Nous voici à Montréal, mais il est alors très Français que nous pourrions être en effet en France déjà. French is their first language but everyone speaks English, in varying degrees of competence. Their menus, television, street signage are all in French. In 1969 then PM Pierre Trudeau officially made Quebec a bilingual province, and so everyone speaks French first and foremost. What an embarrassment that we speak only English. It’s sort of weird that we are in such a French environment with such an American ‘culture’. We arrived in Montreal to everything snow and ice covered, much as it was in Toronto when we arrived, but thicker. Montreal is on an island on the St Lawrence River, and the river was largely frozen when we arrived. However, we have seen a dramatic decrease in the ice between arrival on Tuesday and departure on Friday. It is astonishing how quickly everything defrosts, making the streets wet and slippery. Mind you, some things don’t defrost quickly enough, and have to be helped along. We are staying in an Auberge in the old port and it is absolutely lovely with really friendly and efficient staff. There is such a difference between Old and New Montreal. Nothing really to recommend the new part…just another high rise city but old Montreal has been protected from all development and is charming, accessible and an area we love to just wander around, with its narrow streets and laneways. We decide it’s time for some culture, so on Wednesday night we go to a concert at the glorious Maison Symphonique de Montreal, opened in 2010. It is a 2100 seat concert hall with magnificent acoustics and comfortable seats. We are at the Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal, conducted by their resident musical director Kent Nagano. The program comprises Debussy’s Jeux, Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No 3 in C Major Opus 26, with an astonishing 25 year old Russian Daniil Trifonov on piano (keep your eyes, or should that be ears, out for him – this boy is amazing) and the second... The printed (and complimentary) program acknowledges financial assistance, public, corporate and private, in excess of $85m. And, the bespoke organ paid for by a private donor. Oh, the difference in cultural enlightenment between Australia and the rest of the world. Michael Lynch’s speech is well timed, although I don’t expect Malcolm. Source: 2csovercs

Tourism is often described as an industry with high growth rates, and it is subject to radical change in how it is produced and consumed. However, there is still a relatively poor understanding of how such changes are brought about – that is, through innovation. This book is the first to provide a comprehensive review of innovation in tourism, while also considering how tourism itself contributes to innovative local, regional and national development strategies. This timely book places tourism innovation in the context of current academic and policy concerns relating to knowledge, competition, and the management of change. A substantial introductory chapter provides an overview of what makes innovation in tourism both distinctive from, and similar to innovation in other economic sectors. This is followed by three general scene setting chapters which explore how competition and the search for competitiveness drive tourism innovation, how knowledge transfers and knowledge creation lead the process, and how institutions shape innovation. These provide a coherent theoretical framework for understanding the roles of different agencies in innovation, ranging from the state, to the firm, to the consumer. The next four chapters analyze innovation at different scales. Two chapters review the territorial dimensions of innovation through the fresh perspectives of the national and regional innovation systems, followed by reviews of the determinants of innovation in the firm, and the contested and complex role of entrepreneurship. The final chapter summarises the importance of understanding tourism innovation. This is a groundbreaking volume which provides an accessible introduction to a key but neglected topic. It provides a readable account of the multidisciplinary research on innovation and relates the emerging theoretical framework to tourism. A clear conceptual framework is complemented by fifty boxes which provide a range of illustrative international case studies. This book will be a useful guide for researchers and students of tourism studies, management and business and geography.
