Abstract

In 1994, The Scottish Hotel School, University of Strathclyde, celebrated its 50th anniversary by hosting a Conference, Tourism The State of the Art. The publication arising from this conference was published by Wiley & Sons and consisted of 89 papers amounting to a massive volume of 867 pages. Unsurprisingly the content was variable in quality. Nevertheless the coverage was very comprehensive and with the benefit of hindsight it is clear that the content is a fair representation of the "state of the art" in the mid 1990s. In 2004, the University celebrated its 60th anniversary by hosting Tourism The State of the Art II. On this occasion the publication had less visual impact being confined to a CD version. However the content was expanded to include 200 double-blind refereed papers, reflective of the rapid expansion of research output in the field as well as the strong interest generated by the staging of the conference.
