ATLAS Congress Tourism Transformations

Special track name: "Managing congestion in urban spaces"

 

Next ATLAS Annual Congress (Association for the teaching and research of tourism and free time) takes place on September 17th - 20th in Girona, its topic is "Tourism Transformations". In the congress, the MINECO project will address the management of tourism congestion in urban spaces, with the participation of Dr. Núria Galí, Dr. Esther Martínez and Dr. José Antonio Donaire of the University of Girona.  

 

One of the most common problems in urban management is the tourismcongestion of urban spaces, either regularly or occasionally, at different times of the day or of the year. Managers of historical monuments, tourism promotion organizations, private companies, residents, municipalities and other tourism stakeholders need urban strategies that identify and manage the impacts that spatial-temporal congestion generates on tourists’ behaviour and on the tourist experience. 

Issues to be identified and managed relate to, among others, the design of tools for the management of space-time vector for improving the visit, create better spatial-temporal distribution of the tourist flows, relieve saturated spaces and transfer visitor flows to less frequented areas. All of them are vital for the social and economic sustainability of urban tourism.

Included themes in this Special Track are:

 

·Tourist's behavior in congested places

·New methodologies formonitorig tourist in

·Overtourism perception

·Effects of overcrowding in small areas
