2016-Conference

Destinations are taking an increased interest in placemaking - the reimagining and reinvention of spaces at the heart of communities to strengthen the connection between people and places. Tourism researchers play a critical role in understanding what drives destination appeal and visitor engagement.

Submissions for presentations, papers, workshops, panels and student posters are invited relating to the overarching theme of Animating Places: Making Destinations Come Alive through Research. Submissions may be on a range of tourism related topics and the Conference Program Committee also encourages presentations on topics that are outside the general theme – our goal is to provide content that is relevant, timely and of interest to our members. Accepted submissions will be eligible for one of three non-monetary awards for best paper (refereed abstracts), best presentation (non-refereed) and best student poster. N.B. Deadline for submissions have been extended to June 8th, 2016
