Reliable statistical data is worth its weight in gold for researchers, academics and business practitioners.
If you’re undertaking research, the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) creates quality reports using data gathered from countries around the globe and makes these reports available in the UNWTO’s Elibrary. The eLibrary’s subject areas reflect important themes in the tourism sector, e.g. ecotourism, sustainable development, finance and investment, risk and crisis management, market research, tourism statistics and poverty alleviation. The format of the UNWTO Elibrary materials range from books and journals to statistical reports by country.
The UNWTO’s materials have a broad coverage of tourism and related subject areas. Although much of the UNWTO’s information is available to “Member States, Affiliate Members and Subscribers” there are some items available free to the public. Tourism Highlights 2015 is one such report.
For even broader coverage of hospitality, tourism and business management topics, the Institute of Hospitality offers its members FREE access to an online library containing publications from the best hospitality and business publishers. The eResources Collection contains hospitality and business-focused titles including over 500 ebooks and approximately 2000 ejournals. Members can also “borrow” from a selection of digital audiobooks and listen to some of the greatest management thinkers discussing leadership, business management and personal development.
The Institute’s resources are a round-the-clock collection of online resources that help hospitality managers hone their skills, find answers to sticky questions and learn how to be the best hospitality manager they can be.
