Abstract

It has become accepted, almost as an article of faith in the tourism industry, that a major option, open to both large cities and traditional resorts which wish to maintain or increase their tourism earnings, is the generation of large scale conference tourism through the construction of large convention or congress centres. Implicit in this assumption is a belief that large scale conventions will continue to occupy an important place in the tourism industry.
