This issue consists mainly in a selection of papers presented to the TMS Algarve 2018 – Tourism & Management Studies International Conference, held in November 2018 in the Algarve. This set of papers reflect the spirit of the event, aiming at encouraging inter-disciplinary and comparative approaches in the fields of Tourism and Management. Tourism is the main focus with topics such as tourism competitiveness, stakeholders’ risk perceptions of a vulnerable destination environment, and tourism trends towards a destination. Consumer psychology and spectator’s involvement triggered by television series is another topic, while the remaining papers deal with public transportation management and knowledge transfer in an international joint venture environment.
