Tourist Experiences: Meanings, Motivations, Behaviours. 
The Second International Conference

University of Central Lancashire, Preston, UK

April 13th - 16th 2011

Keynote Speaker:  Professor Chris Ryan, University of Waikato, New Zealand

Following the successful Tourist Experiences: Meanings, Motivations, Behaviours Conference hosted by the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) in April 2009, we are pleased to announce the second Tourist Experiences conference, to be held in April 2011.
The purpose of this conference is again to provide a forum for exploring the diversity of behaviours, motivations and meanings embraced by contemporary tourist experiences, further contributing to our knowledge and understanding of how and why tourists experience spaces, places, peoples and cultures.
Uniquely, it is intended that this conference will be held in two locations. The first part of the conference (registration, introduction/welcome, keynote presentation, first night and first day parallel paper sessions) will take place at the UCLan campus in Preston. All delegates will then be transferred to the internationally-renowned Lake District, one of the most scenically dramatic areas in England. Here, the conference will continue for a further two days, including the opportunity to participate in a choice of study tours within the national park

Call for Papers
Reflecting the location of the latter part of the conference in the Lake District, one of England’s most enduringly popular rural tourism destinations amongst domestic and international visitors alike, we would particularly welcome papers that, from an empirical or conceptual basis, explore the touristic experience of nature, wilderness or the countryside. At the same time, we would also welcome papers that address the general themes of the social significance / meaning of tourism, tourism demand / motivations, and tourist roles / behaviour, whilst more specific topics might include:

 (Post)modernity and tourist experiences
 Specific niche markets / behaviours (e.g. youth tourism, backpacking, ecotourism, etc)
 The significance of tourist places
 Tourist typologies
 Spiritual dimensions of tourism
 Tourist motivation
 Tourism demand (models / perspectives)
 Emergent behaviours / forms of tourism
 Dark tourism
 Researching tourist experiences: methodological perspectives
 Tourism industry / destination perspectives
 New tourist spaces
 Heritage / authenticity

Expressions of interest and abstracts of up to 500 words should, in the first instance, be sent to Richard Sharpley. All submissions will be subject to a double-blind review. Abstracts should include author(s) names, affiliations and contact details, and should be submitted by 30 September 2010. Conference proceedings will be provided on a CD-Rom.  As with the previous conference, it is also again planned to publish selected papers in an edited volume (see R. Sharpley and P. R. Stone (eds.) (forthcoming) Tourist Experience: Contemporary Perspectives. London: Routledge)

The venues
The conference is hosted by the School of Sport, Tourism & The Outdoors, University of Central Lancashire, Preston, UK. It will open on the University’s campus in Preston before transferring to the Old England Hotel, Windermere, in the English Lake District National Park, for two further days.

Conference fee / booking forms
The full conference fee is £550 inclusive of three nights’ accommodation, all meals, and transfers between locations. Day attendance and student rates are also available.
