50th Annual TTRA International Conference
Melbourne, Australia, 25 – 27 June 2019
Join us in Melbourne, Australia, for TTRA International’s 50th conference. A cultural mecca, Melbourne also lays claim to the sporting and events capital of the country, providing a fitting and vibrant atmosphere to showcase travel and tourism research. Over the course of the conference, we will navigate the terrain of shifting sands – reflecting not only the great Australian deserts and coastline, but also the influence of the external global environment on international tourism trends.
Our keynote speakers are giants in their fields – one in tourism economics and social enterprise, while the other has an environmental/climate change background, an area that affects tourism deeply. They are world leaders, and we are thrilled that they are joining us for the TTRA conference in 2019. Both will be involved in special sessions as well as presenting their Keynote addresses:
Prof Tim Flannery, world-renowned Paleontologist and Climate Change scientist
Prof Pauline Sheldon, University of Hawaii and TTRA Lifetime Achievement Award Winner
Do not miss out on this opportunity to contribute to a global association and present your contemporary narratives at an international conference that has been bringing together researchers from agencies, destinations, the industry and academia since its inception.
While we have identified a range of key themes (details to follow) and two outstanding Keynote Speakers, we are happy to consider any additional proposals for special sessions or workshops, particularly from the DMO/Practitioners’ perspective. Please email conference chair Sue Beeton at firstname.lastname@example.org with your proposal.
Further Information will be available on the conference website: https://ttra.com
