      Following the third expert meeting in Shimla in 2008, the Backpacker Research Group (BRG) is due to hold the fourth symposium, scheduled for September 2010 at Hermanus, Western Cape, South Africa. The overall conference aim is to examine how the independent travel market has responded to recent economic, social, political and environmental changes. The timing of the conference potentially allows delegates to also attend the International Geographical Union (IGU) conference to be held in Stellenbosch, South Africa 5th-8th September 2010 with the theme of Global Change and Economic Crisis in Tourism.
