 International Summit: Shifting gears in tourism and hospitality in a time of crisis
 
 For more information about the summit, please visit: http://tourism-summit.org

 

The unprecedented COVID19 health crisis has brought the world to a standstill, and tourism has been the worst affected of all major economic sectors. However, even if COVID19 has brought tourism to uncharted waters, our knowledge from previous crises shows that the industry can quickly recover and return to normality. A precondition of this is to regain the holiday intention of visitors, also taking under consideration that in travel, tourism and hospitality, destinations and organisations need to gain the highest possible resilience when facing inevitable crises and disasters.

The Summit welcomes theoretical, empirical, experimental, and case study research contributions. These contributions should clearly address the theoretical and practical implications of the research in reference. The proposed topics can include but are not limited to the following: 

  • Risk and crisis management
  • Disaster and crisis management operations
  • Crisis management communications
  • Tourism, hospitality, events and aviation resilience management
  • Destination resilience and crisis resolution
