As usual our presentations are designed to be an experience for those that attend and do not contain lots of detail (we hate bullet points on PowerPoint with a passion). If you are interested in more detail we will be posting an insight article in our environmental scanning database by the 21st July that looks at the issues in the presentation and responds to some of the questions and interactions that occurred at the conference. You can access a free one month  trial of the scanning database by signing up at http://www.emergentfutures.com/page.php?pid=10800  . If you then search for the tag "insight article" or key words like tourism you will be able to see the article that relates to this presentation.


 If you hover your mouse above the bottom section of the presentation on the Right Hand Side after you have clicked on the play arrow it will give you the option for change to a full screen where you can clearly see all the detail.
