Smart tourism smart sustainable profits


Report will enable travel industry to benefit from biggest growth market yet - prepublication offer benefits from 50% discount

It's a tough business and the industry depends on sustainable profits and sustainable tech innovation for sustainable development and to survive in a fast-changing world.

Designed to be a great asset for everybody working in the travel and tourism industry - travel agents and tour operators can benefit greatly from Sustainable Tourism 0.2.

Sustainable Tourism 0.2 is to be published on World Tourism Day/Global Green Destinations Day. It is the new successor to the Sustainable Tourism Report - complex sustainability subjects made simple and without any bureaucratic bias - it is totally independent, innovative and well informed.

Over the last 15 years the Sustainable Tourism Report has spotted the trends and revealed the 'Sharing Economy', Tourism Overcrowding, Tourism Greenwash, and many other key tourism issues - before they took hold. One of the next massive issues will be Smart Tourism and the opportunities for everyone will be fully revealed. The opportunities for everyone in the industry - Travel agents and tour operators, OTAs, transport companies, young people learning about tourism in higher education courses, and all those partners in destinations.

Sustainable Tourism 0.2 will cover:

Destinations - is this where the power will be held? Dozens of case studies from all over the world will show how smart destinations are delivering sustainable benefits for their communities - and for visitors.

Plus the Global Top100 Sustainable Destinations - reviewed and analysed.

Travel Agents and Tour Operators, Online Travel Agents and Tour Operators, Transportation companies, land, sea,air - the story so far and the opportunities on the table.

Climate change - is it an existential threat or a massive opportunity or both? Will carbon offsets come back into fashion and where will airline emissions (currently what make sustainable tourism an oxymoron) take us and ICAO?

Politics & tourism - is this an opportunity for destinations to maximise their power and squeeze the maximum benefits out of tourism for their voters - it is after all

Waste - plastic, effluent, water, power - will these be the biggest and most publicised destination issues

Technology - OTAs, visitor management, virtual tourism - technology has the power to completely change tourism management in destinations - so far we have seen the power of the OTAs to dominate hotel marketing - what's next?

Plus Peace & tourism - has it all become a forlorn dream? Or will it be revitalised? Art & tourism - can it deliver massive value-added? Food and tourism - possibly the most sustainable issue of them all.

Plus - YOUR QUESTION. If you feel that something sustainable and important is not being covered you'll have an opportunity to do so.

The report is specifically created to be of use to: Travel agents and tour operators, Tourism Ministers, Destination Managers, Travel and Tourism Executives, Higher Education Organisations with tourism courses.
