Conference 2011

CAUTHE 2011 – 21st CAUTHE Conference

Theme: Tourism – Creating a Brilliant Blend
Date: 8 – 11 February 2011

The School of Management at the University of South Australia hosted the 21st CAUTHE annual conference for academics, scholars and government industry representatives in Adelaide. A PhD and ECR workshop was held prior to the conference on Monday 7 February.

Researchers were invited to submit papers examining aspects related to the notion of a brilliant blend, reflecting implications of the product and services mix needed by destinations to achieve optimum tourist experiences. Themes were sufficiently flexible and universal in their relevance and of interest to scholars throughout Australia and internationally.
