Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nobody doubts the importance of tourism in the global economy and the effect it has on the economic, social and environmental development of the regions where it is present. It should be noted that tourism activity is developed with the participation of companies with different types of activity (accommodation, transportation, catering, etc.), of different sizes—local and international—in different and changing social and environmental environments and under the control of public organizations with a very different degree of intervention. In addition, all this is intended to serve a type of customer that may be most heterogeneous. All this makes the management of tourism a highly complex task, either at the level of destinations or at the level of companies. The purpose of this Special Issue is to publish an article of empirical research and theoretical high quality reviews that approaches specific tourism problems. Thus, the articles may address issues that consider tourism from a general perspective, from the point of view of tourist destinations, from the perspective of the companies that operate in the sector, and from the point of view of the final recipient of the service, the tourist.
