3rd International Conference on Creative Tourism


The third International Conference of the CREATOUR project (Creative Tourism Destination Development in Small Cities and Rural Areas) will be held in Faro, in the Algarve region of Portugal, October 23-25, 2019. 

Entitled “Creative Tourism Dynamics: Connecting Travellers, Communities, Cultures, and Places”, the conference will promote knowledge sharing and reflection to better understand how to identify and reach creative travellers, how to better involve communities in the design and production of creative experiences, and how we can learn from initiatives being developed internationally.

The conference is organized by the Centre for Spatial and Organizational Dynamics (CIEO) - University of Algarve within the project CREATOUR. The overall objective of CREATOUR is to develop and pilot an integrated approach and research agenda for creative tourism in small cities and rural areas. It involves 5 research centres working in collaboration with 40 creative tourism ‘pilots’ located throughout the Norte, Centro, Alentejo, and Algarve regions.
