The tourism sector has a big impact on economic and social development. The Minister of Tourism at the commemoration of the World Tourism Day and the National Tourism Day 2015 suggested that “in recent years, tourism industry has been in the 4th or 5th rank of those who contribute to the GDP of the country.” The growth of tourism sector then creates different types of jobs which provide welfare for society.
Tourism as a field of study is a new addition to academia. Tourism has been referred to in literature as an academic community, a study, or a discipline. Tourism is referred to in multiple fashions by those who study tourism as an academic field, practice tourism as a professional management economic tool, or study tourism as a component of their academic discipline. This includes gastronomic tourism and tourism destination.
The Trisakti School of Tourism is committed to facilitate a means of collaboration among the academicians, practitioners, government and related tourism agencies by organizing the international conference with the theme “Tourism, Gastronomy and Destination International Conference (ICTGTD 2016)”, on 14-15 November 2016, in Djakarta, Indonesia.
