Tourism Futures

World Travel Market, ExCeL, London,
Thursday 13th November2008
Room: North Gallery Room 6       11:00-13:00

International Tourism is changing rapidly globally. A number of key challenges and opportunities are emerging for both tourism destinations and suppliers around the world. This level of development requires a rethinking of both strategic and tactical Tourism Management. The Tourism Futures Forum will provide an insight into the future dimensions of the tourism industry. It examines major trends in tourism demand and supply and explores the strategic changes that lead to the international tourism industry restructuring. The Forum will be organised by University of Bournemouth tourism experts and will engage leading tourism practitioners from around the world on an interactive discussion. The University of Bournemouth in partnership with the World Travel Market and the TravelDailyNews are organising this forum to facilitate debate about the key strategic changes and to engage in a discussion about the successful response of the industry. The forum brings together leading academic and professional tourism experts to identify new trends as well as opportunities and challenges. The event will involve three research-based presentations to stimulate discussion. Chairman Prof Hemmington will encourage all participants to contribute to the debate and discussion.
