TOURISM GASTRONOMY DESTINATION INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
About The Conference
The tourism sector has a big impact on economic and social development. The Minister of Tourism at the commemoration of the World Tourism Day and the National Tourism Day 2015 suggests that “in recent years, tourism industry has been in the 4th or 5th rank of those who contribute to the GDP of the country.” The growth of tourism sector then creates different types of jobs which provide welfare for society.
Tourism as a field of study is a new addition to academia. Tourism has been referred to in literature as an academic community, a study, or a discipline. Tourism is referred to in multiple fashions by those who study tourism as an academic field, practice tourism as a professional management economic tool, or study tourism as a component of their academic discipline. This includes gastronomic tourism and tourism destination.
Gastronomic tourism is an emerging phenomenon that is developing due to the fact that one third of the trip budget is spent on food consumption. One of the most used definitions of Gastronomic tourism is one proposed by Lee et al., 2015): gastronomic tourism “is a journey, in regions rich in gastronomic resources, to generate recreational experiences or have entertainment purposes”. Gastronomy is not just a process of preparing, producing and consuming food and beverages, but placing it in the structure of the ideological, cultural, economic, social and political (Yurtseven, Kaya: 2010). Therefore, the identity of gastronomy illustrate the cultural influence (the influence of local ethnic including religion), history (origin), the level of diversity of local tribal and ethnic immigrants, ability to innovate, traditional customs, beliefs and values of local wisdom, landscape environment (geographical and climate). Given its association with aspects of the culture, history, beliefs, and geography of the Content gastronomic nations of the world are different from each other.
Meanwhile, tourism destinations is an entity that covers a specific geographic area in which there are components of tourism products (attraction, amenities, accessibilities) and services, as well as other supporting elements (community, tourism industry players, and institutional developers). These elements form a system that is synergistic in creating motivation to visit and experience for tourists to visit.
In line with the explanation above, Trisakti School of Tourism is committed to facilitate a mean of collaboration among the academicians, practitioners, government and related tourism agencies by organizing the international conference with the theme “Tourism, Gastronomy and Destination International Conference”.
In order to publication with Atlantis Press this conference now named as “International Conference on Tourism, Gastronomy, and Tourist Destination (ICTGTD 2016).”
