Combining the knowledge and expertise of over a hundred scholars from thirty-one countries around the world, the book aims to foster synergetic interaction between academia and industry. Its wealth of case studies and examples make it an essential resource for students, researchers and industry practitioners of hospitality, tourism, gastronomy, management, marketing, consumer behavior, business and cultural studies.
