I am most pleased to contact you in order to let you know that your article titled Tourism and Economic Growth has been judged to be the recipient of the 2017 Charles R. Goeldner Article of Excellence Award in JTR for 2016. Please accept my most sincere congratulations.

Your article was selected by a panel of 16 members of the JTR Editorial Board who were not, themselves, eligible for the award in 2016.

The Award includes:

  1. A travel grant totalling US$500 to be shared among co-authors, as they wish, if more than one author intends to attend.
  2. A plaque – one for each co-author – to acknowledge the award.
  3. Complimentary conference registration for attending co-authors.

Congratulations once again.

Kind Regards,

Professor of Tourism Policy and Marketing
