TSVC | Tourism Students Virtual Conference

2012 - The many faces of the global tourism experience in the 21st century

Welcome Wolverhampton and Lincoln tourism students, as well as other visitors! Our virtual conference is now well-established as a highlight of final year tourism studies, a forum for the discussion of ideas, of pushing boundaries, of critical questions - and hopefully, some solutions. This year, in line with our theme, we are inviting you to explore these key questions:

  • What factors shape our desire to travel?
  • How do an uncertain security environment and its attendant risks affect tourist behaviour?
  • Can tourists help to create world peace? Who determines what an 'authentic' experience is?
  • How do issues of class, race, age and gender affect access to tourism?
  • Can access to tourism be made fairer?
  • How do tourists 'read' artistic productions on holiday?

This is bound to be an exciting conference - we urge you to explore all the conference stands to find out what you and your colleagues are saying about these issues.
