Quality-of-life research in tourism and hospitality has gained much momentum in the past two decades. This line of research covers three main areas of focus: (i) the impacts of specific tourism and hospitality programmes on the overall quality of life of tourists/guests; (ii) the providers of goods and services; (iii) tourist communities, including the impact of different programmes and events on the quality of life of residents in these communities. Focusing on these key subjects, Managing Quality of Life in Tourism and Hospitality provides a portfolio of selected cases showing best practice and delivering them to the forefront of knowledge application, with examples in tourism and hospitality settings. Best practice case studies are included throughout, providing practical implications and lessons learned. These lessons can be applied by tourism and hospitality practitioners and community leaders, and be used to further research by academics working within tourism and hospitality. The book offers an exciting and refreshing approach to quality-of-life research in tourism and hospitality. Key features include: - Best practice and evidence-based case studies. - Broad coverage that includes tourists, industry and local communities. - International application, with material from various countries across the world.
