Alghero, Italy, October 2nd - 5th 2016

Conference Re-Cap


Ciao! Thank you all for attending the first Tourism Naturally conference. We hope that you enjoyed your time with us in Alghero, Italy and think that you will agree that the historical center of Alghero proved to be a unique and memorable venue, complete with incredible views and traditional Italian cuisine in the small and charming seaside city. With your help, we pulled off a lively conference where participants provided perspectives on ecological integrity and tourism industry sustainability.

Tourism Naturally was an international gathering of 150+ academic and industry professionals from 28 countries. The plenary track theme this year was Coastal and Mountain Systems and the conference offered sessions ranging from tourism theory and methodology to wellness tourism and tourism and conservation.

The 2017 Tourism Naturally conference will take place in Vienna, Austria and will be hosted by the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna and the Ludwig-Maximilans-University of Munich, in partnership with Colorado State University, University of Derby, and Central China University. Stay tuned for more information!
