TSVC | Tourism Students Virtual Conference

2011 - Global tourists and the changing nature of the vacation experience

Among the issues that delegates will be debating during this year's Virtual Conference are: the factors that shape our desire to travel; the risks of travelling in an uncertain security environment; the role that tourists can play in facilitating peace; what an 'authentic' tourist experience might be; how issues of class, race, gender, age and disability affect access to tourism; whether tourism can be made a fairer experience for all participants; and how tourists make sense of the environments in which they find themselves on their global travels. This is an exciting range of questions - we hope the conference will stimulate thought, discussion and ideas for further research!
