Tourism is the world's largest industry. Destinations compete for tourists worldwide, and the flow of tourists and their economic, sociocultural, and environmental impacts are felt on an international basis. The tourism industry consists of four primary operational sectors: accommodations and food service (hospitality), attractions, and transportation, as well as its development, promotion, and distribution system components. Many companies within each of its operational sectors and systems are owned, managed, and operated on an international level.
