The Heritage, Tourism and Hospitality, International Conferences are an initiative of Frank Go, professor emeritus Tourism Management of the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University, and Karin Elgin-Nijhuis, managing director of consultancy Elgin & Co., Netherlands.

The conferences, focus on the leading question: “How can tourism destinations succeed in attracting tourists while simultaneously engaging all stakeholders in contributing to the preservation of natural and cultural heritage?”

The conferences offer a unique forum for attendees from academia, industry, government, and other organisations to share knowledge and experience. The conference agenda is designed to be practitioner-friendly while offering room for critical reflection on heritage and tourism practices and institutions.

The conferences are is of great value to those working for destination management and marketing organisations (DMOs), ministries of tourism, city governments, economic development agencies, designers, technology providers and researchers and practitioners working in fields such as heritage, tourism, hospitality, marketing, archaeology, architecture and geography.
