49th Annual TTRA International Conference
Miami/Coral Gables, Florida: June 26 – 28, 2018
Abstract Deadline: January 21, 2018

The Academic Paper Co-Chairs, Drs. Jonathon Day and Aaron Tham, invite academic submissions for the 2018 Annual International Conference of the Travel and Tourism Research Association.

Join us in Miami/Coral Gables, Florida, at the historic Biltmore – Coral Gables, to share forward-thinking, cutting-edge tourism research. Our program will explore the future of tourism research and examine new tools for understanding our complex challenges. As we prepare for the Twenty Twenties, our program will also consider the skills needed for the successful tourism researcher of the coming decade. Bringing together thought leaders from industry and academia, this conference will provide important insights on the future of tourism research.

The central theme of the conference is “Encouraging innovation in the universe of tourism research”. Both conceptual and empirical papers are encouraged relating to the broadly defined sub-themes:

  • Innovation and Smart, Sustainable Destinations
  • Disruptive Technology and Radical Innovation
  • New Insights and Innovative research on consumer behavior
While authors are encouraged to submit articles addressing these themes, any papers related to current issues in tourism or tourism research will be considered. We welcome articles using quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods approaches.
