BACKGROUND

Over the last six decades, tourism has experienced continued expansion and diversification, becoming one of the largest and fastest-growing economic sectors in the world (United Nations World Tourism Organization, 2016).

More specifically, in spite of sporadic shocks, international tourist arrivals have recorded a virtually uninterrupted increase: from 277 million in 1980 to 1,186 million in 2015.

The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) in its most updated long-term outlook of future tourism trends (Tourism Towards 2030) estimates that international arrivals worldwide are expected to reach nearly 1.8 billion by the year 2030 (an increase by 3.3% a year on average from 2010 to 2030).

A number of major factors can explain this dramatic increase in demand for tourism: (1) the process of globalization; (2) the development of mass transportation and motorization (and the parallel decrease in cost of transportation due to improvements in technology); (3) the rhythm of increase of world GDP as well as the increase of income to be allocated to travels; (4) the introduction of new ICT applications in the work of public and private stakeholders in the tourism sector; (5) the general improvement of security and rights for tourists.

Every and each of the abovementioned factors is significantly contributing to shaping a different institutional landscape and economic environment for a number of economic players such as Convention Bureaus, Professional Conference Organizers, Destination Management Companies, Airlines, Hotels, Conference Venues, Congress Centers, Convention Centers, Exhibition Centers. Moreover, companies in the tourism sector are confronted with increasing managerial challenges and have to deal with a turbulent and fast changing environment:

TOPICS AND CALL FOR PAPERS

For the Eight International Conference on Tourism Management and Related Issues to be held in September 2018 in Prague we invite contributions that focus especially, but not exclusively, on tourism, travel, leisure and hospitality management, with an emphasis on:

  • Hospitality management
  • Destination management & marketing
  • Congress management
  • MICE
  • Air transportation management
  • Antecedents of tourism collaboration
  • Archeological sites management
  • World Heritage and intangible cultural heritage management
  • Urban and regional tourism planning
  • Tourism policies
  • Inter-organizational dynamics (e.g., mergers and acquisitions, joint venture, strategic alliances, coopetitive strategies, etc.) in the tourism sector 
  • Tourism marketing
  • Renewable sources of energy and tourism 
  • Glocalisation: managing the global and the local in the tourism industry
  • Ecotourism and sustainable tourism development
  • ICT and tourism
  • Managing the skies: air transportation

The topics reported above are indicative and informative rather than exclusive. Other interesting work on tourism management and related issues that is not closely related to the themes above will be taken into consideration.

We invite full papers, doctoral research papers, poster papers, abstracts, and research proposals on any of the aforementioned topics without any specific constraints in terms of theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches.

To advance investigation on tourism management and to further expand its theoretical and practical bases and boundaries, we need to explore, apply and confront both conceptual and empirical wisdom and scholarship stemming from different perspectives. Therefore, both business practitioners and academics are invited to submit their contributions.
