Since 2013, The International Conferences on Hospitality and Tourism Management (ICOHT), were well attended and hugely successful. This much sought-after, annual scholarly event is now ranked as a premier international forum for the presentation of new advances and research results in the fields of tourism and hospitality management. This conference brings together tourism and hospitality industry leaders, educators, researchers, and scholars from around the world.

Papers jointly written by industry leaders and academics are preferred for this conference, as industry-academia collaboration is powerful in finding practical and innovative solutions to the challenges. All conference papers will be published in the conference proceedings e-book and the ICOHT 2022 Book of Abstracts. In addition, conference papers will have the opportunity in being chosen for publishing in reputed peer-reviewed academic journals.
