 ATLAS SIG meeting Events and Cultural Tourism - ONLINE

After giving thorough consideration to the present and future Covid-19 situation, it has been decided that the meeting in Edinburgh will unfortunately not take place face to face. It is still uncertain whether it will safe enough or possible for everybody to travel to the meeting this October. However, the good news is that we will be organizing the meeting online! The online meeting will take place on Thursday October 22, 2020. More information HERE.

 ATLAS supports Tourism From Zero

Recent weeks and last years’ overtourism issues showed us both the benefits, the relevance, and the limits of the tourism, hospitality and leisure industries for society. At this point, we cannot foresee the future, but we can listen to challenges and start developing solutions.


 ATLAS annual conference 2020 in Prague POSTPONED

The ATLAS Annual Conference, scheduled to be hosted by AMBIS in Prague, 8-11 September 2020 has been POSTPONED to 7-10 September 2021. Due to the continued uncertainties surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19) and its potential impact on people’s health, combined with travel restrictions, changes to academic workloads and on-going doubts about when this crisis will abate, we believe that POSTPONING the conference is the right decision. This decision has been made after conversations with the conference organising team at AMBIS in Prague and the Chair, co-Chair and support of the ATLAS Board. Click HERE for more information.
