Smart Community tourism

Smart Community Tourism (SCoT), a monthly webinar series, is designed to broadcast the seldom-heard voices of the neglected bulk. Its panels are populated with individuals who have expertise in small and medium-size tourism communities and operations. Each webinar deals with a thematic subject: by first setting the stage and outlining its parameters; subsequently identifying relevant issues, problems, and prospects; road-mapping operational strategies forward; and closing the session by inviting webinar participants to add their voices to the discussion. Sustainable tourism development, with built-in resiliency, is among the principles feeding the webinar series, advocating strategies which benefit all: the host, the guest, and the stakeholder populations. By bridging tourism theory and practice, the series brings to light the notion and practice of “A Nice Place to Live is a Nice Place to Visit“.

The SCoT Webinar series aims to democratize the creation, access, and use of tourism knowledge among industry, government, academia and small host communities. Our growing community of contributors and participants envision ourselves as globally interconnected networks of scholars conducting engaged research with industry and host communities informing the strategic evolution of tourism as a global force for peace, equitable prosperity, and sustainability.

Based on SCoT’s goals, several webinars have been successfully held so far, available on the past webinars’ searchable page.
