The article substantiates the hypothesis that the driving force of the development of modern tourist spaces is the sustainable reproduction of regional highly competitive tourist products. At the same time, the authors understand tourist spaces as such coordinates of human life, in which it is provided in the free space-time conditions of the spatial structure of regions, covering natural, territorial, economic, cultural-historical and other formations. That is, we are talking about such spatial and temporal coordinates of regions in which there is a mutual combination of the interests of tourists and the local population on the issues of regulating the demand from tourist flows and supply from the tourist sector of the economy in the space of the regions.
At the same time, the authors substantiate the idea that at the present stage the tourism sector has formed into an independent integral open system, which, from a synergistic point of view, already possesses the properties of self-development. The key role in the formation of these properties is played by the parameters of the order of self-organization of the tourism sector known in the theory of self-organization of systems. In turn, their understanding reveals the possibilities of improving the current management system for the development of the tourism sector of the regional economy, which are available only in the context of the use of the latest information technologies and the digitalization of industries involved in serving tourists. In particular, we are talking about the formation of tourist technological platforms, systems of indicators of the competitiveness of regional tourist products, etc. This provides the real prospects for transforming the tourism sector of the regional economy into a driver of Russia's socio-economic development and identifying key areas for its technological breakthroughs.
