Abstract
This study aims to present an in-depth analysis of the conclusions reached in the “search conference” on postgraduate tourism education, held in Turkey, 22nd–25th April 2010. The conference was designed to develop a roadmap for the future of postgraduate tourism education, not only in Turkey, but also at the international level. Representatives from the industry and from universities participated in the two-day conference. Through the inquiries carried out under the lead of a facilitator and the implementation of a SWOT analysis to find answers to the question of how the system of postgraduate tourism education should be designed, the study highlights various practical implications.
