Abstract [en]

Augmented reality (AR) is gaining attention as one of the methods for realizing metaverse experiences. Although previous studies identified authenticity and narrative transportation as positive predictors of tourist behaviors in AR tourism, few studies have explained why authenticity and narrative transportation can affect tourist behaviors in AR tourism. To fill the research gap, drawing upon attachment theory, this study aims to examine the mediating role of AR attachment between authenticity, narrative transportation, and word of mouth. Through structural equation modeling analysis, the findings indicated AR attachment mediated authenticity, narrative transportation, and word of mouth. This study advanced attachment theory by proposing a new concept, AR attachment, and tested its mediation effect. Furthermore, the findings are beneficial for heritage tourism managers to understand AR heritage tourism marketing.

Abstract [en]

PurposeThere is limited research on the behavior of different categories of space tourists as identified by different types of space tourism. To address this deficiency, the purpose of this study is to examine what factors make consumers participate in orbital and/or suborbital space tourism, along with three dimensions of motivation, constraint and artificial intelligence. To achieve this study's goals, a comprehensive research model was developed that included three dimensions of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, intrapersonal and interpersonal constraint and awareness of and trust in artificial intelligence, in comparing orbital and suborbital space tourism groups. Design/methodology/approachA questionnaire was carried out with respondents who wanted to participate in orbital (n = 332) and suborbital (n = 332) space tourism in the future. Partial least squares-structural equation modeling, fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis, multi-group analysis and deep learning were used to understand potential space tourist behavior. FindingsExtrinsic motivation has the greatest positive impact on behavioral intention, followed by awareness of and trust in artificial intelligence, while intrapersonal constraint strongly negatively affects behavioral intention. Surprisingly, interpersonal constraint is insignificant by partial least squares-structural equation modeling but is still one of sufficient causal configurations by fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis. Interestingly, the two types of space tourism have very distinct characteristics. Originality/valueThis study created a comprehensive integrated research model with three dimensions of motivation, constraint and artificial intelligence, along with potential orbital and suborbital space tourist groups, to identify future consumer behavior. Importantly, this study used multi-analysis methods using four different approaches to better shed light on potential orbital and suborbital space tourists.

Abstract [en]

The tourism industry, destinations, and the wider tourism community and stakeholders face several significant short and long-term challenges that will substantially affect the future direction of tourism. Issues of social, economic, and environmental change are further complicated by current geopolitical conflicts and competition. These issues raise important questions with respect to the role of academic journals in capacity building as well as creating a framework within which different geopolitical perspectives can be accommodated and productive debate encouraged. Implications are noted.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this research is to examine the roles of benefits and awareness of AI, as well as the usefulness and knowledge of smart apps in shaping tourist public transport use in South Korea, considering senior and younger population segments and gender. This research utilizes a mixed-methods approach (partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM), multigroup analysis (MGA), fuzzy-set Qualitative Comparative Analysis (fsQCA)), combining symmetric and asymmetric methods to explore the roles of AI and smart apps in influencing public transport usage among different age and gender groups for domestic tourism. The findings of this research provide key insights into the roles of AI and smart apps on tourist public transport usage, considering age and gender. Based on PLS-SEM, smart app usefulness was the most important for participating in public transport, followed by AI benefits and smart app knowledge. While the benefits of AI are necessary for seniors and males, the usefulness of smart apps is recognized by all ages and genders. The benefits of AI and usefulness of smart apps are sufficient for all ages and genders, but other input variables differ. The use of PLS-SEM, MGA, and fsQCA allow for the identification of complex causal relationships and configurations among the variables of interest, revealing the specific AI and smart app features that cater to the unique needs and preferences of different demographic groups.

Abstract [en]

This study regards a Child Play-and-Learn Area (CPLA) in a library as a third place and investigates its relationships with visitors through the concept of place attachment. To understand the influence of the CPLA, the study examined the relationships among visitors' place attachment, servicescape and behavioural intentions involving place scales. A survey was conducted in a CPLA in Christchurch, New Zealand (The Imagination Station in the central library) and collected 406 questionnaires. The results indicate that the physical and social servicescape of the CPLA can enhance visitors' place attachment and influence their behavioural intentions in the library and the city. The findings suggest that community-oriented places like CPLAs and libraries should be used as social infrastructure in urban regeneration strategies.

