The School of Tourism at Bournemouth University is a world-leader in tourism research and a leading provider of degree courses uniquely focused on the environmental, economic, social and cultural impacts. We are experts in the contemporary tourism sector, encompassing hospitality, retail, leisure, sports and events. Most of our graduates get jobs as soon as they leave the University and our alumni are working for companies and organisations throughout the world.
We are using our global tourism training, consultancy and research expertise as part of a forum to discuss tourism futures at the WTM. You can book to participate in the forum here.
This BU Tourism Futures Forum will engage leading tourism practitioners from around the world in an interactive discussion about the future of tourism. We think that tourism managers will require genuine innovation to thrive against a backdrop of geo-political change, economic pressures, new technology, exponential growth in new markets and rising costs of food, fuel and energy. We believe these shifts call for a major rethinking of tourism management and that the forum and our presence at WTM 2011 will allow us to share expertise and participate in the growing discussion. The forum will benefit managers from all spheres of tourism and travel and those who have an interest in the future of the industry.
Bournemouth University has an amazing talent pool of undergraduates, postgraduates and world leading experts. At WTM 2011 the School is offering the tourism and travel industry a brand new opportunity to engage with this talent pool for the pick of placement students, consultancy, research, continuing professional development and bespoke training.
