This chapter examines challenges for the future and other emerging ideas in the travel, hospitality and events sectors. The tourism industry is rapidly evolving, and change appears to be the dominant trend. Innovative ideas may serve as a future trend or penetrate an industry to generate a new product or service which becomes the norm and are sought out to maintain a vibrant, growing tourism industry. Fifteen future scenarios are explored with the intent to invoke thought and discussion on how change is embraced. The chapter concludes by suggesting that these are only some of the larger challenges faced by the tourism industry and many more issues need to be considered.