Abstract [en]

The Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change represents the state of knowledge of anthropogenic disruption to the climate system, its diverse ecosystem and societal impacts, and the imperative for and challenges of mitigation and adaptation responses. It is foundational for global climate policymaking. This paper examines the place of tourism in AR6 and reviews its key findings for tourism's future. Overall, tourism related content declined relative to previous assessments. While notable improvements in content occurred for Africa, visible knowledge gaps remain in the tourism growth regions of South America, Middle East, and South Asia. There remains limited discussion of many impacts, and very limited understanding of integrated impacts and the effectiveness of adaptation strategies at the destination scale. The contribution of tourism to global emissions was omitted, however tourism was discussed in the context of luxury emissions and just transitions. Tourism is repeatedly identified in solution space discussions, particularly for ecosystem protection, but without consideration of the future of tourism in a rapidly decarbonizing and climate disrupted economy. With only 21% of published climate change and tourism literature in the AR6 review period cited, tourism academics should elevate tourism content and engagement in future assessments.

Abstract [en]

Employer branding in organizational human resources management is essential. Nevertheless, certain gaps persist within the realm of scientific research in this field, particularly in the exploration of novel concepts like employer brand personality appeal and its potential impact within the hospitality industry, which grapples with numerous human resources challenges. To fill this gap in knowledge, this paper introduces employer brand personality appeal as a concept within the hospitality employer brand context and measures its impact alongside corporate social responsibility on employee turnover intention and satisfaction in Iran's hospitality industry. Using a quantitative approach, a survey questionnaire was applied to investigate employees' perceptions. Respondents were 225 employees of four-and five-star hotels in Tehran. Results signify the impact of both corporate social responsibility and employer brand personality appeal on employees' behavioral consequences. Furthermore, findings support the influence of corporate social responsibility in promoting employer brand personality appeal. Therefore, this study expands hospitality employer brand literature by proposing a novel concept and exploring its potential for hospitality human resources deficiencies.

Abstract [en]

In an effort to contain the advancement of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, many states have introduced unprecedented peacetime measures ranging from border closures and travel bans to the suspension of visa exemptions, as well as internal mobility restrictions, including full lockdowns and quarantine for incoming passengers. Nevertheless, coercive measures such as sanctions continue to be applied during the COVID-19 outbreak and have largely undermined sanctioned countries' capacity to respond to the pandemic. The latter has prompted renewed discussion of the humanitarian costs of this frequently deployed foreign policy tool against the civilian populations in the target countries. The inconsistent application of border controls and travel restrictions by states also raise questions as to the politics of pandemics and how they fulfill the International Health Regulations. Framed from a geopolitical perspective, this study aims to discuss the power of sanctions regime in relation to state responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. This paper also discusses the degree of selectivity of border restrictions by major global tourism destinations. While the COVID-19 pandemic is first and foremost a health crisis, its implications are economically and geo-politically far-reaching with corresponding implications for the framing of travel and tourism within humanitarian and political contexts.

Abstract [en]

The COVID-19 pandemic led to a dramatic loss of human lives worldwide and presented an unprecedented challenge to public health, tourism and community relations. Previous research on the relationship between xenophobia and travel behavior is limited, especially in the context of concerns over potential contagion. Therefore, this study examined the relationship between xenophobia and travel behavior during the COVID-19 pandemic in a sample of 489 Iranian travelers participated in survey conducted online. The results demonstrated that xenophobia positively correlates with the fear of COVID-19, travel risk perception, untact tourism, and travel precautions, although it is negatively correlated with the intention to undertake outbound and domestic travel. The relationships between push and pull factors to xenophobia were found insignificant. Interestingly, a significant difference between genders in the relationship between travel risk perception and xenophobia was identified. The study presents significant theoretical and practical implications and offers new avenues for future research.
