Sport Tourism Research Topics

Do travelers using low-cost airlines spend more at the destination? Do investments/public subsidies into tourism reduce poverty to a larger extent compared to those in agriculture? What effect do visa restrictions have on tourism sector impact on GDP? Do exchange rate volatilities and the economic crisis affect tourism demand in certain destination countries?

These were the questions discussed at the International Conference of the International Association for Tourism Economics this July in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Four MODUL University faculty members, Prof. Andreas Zins, Prof. Egon Smeral, Asst. Prof. Irem Önder and Researcher and Lecturer Bozana Zekan attended this conference where more than 130 scholars from 33 countries of all continents met for four days.

Prof. Zins presented two topics: first, an investigation into repeat visit behavior and probability by the example of international travelers to Portugal using Ehrenberg’s Theorem and second, the development of an innovative measure of city destination attractiveness using revealed and stated preferences for almost 100 European cities and the application of the exchangeability measure for city destinations proposed by Prof. Martin Lohmann.

Asst. Prof. Önder presented a study that she conducted together with Prof. Smeral about identifying the most appropriate univariate forecasting method using monthly data to estimate tourism demand in Vienna.

Ms. Zekan presented her ongoing PhD research about benchmarking the performance of city tourism organizations. In the absence of a generalizable model of which factors contribute most to the competitiveness and success of a destination, this investigation tries to find consistent answers from the destination managers’ perspective.

This latter question is such a focal point for the tourism sector and particularly to policymakers related to tourism, that the conference organizers opened the conference with the first keynote speaker, Ms. Thea Chiesa, head of Aviation, Travel and Tourism Industries of the World Economic Forum (WEF) who spoke on the “Challenges of developing 2013 T&TC index and implications for destination competitiveness”.

Alot. And for the record, we did not ban all guns.

twenty-nine per cent of Canadian homes possess an estimated total of nine million firearms. Other authorities insist that even this figure is too low, and that there is at least twenty million firearms in Canada. The UN reported that Canada ranks third among the developed western countries (behind the United States and Norway) in the civilian ownership of firearms.
There is an average of three firearms in every gun-owning Canadian household. The majority of gun-owning households in Canada own rifles and/or shotguns; on a per capita basis, Canadians own nearly as many rifles as Americans

Sports Tourism Research Report

  • Avatar jonathan America VS Australia?
    Sep 08, 2013 by jonathan | Posted in Other - Environment

    America has larger and more diverse economy
    America has better universities
    America has more immigrants and tourism
    America has better people(more friendly)
    America is the financial center of the world
    America has number 1 military
    America has more geographic …Australia has universal healthcare
    Australia has less crime
    Australia has better education
    Australia has better transportation but it could be argued America has better transportation due to NYC, Chicago, Boston, Philly and such.


    Which country is better?

    • Everything does not have to be a competition. Why pit one against the other while they are different and still have such good things. Watch some sports if you want to pick a team. blech.

  • Avatar Jessica M Me and my cousin want to live in Australia, we just dont know what part.?
    Feb 22, 2008 by Jessica M | Posted in Other - Australia

    I think the longest were gonna stay is 4-6 months, we want a nicer place to stay that wont cost us a lot of money, we'll be getting small jobs and we want some where closer to a city.

    • Melbourne, is great, its a big city and has heaps of things to do, you will never be bored and its not too expensive.
