Groundbreaking tourism report to be released next month

Report will include special features on:  Silk Road Destinations; food and tourism; the destination of the future and - the massive value of sustainability

For destinations there are all the practical examples they need to get big sustainable economic benefits; to enhance culture, to fund social initiatives and to steward their environments. To use tourism to make their homes better places to live in.

The report is also designed for students to get  key shareable, readable, independent, innovative, practical tourism facts, figures, forecasts and case studies designed to be iconoclastic and inspirational and to enable them to think different and creatively.

In the last sustainable tourism reports, the authors correctly predicted the success of the 'Sharing Economy' the massive growth of the OTAs, the growth of sustainable destinations and more.

SustainableTourism02 will be published on World Tourism Day/Green Destination Day - 27 September.

Vision readers have the opportunity to reserve a copy at a special pre-publication price here: and gain 100% of the advantages.

The report will include four special features:

The Great Silk Road - the biggest opportunity ever to brand heritage and adventure tourism - vast untapped tourism wealth and development for 34 Silk Road countries

Food and tourism sustainability to deliver SME development, higher tourism spend, enhanced destination marketing and branding.

The destination of the future - strong, profitable a great place to live

Sustainable tourism why? The overwhelming case for economic, social, cultural environmental sustainability in tourism

  • Dozens of case studies from all over the world will show how smart destinations are delivering sustainable benefits for their communities - and for visitors
  • The Global Top100 Sustainable Destinations - reviewed and analysed.
  • Tourism in the perspective of the last 60 years - the story so far and the opportunities on the table now and in the future for travel agents and tour operators, online travel agents and tour operators and transportation companies.
  • 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 - A chance for destination managers and politicians to maximise their destination's opportunities and squeeze the maximum benefits out of tourism for their communities? - for most destinations, tourism is a massive vote getter!
  • 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 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. The report is delivered as a .pdf file and can be shared easily with your destination community and your destination partners.
