AIRTH track at ATLAS 2018 Copenhagen

AIRTH has been invited to collaborate with the Association for Tourism and Leisure Education and Research to provide a special track at "Destinations dynamics" ATLAS Annual Conference 2018 in Copenhagen (26 - 29 September).
We are happy to be part of this event as we believe that innovation and entrepreneurship are crucial for dynamic and sustainable destinations. We invite all interested participants to submit their abstracts should via the ATLAS website using the abstract form provided. Check important dates, abstract submission: March 1st, 2018.
Innovation is generally understood as an activity critical to the success of firms and destinations. Similarly, entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial initiatives, especially from small and medium-sized businesses, build the backbone of travel experiences at most tourism destinations. As such, both innovation and entrepreneurship are ideal themes to be discussed and elaborated under the ATLAS 2018 theme of “Destination Dynamics”. Indeed, innovation in destinations usually requires a combination of entrepreneurial spirit and inter-organizational relationships with stakeholders to develop and implement successful innovations. 
The interdisciplinary nature of tourism invites innovation and entrepreneurship opportunities from multiple sources. This special track centered on innovation and entrepreneurship is thus open to contributions from a broad academic field. As such we welcome submission that contribute to our understanding of innovation and entrepreneurship, that unravel “secrets of success”, that inform on failure, and that generally link innovation and entrepreneurship with sustainable destination development. Since we aim for such a broad set of contributions we believe that the below list of topics is not exhaustive, but rather, that it is understood as a first take to link innovation and entrepreneurship in tourism with sustainability.
Potential themes:
  • New service & product development
  • Innovation management
  • Business models
  • Co-creation with customers and stakeholders
  • Organizational setting enabling and facilitating innovation
  • Information technologies
  • Development of sustainable innovations
  • Destination and stakeholder networks
  • Contributions from various points of view are welcome (sociology, anthropology, business, geography etc.)
All abstracts will be subject to double-blind review by members of the scientific committee. Acceptance of a submission will be based on: theoretical and empirical significance; methodological soundness; relevance to the theme of the conference and logical clarity. The official language of the conference is English. Abstracts should be submitted via the ATLAS website using the abstract form provided.
Contributions to the innovation and entrepreneurship track will be reviewed by AIRTH members.
