It is great pleasure for us to invite you to participate in the third International Rural Tourism and Development Congress” which will be held in Bodrum,Turkey from 13 to 16 June 2019 and organized by Nobel Science and Research Center and Mugla Sıtkı Koçman University.
Rural Tourism is already an important part of the European tourism sector. But many assets and resources for recreation in rural areas are yet not used, or remain undetected. IRTAD-2019 is organised around the major theme of rural tourism. Additionally, it aims to provide an opportunity for researchers to answer some of the challenges in the development of tourism, and to outline new solutions for developing it. The main theme includes interrelated issues, each of them calling for a variety of disciplinary approaches.
The Conference will be divided into substantive sessions, providing the opportunity to focus on specific areas from their own prospective and national experiences.
The Conference aims to bring together academic scientists, researchers, research scholars and professionals, in order to exchange and share their experiences and research results related to the aspects of tourism.
The conference will be a great opportunity for academics from a range of disciplines and countries to share their research; to receive informal in-depth feedback through discussions and to establish contact with professionals in other countries and institutions
So, we invite you to contribute with papers and presentations, in the International Rural Tourism and Development Congress.
In addition to our conference scientific sessions, we would like to invite you to visit Bodrum, Turkey and see various tourism phenomena and rich natural heritage and cultural monuments.
