After completing the research project on Pee Dee’s tourism development, Dr. Fang Meng continued working with the Center’s team on a feasibility study of an international horse park in Aiken, South Carolina in Spring 2012. Dr. Meng presented a research paper based on the Pee Dee’s project findings on the Travel and Tourism Research Association (TTRA) conference in June 2012, in which she and co-author Dr. Simon Hudson won the Best Paper Award.
