The intricate issues of creativity and sustainability are ongoing problems in the hospitality and tourism field. As a result of the recent ongoing challenges facing hospitality and tourism, developing and advancing research methods are exceedingly necessary to hospitality and tourism practitioners and academics. It is especially significant to call for more focused efforts on research publication in journals that encompass more established and traditional disciplines, academia, and industry.
This special issue thus calls for papers from postgraduates, Ph.D. students, Ph.D. candidates, new assistant professors, and graduating students. As an excellent opportunity to publish more papers, this issue also provides researchers with a pathway to participate in the 8th Advances in Hospitality and Tourism Marketing and Management (AHTMM) conference, which will bring together other researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to meet and share recent developments in their field. After the conference, there will be one month for contributors to revise their paper submissions.

By taking a pragmatic perspective, the guest editor welcomes all types of conceptual, empirical, and methodological research papers that focus on different creativity and sustainability themes in the hospitality and tourism domain.
