ATLAS Africa and the Rwanda Tourism University College, the organizers of the 8th ATLAS Africa conference, invites various stakeholders in the tourism industry to this international conference, scheduled to take place from 3-5 June 2013 in Kigali, Rwanda.
In its strategic vision on the development of international tourism the Rwanda governments recognizes specific opportunities for the improvement of tourist facilities in general and further capitalization on the three main assets (bird watching, mountain gorilla viewing, and the national parks), as well as increasing the attraction for business travel and MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Congresses and Events). Therefore papers specifically dealing with these topics are welcomed.
More generally the conference offers a forum for knowledge exchange and debate on the role of African tourism in global society, attempting to evaluate its centrality as an agent of social change. Key questions may be asked about the relevance of African tourism to global society in general and Rwanda in particular, incorporating economic, cultural, social, political, environmental and ethical dimensions.
