Global Experiences in Tourism

Proceedings of the International Competence Network of Tourism Management (ICNT)

Series:

Christian Eilzer, Wolfgang Georg Arlt and Bernd Eisenstein

This book «Global Experiences in Tourism – Proceedings of the International Competence Network of Tourism Management (ICNT)» brings together texts from tourism experts from a number of countries and continents. Published in Germany but based on the input from two conferences of the International Competence Network of Tourism Management (ICNT) in Mexico and South Africa, the book reflects the variety of topics and issues in today's global tourism and the different ways of addressing them.
Quantitative studies for instance on travel behavior and destination images are sitting next to qualitative studies on internet usage and culture tourism; modern developments show their positive potential for instance in using special forms of GIS in Iceland but also their destructive force for instance in the mix-up of traditional festivals with commerce-driven globalized Ersatz-culture as in the case of the fight between the Día de Los Muertos and Halloween in Mexico.
