Call for Papers for the 10th ITSA Biennial Conference 2024

We are glad to release the Call for Papers for the 10th International Tourism Studies Association (ITSA) Biennial Conference that will be organised from 17–20 Sept, 2024, in #Riga and in association with Vidzemes Augstskola / Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences.

The conference will serve as a nexus for academia, industry professionals, and researchers to explore and deliberate upon pivotal themes shaping the contemporary tourism landscape. The overarching theme of the conference is intricately woven around three key dimensions:  

  • safety and security,  
  • changes in traveler behavior, and  
  • the imperative of circularity in tourism.  

These critical facets demand concerted attention from educators, researchers, and industry practitioners alike. Through collaborative efforts, we aim to bridge the existing gaps in tourism knowledge and practice, propelling us toward a future marked by Sustainable, Smart, and Secure tourism and hospitality. In alignment with this vision, the conference is aptly titled “Bridging the Gaps in Tourism Knowledge and Practice: The Future of Sustainable, Smart, and Secure Tourism and Hospitality (Future 3Ss for Tourism).”
