      2050 - TOMORROW'S TOURISM

      Ian Yeoman (Victoria University of Wellington)

       

      Any attempt to predict the future is a journey into the unknown. On this adventure the reader will be continuously engaged, intrigued, exhilarated and occasionally irritated by the unexpected connections and extrapolations, but will never be jaded or bored on this breathtaking roller coaster ride into the future.

      Gregory Ashworth, University of Groningen, The Netherlands

       

      This book constructs scenarios from Shanghai to Edinburgh, Seoul to California encompassing complex topics such as human trafficking, conferences, transport, food tourism or technological innovation. This is a blue skies thinking book about the future of tourism and a thought provoking analytical commentary.
