The growth of city tourism and further developments in the tourism industry as well as wider society have created a wide range of new opportunities and challenges that have already or can disrupt tourism in the future. European Cities Marketing, in association with leading academic organisations in Europe would like to invite contributors for an international conference on this subject. The conference seeks theoretical discussion papers, but also empirical work and/or case studies based on applied research. The focus of the conference is disruptive change in city destinations, which includes among others, but 
not exclusively, topics such as: 
  • Economic disruptions 
  • Environmental disruptions  
  • Societal disruptions 
  • Political disruptions  
  • Disruptive policies and policymaking.  
  • Technological disruptions  
  • SMART disruptions 
  • Disruptions in tourism product development  
  • Tourism as a disruptor to processes within the wider city.  
  • Disruptive tourist behaviour  

The organisers would like to explicitly invite authors to also send in papers which relate to disruptive change in any other shape, means or form. The categories mentioned above are merely an indication of potential topics.

Abstracts (max 1,000 words) should be submitted by noon on 28th February 2017. The abstracts will be double blind peer-reviewed by members of the conference committee and screened for appropriateness to ensure the academic rigor and to fall within the scope of the conference. Please register after acceptance of your paper for the conference to ensure that we have your full contact details, i.e. your full name and title, departmental or other attribution (e.g. your job title), phone number and email address. At least one participant/author should register for the conference (after acceptance). You will receive notice of acceptance before 31 March 2017.  Please send the abstract as a Microsoft Word attachment to Dr. Ko KOENS ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it )

Publication options 
The intended outputs of the conference include a special issue of the Journal of Tourism Futures. We are also in negotiations for the publication of an edited book with an established publisher. Publication options are based on accepted papers of sufficient quality. We thus encourage all participants to submit highly developed papers. To be eligible for book or journal, the final articles need to be finished by 1st October 2017. 
Conference cost 
The conference fee for academics and presenters in the academic track is 235 Euros and includes two lunches and two dinners, coffee and refreshments as well as a side programme. Special rates are available for participants not joining the dinners.
