World Sports Tourism Congress

The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and the Catalan Tourist Board (Agència Catalana de Turisme) are organizing the World Sports Tourism Congress which will take place from 25-26 November 2021, in Lloret de Mar, Catalonia, Spain.

The World Sports Tourism Congress’ Scientific Committee (Chaired by Professor Terry Stevens, Managing Director of Stevens & Associates in Wales) would now like to invite academics, researchers, and industry practitioners to submit their thoughts on innovative ideas and future research topics in the form of thought-provoking essays and posters for its consideration.

The role of the Scientific Committee is to stretch the thinking and move the future agenda in different directions. As a result, the Scientific Committee agrees that its special session during the Congress should move away from the traditional form of academic papers and, instead, encourage new ways of presenting innovative ideas, creative thinking, and research proposals.

The Scientific Committee is keen to stress that no one is excluded from making a submission. In the first instance, the submissions should be in a written format, HOWEVER the Committee is open to suggestions as to how the ideas can be presented in their final format during the Congress (this could include a podcast, video or other new media).

Details of how to submit your essays and posters is set out in this PDF document. Closing date for submissions is 30th June 2021.
