How do tourism and entrepreneurship intersect? Tourism can empower communities. Entrepreneurship can facilitate that empowerment through identifying opportunities for the growth of the tourism industry. Together, tourism and entrepreneurship have the power to transform local communities.
Tourism is one of the world’s fastest growing industries. Many countries see it as an exciting avenue for development. It can bring revenue and employment to areas that may struggle to support other industries. But uncontrolled tourism brings with it a set of problems, including environmental destruction.
This event will focus on four topics:
- Entrepreneurship and Tourism
- Disruption in the Tourism Industry
- Opportunities in the Tourism Industry
Our featured keynote speaker is Dr. Kristin M. Lamoureux, Associate Dean, Tisch Center for Hospitality and Tourism and Associate Clinical Professor of Tourism, New York University School of Professional Studies. Dr. Lamoureux , a noted scholar specializing in tourism and economic development, has been a distinguished and accomplished expert in professional and academic education for nearly 20 years.
