industry. At the same time, tourism also has a major impact on transport modes and networks through its ability to supply additional motivations for leisure and business travel.

There is , therefore, a strong interdependence between tourism activities and transport systems, both of which have expanded at a large scale. However, this continued growth over many decades may be threatened in the near future by global factors such as climate change and security issues. The impact of transport on the environmental quality of destinations (e.g. noise and air pollution, damage to nature and landscapes) may increasingly set limits on tourism growth.
Integrated knowledge of transport and tourism is essential to develop destinations, tourism enterprises and effective tourism policies, and to cope with emerging local and global issues and conflicts. There are four sub-themes:
1.  Global  transport developments: air  transport congestion,  low cost carriers and regional airports, climate change, effects of oil prices  (peak-oil),  revival of  (high-speed)  rail,  tourism  flows,    the  cruise  tourism  boom,  emerging  transport technologies.
2.  Transport and  logistics at destinations:  infrastructure,  networks,  accessibility, transport  mode  choice  and  mode  shifts,  route  information,  safety  and  security issues,  logistics of goods and waste,  transport-based  tourist attractions, airports, railway stations, (mega-) events. 

3.  ICT  in  tourism  and  transport:  e-ticketing, GPS  applications,  internet  booking, video-conferencing,  imagineering,  electronic  logistic  support  systems,  ICT  in transport  network management  and  capacity  planning,  security  systems,  virtual travel. 

4.  Ethical  issues  and  sustainable  development:  climate  change,  local  transport induced  environmental  problems,  pro-poor/community  based  tourism,  cross-cultural  and  economic  guest-host  issues,  voluntary  tourism  in  developing countries.
Of course also papers dealing with other tourism research subjects than the main theme are most welcome at this conference.
