Every year researchers focused on tourism and heritage studies gather together at the SfAA meetings. Whether presenting, visiting, or judging, students and educators of the anthropology of tourism come together to share and generate cutting edge ideas at various forums and one in particular: the Valene Smith Tourism Poster Competition. This particular poster competition can be traced to a day-long session on tourism at the 1974 American Anthropological Association meetings in Mexico City, organized by Professor Valene Smith. The papers in that session were subsequently published in the influential text, Hosts and Guests: The Anthropology of Tourism, edited by Dr. Valene Smith. As the organizer of the session and editor of the book, Valene Smith is often referred to as the "mother" or matron of tourism studies.
