Barron, Paul, Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Management


Welcome to Volume 10, Issue 2, of the Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Management. One of the aims of the Journal is to provide a link between the hospitality, tourism, leisure, travel and event industries and academia. As in previous years I have attempted to achieve this aim by using this mid-year issue of the Journal to disseminate research from recent academic conferences to a wider audience.

An understandable criticism of academic research, and the usefulness of the information generated, centres around the length of time research results take to filter through to industry. Academic conferences have traditionally been the forum where university academics present findings from recently completed research or present a synopsis of work completed to date in the form of "work in progress" abstracts. The focus of this issue is to develop a closer relationship between industry and academia through the publication of papers from two recent hospitality and tourism research conferences.

The first of these was the Council for Hospitality and Tourism Education (CAUTHE) 13th National Research Conference, which was held in Coifs Harbour in February this year. This conference represents the major gathering of hospitality and tourism academics in Australia. Coffs Harbour 2002 maintained this position and attracted 240 delegates from 14 countries. A record 66 fully refereed papers and 117 working paper and PhD abstracts were presented across all disciplines. At the conclusion of the conference, the Journal Editorial Board met to choose a representative sample of fully refereed papers and the first five articles in this issue are the result of extensive deliberations. These five articles represent a cross-section of the papers presented at the conference and demonstrate the diversity and quality of research being undertaken in Australia and overseas.

CAUTHE 2004 will take place in Brisbane and be hosted by the School of Tourism and Leisure Management at The University of Queensland. Further details and a call for papers can be found at http://www.cauthe.com.au

In an attempt to maintain links with Hospitality and Tourism research organisations overseas, this issue of the Journal also contains a selection of refereed articles from the 12th Council for Hospitality Management Education (CHME) conference. …
