BU Tourism Futures Forum @ WTM2013

November 6, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Bournemouth University tourism experts organise again the BU Tourism Futures Forum @ WTM2013 and engage leading tourism practitioners from around the world on an interactive discussion to examine the future of tourism. The global challenges and opportunities for both tourism destinations and suppliers around the world require innovation in management and operations, calling for a major rethinking of both strategic and tactical Tourism Management. The Tourism Futures Forum will provide an insight into the future dimensions of the tourism industry. It examines major trends in tourism demand and supply and explores the strategic changes that lead to the international tourism industry restructuring. The Forum will be organised by The University of Bournemouth in partnership with the World Travel Market and the TravelDailyNews are organising this forum to facilitate debate about the key strategic changes and to engage in a discussion about the successful response of the industry. The event will involve two short research-based presentations to stimulate discussion. Chairman ProfDimitrios Buhalis will encourage all participants to contribute to the debate and discussion.
