Welcome to IATE

This booklet includes the papers registered for presentation at the 6th Conference of the IATE - International Association for Tourism Economics, hosted by the University of Bologna, Rimini Campus, between June the 20th and June the 23rd, 2017. Overall 199 submissions have been received, each one reviewed by 2 anonymous referees. Net of rejections - withdrawn papers and authors who could not attend the conference - this scientific programme includes 145 papers, 3 invited talks and one round table. The Conference - which builds upon the previous editions held in University of Balearic Islands (Spain, 2007), Chiang Mai University (Thailand, 2009), Bournemouth University (United Kingdom, 2011), University of Ljubljana (Slovenia, 2013) and Hong Kong Polytechnic University (Hong Kong, 2015) - has been co-organized by the Department of Economics and the Centre for Advanced Studies in Tourism - CAST of the University of Bologna. CAST is an interdepartmental research centre that was instituted and activated in February 2014 by the University of Bologna at the Campus of Rimini, in order to foster advanced scientific research and professional training in the tourism field. It is participated by the departments of: Economics, Management, Statistics, Life Quality Studies. Paolo Figini Chair of the 6th Conference of the IATE

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the foundation of the International Association for Tourism Economics, an association set up by three founding universities (the University of Balearic Islands, the University of Cagliari and the University of Nottingham) to contribute to the advancement of tourism economics. It is therefore very fitting that as we celebrate this tenth anniversary, the IATE conference returns to Europe, and to a university that has a strong reputation in tourism economics. The conference programme includes keynote presentations by IATE’s first two presidents: Eugeni Aguiló (2007-2009) and Larry Dwyer (2009-2013) and a concluding session on the first ten years of the association. While the anniversary is an opportunity to look back at what the association has done, it is also a great time to look forward to the next ten years! Adam Blake IATE President
