E-CONFERENCE REVIEW

SUMMARY -- The 2006 e-conference Role of Communication in Sustainable Tourism opened a global dialogue.

STRENGTHS -- Interesting subject matter and excellent dialogue. A summary will be presented at a meeting in Italy in October 2006.

WEAKNESSES -- Little advance notice or lead time. It's not a good sign when information about a conference about communication is distributed after the event has begun. The e-conference had scant promotion from the organizers -- World Bank, World Tourism Organization and supporting institutions, including the Communications Initiative. Within the forum, the organization of the topics was confusing. Participants could introduce new topics and there was considerable overlap. Posting was offline for at least two days during the second week of the event. Archives are no longer available.
