We are pleased to invite you to contribute to the 9th Annual Conference of EATSA (Euro-Asia Tourism Studies Association) organized with the Department of Tourism Administration, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University and  Institute of Hotel Management, Aurangabad (IHM-A) Aurangabad, India. The conference is taking place in the city of Aurangabad (Chattrapati Sambhaji Nagar) the tourism Capital of the state of Maharashtra, India between 14-16 September 2023. The central theme of the conference is Tourism & Sustainable Development Goals: Introspection & Prognosis. The EATSA 2023 Conference offers a worldwide forum for attendees from academia and industry to actively exchange, share, and challenge ideas and research on travel, tourism, hospitality, and recreation.


Sustainable tourism development guidelines and management practices are applicable to all forms of tourism in all types of destinations, including mass tourism and the various niche tourism segments. Sustainability principles refer to the environmental, economic, and socio-cultural aspects of tourism development, and a suitable balance must be established. To maintain this balance, a historic agreement was signed among world leaders at the United Nations in 2015 on a universal 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development committed all countries to pursue a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that would lead to a better future for all. The bold agenda sets out a global framework to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and fix climate change until 2030.

As the 17 SDGs and the corresponding 169 SDG targets offer the world a new direction, tourism can and must play a significant role in delivering sustainable solutions for people, the planet, prosperity, and peace.


The conference aims to assess the work done by various stakeholders on 17 SDGs and the corresponding 169 SDG targets to offer the world a new direction in tourism. As per the 2030 agenda, this is the right time to introspect about the change brought in to improve the environmental, economic, and socio-cultural aspects of tourism development and also to plan ahead for this mid-juncture.

Only the accepted and peer-reviewed full papers presented at the conference will be published in a regular/special issue of the Euro-Asia Tourism Studies Journal. There is also a possibility for publication in a special issue of the Tourism Review, a Q1 SCOPUS-listed journal, to help promote researchers to publish their work.
