International Conference on
“Contemporary Research in Tourism and Hospitality: Theory, Practice and Pitfalls”
On behalf of the organisers (cc), I am glad to inform you that we have received the confirmation from another outstanding keynote speaker from the United Nations HQ in New York for this international conference. As mentioned in the first call for abstracts, the UNEP’s Global Partnership for Sustainable Tourism also confirmed a keynote presentation at the conference. We have an excellent line-up of international speakers and all their biographies are presented in the conference website: http://www.pondiuni.edu.in/conferences/tourism/crth2014/key-note.php
The conference organisers invite extended abstracts from established scholars, early-career researchers as well as PhD students – before the 30th September 2013.
This four-day conference will also involve publishers, tourism authorities and the tourism and hospitality industry representatives providing an excellent opportunity for networking and to share your research findings. The objective of this important conference is to exchange and debate ‘contemporary research’ in tourism, events and hospitality domains by inviting researchers around the world for the first time to Pondicherry, a famous tourist destination.

Chennai is around 140kms from Pondicherry (approx. 2 ½ hrs. journey).
