About APF (Asia Pacific Forum for Graduate Students' Research in Tourism)
With a history of 17 years, the Asia Pacific Forum for Graduate Students’ Research in Tourism aims at providing a “research forum” for post-graduate students and faculty members engaged in research and post-graduate education in hospitality and tourism in the Asia Pacific region.
Each year, participants of APF gather to present findings in topics of tourism and hospitality, exchange information through networking and research, and share their in-depth understanding and insights related with innovations, trends, opportunities and challenges of global tourism and hospitality. APF has been recognized as one of the most successful forums in the Asia Pacific region as it has built up an important networking platform for tourism/hospitality graduate students and academics to learn and to share.
In 2019, Woosong University, South Korea, is granted with this great opportunity to host the 18th APF from 21 to 23 June at Woosong University in Daejeon, South Korea with the focus on a variety of contemporary issues in tourism and hospitality education and research. In addition to learning from their colleagues' research, participants of this conference will also have an opportunity to attend a half day tour to experience the beauty of Daejeon city and Korean culture.
