Innovation today stands among the key aspects of tourism research. The pace of innovation experienced by the tourism industry has significantly triggered critical inquiries about the need to incorporate transformations about the effects on the sector or about the problems created by subjectivity and data protection among many others.
Under the swift pace of innovations from nowadays practitioners and scholars cannot entirely manage to grasp the ever-changing environment of tourism. Translating innovation is becoming increasingly difficult, yet it has to be done.
Otherwise, innovative avenues might be missed and limit the frontiers of tourism. On the other hand, important questions like what factors impede the restructuring of tourism despite the adoption of innovative solutions, how can stakeholders be more involved to promote innovation or what innovations tourism brings on, are in need of scrutiny.
Acknowledging tourism special problems that differently arise within the market and the theoretical field, the 7th International Conference on Tourism advances the challenge to explore the complex relations between innovation and tourism development.
Practitioners and business experiences have the chance to support the co-creation of value for all stakeholders and address a range of components of connectivity. Conversely, the scholars’ perspectives bring to the fore current issues as commented within the theoretical realm and how they respond along the geographical scale.

Viscri is about village life, the village with no source of technology, the image that has remained the same, in which the accommodation represents the houses of the countrymen. Even Charles, Prince of Wales chose to buy a house in this area. Every year Viscri gets a higher number of tourists because they have a fully rural experience, for instance enjoying the dishes cooked in the oven and then served in the house yard, parades of 300 cows, and a walk through the village where time seems to be passing slowly.
