2015: Hosts, workers and guests: servicing and accessing tourism

We are very pleased to welcome you to the Tourism Students' Virtual Conference 2015 during which we seek to explore the social, cultural and political dimensions of tourism in the early 21st century. We will debate the current critical issues in tourism across four conference strands:

  • Inclusion, exclusion and unequal participation in tourism;
  • Life behind the scenes: the worker perspective of the tourism world;
  • To host or not to host: Conflict of values between residents and tourists;
  • Tourism de-marketing: When a destination is overcrowded. We hope you enjoy the sharing of ideas and exchanging of opinions.
