About the Conference

The 8th International Scientific Conference in the field of Tourism and Hospitality SITCON 2023 (Singidunum International Tourism Conference) will be held at Singidunum University in Belgrade on October 19, 2023.

The main topic of this year’s conference is:

Managing the Future by Learning from the Past – Contemporary Trends in Tourism & Hospitality

SITCON 2023 conference will be held for the eighth time with the aim of providing a continuous contribution to the development of scientific aspirations in tourism, especially in Serbia, relying on the experience and scientific contribution to the realization of the previous seven conferences (SITCON 2015, SITCON 2016, SITCON 2017, SITCON 2018, SITCON 2020, SITCON 2021 and SITCON 2022).

The SITCON 2023 conference’s aim is to contribute substantially to the field of tourism and hospitality management worldwide. The global approach to tourism and hospitality industries has changed significantly over the past decades – especially as a result of rapid globalization, owing to the emergence of new technologies, as well as due to the pandemic period which caused many changes in everyday operations. Singidunum University is completely prepared to contribute significantly to the distribution of the foundation for greater awareness about present and future tourism trends. In this context, it is critical to explore and expose the most current developments in many domains that contribute to modern hospitality and tourism management and have a direct influence on the future performance of these industries. Even though certain breakthroughs in the field have been made, tourism and hospitality research trends remain relevant and are gaining attention in a changing world. As a result, it is critical to carry on doing research on specific tourism topics in order to gain a greater understanding and vital perspectives.

With regard to the SITCON 2023 topics, the conference offers a great opportunity for the exchange of ideas and the dissemination of best practices among scientists and experts from various fields (travel agencies, tour operators, hotel enterprises, and other segments of the accommodation offer, transportation companies, and companies related to other complementary activities).

The SITCON 2023 will take place at Singidunum University in Belgrade. All details be announced accordingly.
