The first New Zealand Conference on accessible tourism, travel, and hospitality for people with disabilities and seniors will be held on 4 October 2010.

This one day conference is organized by the New Zealand Tourism Research Institute, Auckland University of Technology, Auckland New Zealand. It will examine various aspects of tourism for people, with disabilities and seniors. A neglected sector in New Zealand, tourism for the disabled is predicted to become of major importance worldwide as Baby Boomers age and begin to experience increased disability. Access Tourism is the fastest growing sector overseas as people with disabilities take advantage of increasingly accessible international tourism products. In New Zealand, our most important domestic and international visitor segment already comprises those who are 45 years old or older and it is predicted that the age of tourists will increase worldwide over the next several decades. New Zealand must prepare for the needs of this market if it is to benefit from it. The conference will be opened by the Honourable Tariana Turia, Minister for Disabilities Issues.

22-24 September, Fremantle, Perth Themes:
-Developing approaches to support international research opportunities
