Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage Management: an International Perspective

Describing practical applications, models and case studies, this book provides an insight into the management of religious tourism, covering both ancient sacred sites and emerging destinations.

Religion and spirituality are common motivations for travel, with many major tourist destinations having developed largely as a result of their connections to sacred people, places and events. Describing practical applications, models and case studies, this book provides an insight into the management of religious tourism, covering both ancient sacred sites and emerging destinations. It fully explored the pressures on sacred spaces to become commercialized and festivalized areas, while still maintaining their religious and spiritual integrity.

The principle behind this new edition is to demonstrate to the reader the intrinsic details that have a crucial role to play within the religious tourism and pilgrimage management process. The connection with other generic disciplines will become evident within the text, leading the reader to a more complete understanding of the key management concepts. The new 2nd edition provides an updated and valuable resource for scholars of religious tourism management from other disciplines, who may not have considered how intricately management is contextualized within and intertwined with the marketing, finance and operation of religious and pilgrimage sites. The 2nd edition lays a foundation for scholars, practitioners and students who do not study management, but who are concerned with the appearance and development of religious tourism and pilgrimage.
