"Contemporary Trends in Tourism and Hospitality - CTTH 2013" is an International conference regarding research in tourism, leisure, hotel management, gastronomy and multidisciplinary studies.
The CTTH is traditionally organised since 1997, for the 15th time this year. Until 2009 it was annual, when it was rearranged as biennial event.
The scientific meeting comprised the following topics: contemporary tendencies in tourism, sustainable tourism development, cultural tourism, economical aspects of tourism and leisure, marketing and management, hotel management, specific forms of tourism, animation in tourism, hospitality and gastronomy.

Title of the CTTH 2013 - Peace, Culture and Tourism arose from the fact that this year we are celebrating 1700 years of Christianity and Edict of Milan (Edictum Mediolanense), proposed by two Roman Emperors and one of them – Constantine - was born in Serbia (City of Niš). Geographical setting of Serbia made this land a crossroad for different civilisations, which left rich cultural heritage as memento. This cultural heritage can be linked and revived through cultural routes and stand as peace monument for future generations. This kind of strategy or way of thinking could bring more progressive economic and social development of the whole region and promote more balanced regional development and the quality of life.
Beside this topic, we warmly welcome contributors from diverse fields of tourism, management, hospitality, etc. to present their research in very broad thematic sessions.
