Abstract

Other title: "Best Education Network Think Tank IV". Achieving sustainability is a challenge for all of society, but one that may prove especially problematic for the business events sector. Tourism in general and the business events industry in particular may be even more susceptible than other sectors to changing public opinion regarding travel, particularly air travel and long haul flights. Long haul destinations, because of their physical location, are likely to be more susceptible than other destinations.
