Our proposed theme for the conference is "Globalization and Tourism: Trends, Challenges, and Opportunities". This theme is particularly relevant in today's rapidly changing world, where businesses and destinations are facing new challenges and opportunities brought about by globalization, technological advancements, and changing consumer behavior.
We invite submissions of research papers, case studies, and panel proposals that address topics related to the theme, such as:
- Globalization and its impact on tourism destinations
- Cross-cultural issues in international tourism and hospitality
- Sustainability and responsible tourism practices in a global context
- Tourism policy and governance in the era of globalization
- Emerging trends and technologies in global tourism
The conference will provide a platform for scholars, practitioners, and policymakers to exchange ideas and best practices, and to network with colleagues from around the world. We are planning to include keynote speeches, panel discussions, and paper presentations, as well as social and networking events.
