About the 5th IHTC2020

The Faculty of Hotel and Tourism Management, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Malaysia is proud to announce the International Hospitality and Tourism ONLINE Conference (HTC) 2020 with the theme “Beyond 2020 and COVID-19: New Perspective in the Hospitality & Tourism Industry”. IHTC2020 offers a unique forum for attendees from industry, academia, government, and other organisations to actively exchange, share, and challenge state-of-the-art research and industrial case studies on the application of the area of hospitality, tourism, foodservice and gastronomy.

The worldwide spread of COVID-19 is not only resulting in global crises for the tourism and hospitality sector but also substantially changing travellers wants and market demands. Moreover, due to this pandemic, the higher education system particularly hospitality and tourism education, has modified their method of teaching from the traditional classroom to online mechanism. Thus, this conference aims to disseminate fresh insights with timely and informative studies on impacts and challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic for tourism and hospitality, with long-term managerial and research implications Through this conference, the stage is set for academicians, industry practitioners and the government to share and discuss ideas, to reflect on experiences and new, improved strategies in response to the challenging time ahead. We welcome submissions that are empirical in nature. Sociopsychological studies and in-depth qualitative research studies are also encouraged.
