Special Interest Tourism, A Replacement for Modern Tourism
Dr. Malekzadeh, in the framework of his theory (MFT), has challenged and criticized traditional and modern definitions of the tourism and tried to reveal its disadvantages and shortages. In fact, although Malekzadeh has not negated fundamental elements of tourism and multidimensionality of its nature in this theory, but he has added another dimension to the various dimensions of its essence and nature as spiritual nature and admitted that major purpose of tourism knowledge and industry should be attempt for reaching mental peace and promoting spiritual capability of human. Regarding this, MFT considers that current mechanism, models and structures of tourism, with inattention to the spirit and mind of human, has not such capability to meet all needs of all tourists.
Dear Mr. Malekzadeh,
I wish to congratulate you on being awarded the first internationally classified Certificate of Invention in Tourism in Iran, in recognition of your exemplary leadership of a 30-member research group from Ihe University of Edalat on Management Process and Quality Control of Different Special Interests Tours.
