`The world of meetings is as besot by fresh social media implications as it is by sustainability issues, and a clear, respected guide is necessary. That guide is Tony Rogers - and he brings his integrity to every page. In all, this work is meaningful, timely and welcomed - and, "revised and expanded" in the truest sense of those words.'
Rick Antonson, President and CEO of Tourism Vancouver, Canada
In this new and updated edition Tony Rogers provides a wealth of insight into the workings of a truly global Conference and Conventions Industry. In particular the expansion of material on business tourism is a welcome addition and the chapter on `impacts' brings to the fore, the need to evaluate and address how events of this kind contribute to social knowledge and to an area or region's economy. Overall this is a user-friendly and educational read; it gives anyone accessing it not only the perfect background into the industry, but also some thought-provoking ideas on how to function within it and how to develop business in the future.'
Graham Berridge, University of West London, UK'
