The 2013 National Extension Tourism (NET) Conference Program Committee invites proposals for the 2013 NET Conference, the theme of which is “Building Lasting Relationships.” Based on this theme, the Conference Program Committee is seeking proposals for oral presentations, poster presentations, and panel presentations/workshops in the following nine broad topical areas:

  1. Rural Tourism Development/Tourism in Resilient Communities
  2. Community and Regional Planning and Development
  3. Economic, Environmental, and Social Impacts of Tourism and Recreation
  4. Agritourism—Local Foods, Farmers Markets, Culinary Tourism
  5. Heritage and Cultural Tourism
  6. Nature-Based Tourism: Ecotourism, Wildlife Enterprises, Adventure Tourism, Coastal Tourism
  7. Marketing and Promotion
  8. Tourism Research and Evaluation
  9. Tourism Education, Training, and Certification Programs

The Program Committee encourages all proposal submitters to “connect” their work in tourism and recreation development to the conference’s “Building Lasting Relationships” theme, and is calling for new presentations (previously unpublished) and/or projects in progress. Please note: If a proposal is accepted for presentation at the conference, presenters must register for the conference.

The deadline for proposal submission is March 1, 2013, with notification of submission status by March 22, 2013.
