This conference will bring together a diverse mix of participants who have researched and embraced innovative tourism strategies and partnerships. These include municipal and national government officials; practitioners responsible for regional development; tourism, culture and heritage operators; community volunteers; and academics and graduate students involved in rural tourism research.

Through the four interrelated themes - Community, Experience, Economy and Environment - and a highly participatory programme the conference will critically explore strategic opportunities for innovative, yet concrete and practical solutions for sustainable rural tourism.
