Dear Colleagues,

A key paradigm that is changing the travel and hospitality industries in the digital age is the idea of "smart tourism destinations". The purpose of our section, "Navigating the Future: Smart Tourism Destinations", is to examine the various facets of this revolutionary phenomenon. The increasing integration of technology and tourism necessitates the provision of intelligent, sustainable, and seamless destination experiences.


We are looking for thoughtful submissions that explore how data analytics, cutting-edge technologies, and creative thinking are integrated in the field of smart tourism. The focus should be on case studies, theoretical frameworks, and real-world applications that tackle the potential and difficulties that smart destinations bring. We want to conduct a thorough investigation of the smart tourism ecosystem, encompassing everything from data-driven destination management to augmented reality-enhanced tourist experiences.


The impact of developing technologies on the preservation of cultural heritage is one area of interest, among others, as are smart infrastructure, digital tourism marketing, IoT applications in tourism, data privacy concerns, and community engagement in smart destination planning.


Researchers can use this part as a forum to discuss their research, ideas, and discoveries that further the current conversation about how tourism is changing in the digital era. Original research articles, case studies, and reviews that deepen our knowledge of smart tourism destinations are welcome submissions.


We look forward to your insightful contributions to this exciting, fast-paced field.
