Transcript of The 5 Industries of Tourism

Introduction To... The 5 Industries of Tourism The 5 industries of the tourism sector are accommodations, food and beverages, transportation, recreation and entertainment, and travel services.
The 8 sectors of tourism were accommodations, food and beverages, transportation/travel, attractions, meeting/events/conferences, adventure/ecotourism/recreation, travel trade and tourism services.
