Ulster University Festival of PhD research

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


A presentation of my research at the 2023 version of Ulster University festival of PhD research on the Belfast campus. It was a privilege to discuss about my research preliminary findings on the role of entrepreneurial networks in rural tourism development in the context of Northern Ireland.
My research captures relevant insights in respect of the motivation and challenges faced by rural tourism entrepreneurs in joining various entrepreneurial networks across the six counties of Northern Ireland.
This empirical research provides a great opportunity to explore the 'power of
rural tourism entrepreneurs' networks in the development of rural tourism in the region.
