We would like to thank all who prepared the papers, which are now part of this volume. We believe that it represents a valuable contribution to the field of tourism and heritage, especially during these difficult times, when tourism is being deeply affected by the pandemic-related crisis. On our side, even if the conference couldn’t take place, organising it and preparing the Preceedings were great opportunities. We kindly ask your help to promote our common effort and share the volume with scholars and stakeholders in the field. 

We wish you and your loved ones all the best,
Thank you again, and kind regards,

Lorenzo Cantoni, Silvia De Ascaniis & Karin Elgin-Nijhuis | Chairs
