Dr. Jerry Agrusa, professor of travel industry management at Hawai‘i Pacific University, has been chosen as the keynote speaker for the 2009 15th annual Asia Pacific Tourism Association Conference. The conference will focus on a broad range of topics related to research in tourism and hospitality.
Agrusa was selected as the keynote speaker of the event because of his well-known extensive research in tourism. He will travel to Incheon, Korea July 9-12 to deliver his speech, “What Does Paradise Do When Recession Hits? A View From Hawai‘i.”
“ I am very excited about this opportunity,” Agrusa said. “Since coming back to HPU in 2001, I have really emphasized that we at HPU do excellent research, and I have worked very hard at putting the TIM program and the College of Business on the map when it comes to research.”
Tourism researchers, industry experts, academic administrators,
postgraduate students, and publishers in the Asia Pacific region will gather at the conference for the opportunity to present and discuss research outcomes, and to exchange research ideas and network for future collaboration.
