This conference communication illustrates the major outcomes emerging from the EIASM Conference on Tourism Management and Tourism Related Issues held in Nice (France), September 20-21, 2012. While a number of managerial issues pertaining to the tourism field were dealt with, this communication covers three specific areas of interest for destination management and marketing: ( 1 ) the increasing competition among tourism destinations and the rise and consolidation of BRIC countries as outbound travel markets; (2 ) the modification of the target markets for established tourism destinations; and (3) the increasing importance of collaboration and especially coopetition not only with in a tourism destination but also among destinations.
