2014 St. Gallen Consensus on destination management

Zac Woolfitt's insight:

Paper summarises recent convention including definitions of key destination management terms.

 

"This paper summarizes the main insights of the second Biennial Forum on Advances in Destination Management (ADM), held in St. Gallen (Switzerland). Issues in five domains preoccupied the discourse of scholars and practitioners alike: (1) the definition of ‘destination’, (2) the purpose and legitimacy of destination management organizations (DMO), (3) governance and leadership in destination networks, (4) destination branding, and (5) sustainability."

Zafer Cengiz's comment, April 26, 2:36 PM
Good news to hear about minor improvements on DMO concept, where tho whole World needs this medicine for developing a healthy TT Industry at regional & National levels. BUT to attain the 5 titles mentioned above, I must underline that "proper NGOs are needed to be functional" for organizing these activities, within the support of all related regional stakeholders!
