The sharing economy is at the centre of number of current debates involving new technologies and innovative services, sustainability, big data and stakeholder engagement. These trends have serious implications for hoteliers, restaurant owners, airlines and car rental companies and service industries as they change the rules of the game across the services industries.

This is one of the first academic volumes on this topic to focus on marketing and managerial implications specifically in tourism, services marketing and urban studies. Written by an international team of contributors and using real life case studies, it looks at issues such as:

  • Big data and digital marketing in the sharing economy;

  • Rethinking tourism models in the era of the sharing economy;
