De Tourism World Inter-National presents Tourism in Research & Practice from Thursday 28th September to Sunday October 1st, 2017.

Theme: Investment in Infrastructure, Commercial & Agro-Tourism, as a catalyst for sustainable development, wealth and job creation.

Venue:Golden Tulip Hotel & Conference Center, Amuwo Odofin G.R.A, Lagos, Nigeria.

Tourism turns attractive places to destinations, but with the right infrastructural development and exceptional management. It creates jobs through its commercial activities. It changes people and adds value to host communities thereby reducing crisis and rural-urban migration. Agro-tourism as a sub-set is an answer to food security, poverty reduction and unemployment. When the socioeconomic development foundation is laid and the structures positively put in place sustainability becomes the bedrock to keep the system intact. In keeping pace with the TWI previous conference themes that seek to encourage and promote commercial and agro-tourism, activate change, empower people, inspire and create networking opportunities,  De Tourism World International invites the academic community to come and share their findings at the 2017 Tourism World International Commercial / Aggro Tourism Conference.     

Golden Tulip Hotel & Conference Center, Amuwo Odofin, G.R.A , Lagos offers a unique setting for this international Conference. Practitioners can tell the story of tourism exploration and practice, linking and crafting values with experiences, researchers need to instill action by introducing case studies results, presenting new ideas/strategies with fresh models and methods.
