Welcome to THI2022! 26th Biennial International Congress Tourism & Hospitality Industry hosted by The Faculty of Tourism and Hospitality Management in Opatija, University of Rijeka is going to be held in the city of Opatija on 21 October 2022.

THI2022 is a multidisciplinary congress with a long tradition bringing together policymakers, industry and academics to lay the groundwork and identify innovative solutions for the development of tourism.  The aim is to promote a collaborative environment between the academic and tourism community in search of improvement and attractiveness of tourism business.

Tourism and the hotel industry are simultaneously very delicate and flexible parts of national and worldwide economic systems. Plurality of social, economic, technological, natural, political and other changes have huge effect on their adaptation and development. Consequently, the working title of our congress includes variety of aspects to be discussed: TRENDS AND CHALLENGES.

This year, THI2022 will be held together with the 1st scientific-professional conference Hotelska kuća 2022. A significant part of the event is dedicated to direct dialogue with Croatian hoteliers and will present a symbiosis of science and profession through examples of good practise.
