D7. Modelling and managing tourism demand

The session focuses on modelling and managing international and domestic tourism demand. As environmental, political, and economic events affect international tourism, which has important consequences on economic diversification, employment and foreign exchange earnings, tourism demand should be modelled and managed sensibly. Empirical research and development of tourism demand is vital for marketing and policy formulation. Papers in the empirical analysis of international tourism demand are invited in time series modelling, economic modelling, model selection and evaluation, estimation procedures, forecasting and associated applications in modelling and managing tourism demand, using high frequency and ultra high frequency data.
