The Academic Association for Research in Tourism and Services and The Bucharest University of Economic Studies welcomes you to The 8th International Conference on Tourism, CACTUS 2021 – Contemporary Approaches and Challenges of Tourism Sustainability to be held online from Bucharest, Romania on 21st – 22nd of October 2021.

CACTUS 2021 represents a great opportunity for academics, practitioners and consultants from all around the world who are involved in the study, innovation and development of tourism and hospitality related issues to come together and exchange ideas for a brighter and thriving future.
It also provides a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the broad field of tourism and service quality.

Established with the effort of several members of The Bucharest University of Economic Studies, The Faculty of Business and Tourism is engaged in a continuous effort to meet the highest academic requirements and professionalism, offering support for various scientific and business activities such as strengthening the national leadership in business administration, tourism, services, commodity sciences and quality management.

In spite of the current situation and our ambition to organize a meeting in a traditional set-up, the return to a physical event hosted by our university is not likely to be possible. We realize that the past year events have revealed our deepest vulnerabilities and our greatest strengths, but also have had longer lasting impacts on participants’ ability and willing to travel for conferences.
Therefore, we are aiming to deliver a physical conference experience through an online virtual platform and we invite you to participate in the two-day online conference, present and share your research work, get your work published in a journal indexed in international databases, and create new and long-lasting friendships or partnerships.
