"ASEAN – Sustainable Connectivity, Boundless Prosperity"

ASEAN Tourism Research Conference 2018

 28-29 January 2018  |  Prince of Songkla University, Phuket  | Thailand

Conference Theme

The ASEAN Tourism Research Association Conference (ATRAC) 2018 reflects the Thai’s government emphasis on awareness of ASEAN as a community of opportunity and people-centeredness for a better livelihood under the mechanism of sustainable development. The connection of all aspects aim to create the economic and social opportunities for locals. That would lead to the reduction of development gap between all ASEAN member countries. Furthermore, the opportunities given to border regions are the consequences of connectivity and the development of cross-border tourism integration.

The ASEAN Tourism Research Association Conference (ATRC) is open to academics from all walks of life, regardless of disciplinary background or affiliation. Researchers are invited to present in the form of research papers, or posters. We recognise that there are a number of different ways in which research can be communicated. We welcome all types of presentations that address issues related to tourism in the ASEAN region, in terms of quality of services and standards, enhancement of tourism products and infrastructure, connectivity as well as issues related to the quality of life and opportunities for the community through responsible and sustainable tourism development.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Phuket!

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Prathana Kannaovakun, Conference Chair
