Abstract

The aim of this ATLAS Special Interest Group (SIG) is to contribute to the development of a more consolidated body of knowledge as regards small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in tourism and to provide a strong foundation on which to build future research.

In the interests of providing a foundation for future collaboration, SIG members were invited to provide a brief introductory profile of tourism SMEs in various national contexts.
