The objectives of the International scientific conference "TOURISM IN FUNCTION OF DEVELOPMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF SERBIA – Tourism and Rural Development", which will be held from the 04-06th June 2020 in Vrnjačka Banja, organized by the Faculty of Hotel Management and Tourism in Vrnjačka Banja, University of Kragujevac, refer to the consideration of various tourism-related aspects and impact of tourism, as one of the world-leading industries, to the development of the countries. The basic idea is to systematize the effects of tourism on the economic, political, demographic, social development by one multidisciplinary approach.

Having in mind that the World Tourism Day 2020 will be marked under the title Tourism and Rural Development, the specific objective of the 5th International Scientific Conference will be to consider the role and importance of tourism in developing the rural areas of Republic of Serbia and other countries. Tourism have a high potential to stimulate rural economic growth and social change because of its complementarity with other economic activities, its contribution to GDP and job creation, and its capacity to promote the dispersal of demand in time and along a wider territory (UNWTO, 2019). World Tourism Organization claims in its publication “Tourism 2020 Vision” that rural tourism is expected to increase significantly in the next five or ten years. There is ongoing debate within the academic community in the global scale how to bridge the rural-urban divide and achieve sustainability in rural areas. Thus, this event is seen as an excellent opportunity to gather academic and practitioners around the role of the tourism in the context of rural development with aim to share experiences and advance knowledge related to tourism contribution to the rural development.

In achieving aforementioned Conference objectives, we highly encourage contributions of tourismologists, economists, managers, lawyers, urban planners, sociologists, demographers, geographers, other eminent scientists from universities, institutes, colleges, including representatives of tourism organizations and local self-governments from Serbia and other countries. Organizer’s intention is to open debate on the role tourism plays in the economy of different countries, factors which influence tourism development, measures that need to be taken to adapt to those developments, challenges tourism industry is facing in the digital era, balance that needs to be made between the rights and obligations of the users and providers of tourism services in order to ensure competitiveness of business, etc. It is expected that discussion not only gives answer to many current questions, but also to encourage new ones, in order to improve the tourism-related theory and practice.
