Nothing moves and happens in an economic system without the initiative and indomitable courage displayed by people endowed with entrepreneurial zeal. This spirit of entrepreneurship, as in other fields, manifests itself in Tourism and Hospitality segments too. Since the basic motives for tourism lay in human curiosity to see the other side of the world, to explore the unknown, to familiarize with the unfamiliar and to acquaint with the strange, the potential for entrepreneurship in tourism is immense. It involves identification and development of new tourism destinations, experiences, events and practices. All this calls for tremendous display of entrepreneurship in tourism sector. In this backdrop, the Department of Tourism Studies, Pondicherry University, organized a National Seminar on the theme of "Creativity and Innovations in Indian Tourism Entrepreneurship: Contemporary Trends" in March, 2010, under the Special Assistance Program (SAP) at DRS Level-I, sponsored by UGC. This edited compilation includes the select papers presented during the technical sessions under the following themes: * Introduction; * Creativity and Innovations in Tourism; * Tourism Entrepreneurship - Sectoral Perspective; * Tourism Destinations and Entrepreneurial Opportunities; * Tourism Product Development; * Institutional Support for Tourism Entrepreneurship; * Women in Tourism; * Tourism Industry ? Business Trends Each part of the book is devoted to a specific issue of tourism entrepreneurship that warrants special focus. It has been hoped that this volume would provoke thinking and sow the seeds for the germination of new ideas, processes, and business models in Tourism. Printed Pages: 442.

Buchbeschreibung Springer-Verlag Gmbh Jan 2017, 2017. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. 242x167x25 mm. Neuware - This volume explores the links between the rapidly growing phenomenon of social entrepreneurship (SE) and the international tourism and hospitality industry. This unique industry is particularly ripe for transformation by SE and the book's authors delve deeply into the reasons for this. The book has three parts. The first creates a conceptual and theoretical framework for understanding the uniqueness of SE in the tourism context. The second examines different communities of practice where SE is being applied in tourism. The third is a rich collection of case studies from eight countries where tourism SE is already having an impact. The book's authors address the topic from many different angles, disciplinary backgrounds and geographic areas. Many case study authors are practicing social entrepreneurs who share their successes, challenges and experience with tourism-related projects. The book also proposes a research agenda and educational programmatic changes needed to support tourism SE. As these are developed, tourism SE will bring innovation to destinations, transformation of their economic and social structures, and contribution to a better world. The book has many insights and resources for scholars and practitioners alike to usher in this transformation. 332 pp. Englisch, Deutsch. Artikel-Nr. 9783319465166
