International Conference: Tourism Futures
2nd – 5th of November 2011, Stenden University Leeuwarden
The annual conference of the European Tourism Future Institute (ETFI) will primarily address the issue of tourism futures. These themes include diverse topics such as rapid technological developments and the search for authenticity. Examples of technological developments are the rapid growth of alternative sources of energy and transportation, information technology, nanotechnology, biotechnology and robotica. The search for authenticity can be seen in the intensification of visitor-local relationships within creative cities and the slow movement in food and tourism. If we take into account that tourism is the largest and fastest growing industry in the world, it leaves no question that it is a significant challenge to think about tomorrow’s tourism and tomorrow’s tourist. Although there are valuable initiatives to monitor trends and developments worldwide, this will not be sufficient. We will have to stimulate our creativity and imagination to anticipate how various forces in our contemporary society will affect the demand and supply for leisure and tourism in the decades to come. The aim of the conference is to actively engage some of the world’s leading experts in future studies, academics and practitioners in a vibrant discussion and debate, to exchange information.
We invite delegates to submit papers relating to the overall theme of the conference as well as related themes. Specific workshops will be dedicated to:
- Creative cities: The rise of the citysumer
- Hotel of the future
- Slow Marketing
- Global shift of economic and political power: Emerging and submerging countries
Abstract (200-500 words) should indicate the topic of the paper, the workshop topic to which it is related, the main findings, and the theoretical and/or practical implications thereof. For detailed submission information please visit www.etfi.eu/conference.
Abstracts should be submitted by e-mail by July 31, 2011, to ETFI (email@example.com). Deadline for the submission of full papers: September 30, 2011.
Conference workshop papers will be considered through peer review for the new journal on Tourism Futures. The first issue of this journal is expected by mid-2012.
