Technology And Social Transformations In Hospitality, Tourism And Gastronomy
South Asia Perspectives
This book explores the relationship between technology and social transformation in tourism, hospitality and gastronomy. It presents research and case studies, elaborating on benchmark practices adopted by tourism and hospitality professionals.
In recent years, technology has transformed the tourism and hospitality industry; the chapters in this book cover areas such as guest experience and service quality, as well as operational areas such as housekeeping and waste management.
Further social transformation in tourism is a result of drivers such as a growing interest in gastronomy and the use of social media; this is covered in the first part of the book. The second part outlines how communities may learn from these events.
With contributions from academics, entrepreneurs, destination managers, and government officials from the South Asia region, this book offers a real insight into these areas of growing interest and provides a useful resource for those researching and studying within the areas of tourism development and hospitality.
