This 13th Asia Tourism Forum is being jointly organized by Tourism and Hospitality Management Institute (ESTHUA) of University of Angers and Hong Kong Polytechnic University, In Angers, France.

This edition wish to envisage the new Asian tourism. First, in the top international tourist destinations in Asia, the Asian waves involve numerous adaptations of the tourist sector. Then, Asian Tourism is now globalized and spreads far away from the borders of Asia. In France for example, it already changed the face of tourism. There is so a globalization of tourism, beyond its historic homes that are Europe and North America. The former borders of tourism are pushed away, as well as new ones appear and move on. Thus, we have to analyse this globalized tourism, and that’s why the title of the conference is: «tourism in a global era». And that’s also why we organize this forum in France, one of the oldest tourism foyer in the world, that lots of tourists from Asia visit today.

We thus wish to dedicate a Forum to this question, about the spreads of tourism in a globalized era. At first to better understand the practices of the tourists coming from Asia, their behaviours, their tastes. But also to analyse the strategies of the enterprises, which innovate for these clienteles, in the field of the events, of the food service, the media and the social networks. And still many more aspects of these new tendencies of Asian tourism.
