You can view all the presentations from the 2008 ITSA conference in Shanghai, including mine, by going to this web page. The theme of the conference was ‘Globalisation, mega events and urban tourism’ and there are a wealth of useful case studies, theoretical perspectives and non-western viewpoints on tourism and events available to download as powerpoint files – some in English and some in Mandarin Chinese. Unfortunately, the files are listed alphanumerically, so you might have to have a dig through to find material you are particularly interested in.
The presentations from the excellent ‘Developing tourist destinations’ seminar held in Aalborg last month will be up on the conference webpages soon along with pictures and I’ll post an update on here when they are available. In the meantime, you can view my presentation below:
