Tourism is one of the world's largest and fastest growing industries. The paper discusses how the World Tourism Organization (WTO) views tourism and its defining feature. It also mentions the poverty and tourism. The importance that the role of marketing plays in tourism is also examined; hospitality and marketing depend on one another. The role of transportation is also analyzed. The paper concludes that the tourism environment and hospitality marketing industry will always remain a strong factor in globalization, even in light of disasters that can negatively influence vacation and travel.

From the Paper:

"In recent years, the comprehensive atmosphere of tourism has undergone extensive changes worldwide in comparison to tourism during decades of the past. The traditional face of tourism has been exposed to numerous acts of terrorism, and even more recently, historical natural disasters. Although these recent tragedies have significantly altered tourism, the tourism and hospitality sector nevertheless remain as one of the largest components of the global economy. Even in recent years, the growth rate of tourism supersedes that of most other goods and services. As a result of this rapid growth, the profile of tourists has changed as consumers apparently have become more experienced, more demanding, and more likely to treat tourism purchases in very much the same way as they do any other item of consumption (Baum & Moudambi, 1999). The globalization of communications transport and technology has also created a new environment for tourism's economic and social planning. This has led to new tourism policy formulations and recommendations both by and for tourism professionals. This paper will discuss a comprehensive understanding of such elements of tourism as outlined above."
