Details: As part of 2012, a potentially significant year for tourism in Northern Ireland, the Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management, at the University of Ulster, plays host to an International Conference on Tourism and Events: Opportunities, Impacts and Change.The conference will take place in the four star Europa Hotel, Belfast between June 20 and 22. The conference will incorporate the 2012 Tourism and Hospitality Research in Ireland Conference (THRIC).
Conference Aims and Scope
The conference takes place in 2012 and this year is significant for hallmark and one time occurring events. London is host to the Summer Olympic Games; Northern Ireland as a destination looks to leverage from the wider impact and legacy of the games. Belfast, the host city where the conference will take place commemorates in April 2012 the 100th anniversary of the launch and tragic sinking of the Titanic, as well as the signing of the Ulster League and Solemn Covenant. These events will generate different levels of response both locally and internationally, in terms of the extent to which leverage can occur and the legacy they leave. The interrelationships that exist between tourism and event hosting are important to destinations and their Destination Management Organisations. This conference is designed to bring together leading academic scholars with industry practitioners in an open forum of keynote lectures, industry panel discussions, individual paper presentations in a number of concurrent sessions in which a wide range of issues and challenges facing tourism and events are debated and where best practice can be disseminated between academia and industry.
