Academia meets industry

We would like to introduce you to our new initiative, building relationships between Academia and the Tourism Industry.

It is our aim to remain at the cutting edge of research and get to know in-depth more about the work being conducted by PHD researchers in the leading tourism and marketing schools around the world. We are looking to interview leading PHD researchers face-to-face about their work and spread this to the industry by featuring these interviews on our platform,

The interviews will be conducted as a special feature at the Digital Tourism Think Tank stand at WTM London between 4th and 6th November this year, and will be ongoing on several different events. We would like to invite you to nominate your students for this opportunity and to extend partnerships between Academia and the industry.

In order to put out a nomination, please let PHD researchers provide us with a 500 word synopsis of the research including 5 key conclusions. After confirmation of our team we will then invite the researcher for an interview and spread the word to the industry. Interviews can be conducted in person at one of our events, or online.

If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity do not hesitate to get in touch today and submit your synopsis now. For more information and/or to send your application please contact

We are looking forward to your nominations and to interviewing talented researchers from around the world!
