Santos Tour Down Under

Emerging research. Informing industry. Interdisciplinary appeal.

What technologies and social changes will disrupt our traditional experience-based industries? From touring to cheering on our favourite team, to attending a festival or playing tennis.

The Centre for Tourism and Leisure Management’s mission is to conduct quality research to facilitate and inform management practices in the tourism and experience industries.

Our areas of expertise allow us to conduct specialist innovative research in tourism, hospitality and events, including:

  • Internationalisation of hospitality, and destination image and marketing.
  • Service quality and operational management in the events, sports, and leisure industries.
  • Tourism behaviour and the changing ways that consumers are engaging with leisure experiences.
