the area of travel, tourism, mobility and consumption.

With this e-mail, we would like to invite you to send us your exciting ideas, 
thoughts and interpretations of touring consumption and present at our 
conference, share your opinions and establish ties with international experts.

Please find below an overview of our conference framework and contact details.

We have recently extended the deadline for our Call for Papers due to popular 
demand until Sunday 31st March, 2013!

Therefore, we are looking forward to your participation in our Call for Papers 
and wish you all the best in the meantime.

Many thanks and kind regards,
