Tourism in transition economies – Issues and challenges for destination competitiveness

Conference conveners invite researchers and practitioners to share their research, expertise, and perspectives in order to shed more light upon the issues that countries with a transition economy face in the context of tourism.

This is an opportunity to explore the internal and external factors that facilitate or constrain the sustainable development of tourism.

We would like contributions that address public sector and policy making, private business and entrepreneurship, as well as education and training.

The conference aims at understanding how innovation and activities in these sectors all combine and contribute to achieve tourism destination competitiveness and productivity, either at the national or regional level.

The conference will be designed to facilitate exchange and discussions. Conference presentations will therefore be kept short and moderators will encourage active participation by attendees and discussion with presenters.
