Recent developments in various fields such as technology, environmental issues, tourism supply and demand, emergence of new destinations, globalisation of the tourism industry, innovative management approaches, designing and marketing visitor experiences, story-telling and many others, are having a major impact on tourism, travel and hospitality! Achieving and sustaining success in the future, either in the private or the public sector, is a major challenge for all tourism stakeholders. The search for success in the ever-changing tourism industry is always with us, and its impacts are of critical importance for tourism, travel and hospitality management and education.

Any stakeholder in tourism, travel & hospitality, and any industry practitioner, educator or researcher, is facing vital questions like:
• How to prepare for the future?
• How to manage the future?
• How to survive in the future?
• How to sustain development and growth?
• How to research for the future?
