In 2014 TEFI moved from an annual to a two-year conference cycle with the option of smaller regional conferences every other year so that we can continue to engage in meaningful change-making activities in tourism. This means that our next major conference will be in 2018. In the meantime, we invite interested tourism scholars and practitioners to engage in more intimate adventures into the TEFI’s mission, values and activities by participating in the regional conference series and the Nepal walking workshop.

Our 2017 Euro-TEFI conference will take an engaged participatory format offering opportunities for those who we haven't seen since Oxford (2013).

The 2017 Nepal Walking Walkshop is an exciting new tourism social entrepreneurship initiative for students and educators.

We invite anyone interested in organizing a regional workshop or major international conference event to contact us at
