2022 Otago Tourism Policy School

Public, Undergraduate students, Postgraduate students, Staff
Event type
Conference, Online

This is an annual forum that brings together a wide array of tourism academics, business leaders, policy communities, industry organisations and other interested parties to discuss and debate key challenges and opportunities confronting the tourism industry in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The Tourism Policy School opening address is delivered by the Minister of Tourism, and discussion is informed by invited keynote speakers and panel discussants.

The 2022 Tourism Policy School will have as its theme “Structural Change for Regenerative Tourism”, to reflect the view of the Minister of Tourism that structural change is required to rebuild tourism for the 21st century following the global pandemic. This theme recognises that the term “regenerative tourism” has been widely used since the advent of the pandemic, but lacks rigour of definition and conceptualisation, which is required to inform structural change before the energy behind the rhetoric dissipates.

The Tourism Policy School will be organised into four sessions that will address the cultural/philosophical, environmental, social and economic dimensions of regenerative tourism.

The 2022 Tourism Policy School and Public Lecture will be entirely online, from 4pm on Thursday 24 to 4.30pm on Friday 25 March 2022.
