Niche Tourism and New Emerging Markets

Special Session at the International Conference on Tourism (ICOT 2011)

Tourism in an Era of Uncertainty

Organised by

Dr. Nikolaos Boukas, European University Cyprus

Rhodes Island, GR, 27th – 30th April 2011



The last decades, the tourism industry is characterised by a rapid development, the use of mass elements, and the visual consumption. The domination of the mass model of tourism development has led to the deterioration of the resources of many places, and eventually to the decrease of their quality, resulting in a series of negative impacts to the host destinations. In an era where the economic crisis and its associated problems are evident in many countries, the need to turn towards more adequate forms of tourism development and the discovery of new emerging markets are of critical importance. The special session Niche Tourism and New Emerging Markets to be held as part of the International Conference on Tourism (ICOT 2011) “Tourism in an Era of Uncertainty”, aims to examine the significance of niche tourism and new emerging markets for the long term development and economic growth of destinations, but also for the enrichment and construction of more meaningful experiences for visitors themselves. The session will give the opportunity to academics, practitioners, policy makers, consultants, and researchers to discuss and exchange ideas and methodologies regarding the various types of niche tourism and new emerging markets and their contribution to the maximization of the potential of a destination and to the formation of more holistic experiences for visitors and tourists.



Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit papers that focus (but not limited) on the following themes:

·        Trends and future of niche tourism (cultural, religious, tribal, heritage, coastal, educational, adventurous, rural, festivals/events, sport, dark, youth, elderly, photographic, conference, special interest, ecotourism etc.)

·        New emerging markets: the catalyst for developing competitive products

·        Niche tourists’ perceptions, motivation, and experience

·        Niche tourism, product diversification, and image projection: policy issues

·        Social, economic, and environmental impacts of niche tourism

·        Managing niche destinations: creating, planning, and developing niche activities

·        Marketing niche tourism

·        Niche tourism: sustainable tourist development and transformation of destinations

·        Niche markets and host communities’ relationships

·        Niche tourism and identity formation



Abstracts of no more than 350 words should be submitted electronically by February 28th, 2011 to Dr. Nikolaos Boukas at the following email address: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it  

Papers presented at the session conference will be considered for publication in special issues/volumes or sections of the International Journal of Tourism Policy.
