The purpose of this community is to create a common, open space for all professionals from the tourism and leisure sector. Here, they can share ideas and thoughts with colleagues from the same field and with others interested in the development of this important and dynamic sector. The exchange of ideas, lines of research, and studies on current issues that concern all directors in this sector will help members of the community to develop their careers, launch new initiatives and advance their organisations. Community members will have access to a broad variety of resources, including subject-specific forums and virtual meeting rooms. We want this community to become a worldwide reference point for all professionals in the sector, a hub of knowledge of tourism realities, and we believe the contributions of its members will make this possible.
