  • Abstracts will be reviewed by the conference scientific committee for quality and suitability to the conference themes.


  • All accepted abstracts will be posted on this website once the presentations program has been confirmed.




Due to limited space at the conference venue, this meeting is limited to 100 participants, including both domestic (China) and international delegates. In the event that more than 100 registrations are receiived, conference organizers will need to be selective.  


Preference will be given to high quality abstracts that are appropriate to the conference themes, abstracts that have been submitted early (well before the due date), and support and participation by presenters for past conferences in the China Tourism Conferences series.  


We apologize in advance if your paper and registration are not selected.


  • A combination of a special edition of Tourism Geographies (for some papers) and a post-conference book (for more papers) is planned for papers for the conference. All participants are encouraged to submit papers for this journal/book publication project. Journal submissions will undergo a double blind review process.  The conference secretariat will make final decisions on which papers to accept for the book.
