2018 Conference

The narrative of tourism is changing; no longer is it about hotel bookings, guidebooks, coach tours, travel agency promotions, local advertising and family holidays.  Tourism practices are developing without their previous boundaries for new audiences allowing a broader role as both the user and provider of services and the challenges this may provide. Existing methods and delivery of tourism options are merging with new ideas, technology, community engagement and experiences.  From accommodation to communication, from business events to local events, from information centres to online information, the scene is set to change.  Out theme is Tourism:  It all adds up! Join the discussion.
