Along with members of The Tourism & Leisure Studies Research Network and all in-person and virtual conference participants, you can use your Scholar account and Community profile to meet peers, share your presentation, share published work, and initiate knowledge and learning conversations, with optional feeds to Facebook and Twitter.
Get started and set-up your Community profile through the Scholar platform here.
