We are faced with interesting times in social demography, economics, cultural transformation that all have impact on business and the tourism industry.
This session considers the current state of regional visitor economies, and the forces and trends helping and hindering tourism destination and attendant visitor economy development at a regional level. This session will aim to bring these current social trends, issues and opportunities to the attention of participants whilst tailoring it to the tourism environment.
Participants will have the opportunity to consider their destination and visitor economies using frameworks, recognise the value and possibilities of networks and partnerships, and make informed choices that can impact better outcomes for their future.
