Abstract: The purpose of this article is to theoretically address the theme of conference tourism, to identify the main challenges that this sector faces. It is part of a more comprehensive work that includes studying the impact of COVID-19 on academic conferences and scientific events and the future of face-to-face events. Therefore, in this paper, we present a literature review to support the theoretical basis of the ongoing research work. In the current context, remote communication technologies have replaced physical participation in events. However, it is expected that in the future, as mobility restrictions end and the pandemic is controlled, physical presence at events will also increase. Not only for the character of socialization and personal interaction that is irreplaceable, but also for the opportunities to discover new tourist destinations and to develop leisure activities that physical participation allows.
