The 6th IPTRN conference - Creative Forces in the Polar Regions: Cultures, Economies, Innovation, and Change in Tourism is now accepting abstract submissions for next year’s conference in Yukon Territory, Canada running from 22nd through 28th June, 2018.

  • Culture and cultural tourism, including policy;
  • Parks, protected areas and cultural tourism;
  • Winter tourism and cold weather cultures: attractions, visitors, opportunities and challenges;
  • Indigenous culture and tourism;
  • Community interactions with polar tourists;
  • An inclusive Arctic – the role of arts, culture and tourism for demographic diversity (e.g., ethnic groups, the LGBTQ community);
  • Economic geographies of and innovation in polar tourism;
