In order to ensure the long-term sustainability of tourism in different countries and destinations, it is vital to examine and analyse emerging trends in today’s international tourism industry.
International Tourism Futures: The Drivers and Impacts of Change examines influential factors such as the demographic, political, economic and technological changes, which will affect the nature, trends and participation in tourism, hospitality and events. It discusses contemporary concepts associated with the tourism, hospitality and event sector, generating plausible ideas and identifying future trends. The COVID-19 crisis outbreak reinforces the vulnerability of the international tourism industry operating as an open system and some of these impacts of change on future industry development are highlighted.

A multi-disciplinary text, International Tourism Futures: The Drivers and Impacts of Change covers a range of inter-related trends which include:
• Tourists of the Future
• Hospitality of the Future
• The Future of Visitor Attractions
• Events of the Future
• The Future of Film Tourism
• Health and Wellness Tourism
• Sustainable Development and Responsible Tourism
• Future Proofing a Crisis
• Building Future Scenarios

Using a considered pedagogic structure, each chapter uses international case studies to contextualise the theory, including: Chinese outbound travel, the ‘personalisation’ of the travel experience, robotic hospitality in Asia, the 2028 LA Summer Olympics, Wellness Spa Tourism in Thailand, France’s ‘International Action Against Terrorism’ initiative and many more.

This research textbook is perfect for tourism, hospitality and event education and courses that focus on the future direction of the T,H and E sectors and industry in general.
