Call For Papers

We are pleased to announce that the 4th International Tourism Congress will be held in Eskisehir, Turkey between October 16 - 19, 2019 and is hosted by Anadolu University. The theme of the congress will be URBAN TOURISM. Urban dimension of tourism has been scrutinized from different angles notably since the 1990s. Even though ‘tourist cities’ may not be distinctly demarcated from the other types since cities are multifunctional, tourism is a salient feature of most cities that penetrates the daily life. Thus, tourism activities induce a wide range of opportunities and predicaments in cities. Examination of these relations involves management, planning and marketing practices, and inspection of their sociocultural reflections.Therefore, the goal of the congress is to thoroughly examine contemporary urban tourism issues, stimulate dialogue, and develop new perspectives in the field of tourism within the globalized environment. The congress invites conceptual, empirical, and methodological research papers, and destination context case studies on different urban tourism themes. Papers and presentations are expected to address both the theoretical, methodological, and practical aspects of urban tourism. English is the official language of the congress. As such, the 4th International Tourism Congress will provide a unique forum for attendees from academia, industry, government, and other organizations to actively exchange, share, and challenge state-of-the-art research and cases on urban tourism.
