Travel sites are working on personalisation but do consumers notice? | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

Elements of personalisation are creeping into online travel sites as demonstrated by a recent study by eDigitalResearch. The eTravel Benchmark looks at the digital travel experience across a number of criteria including first impressions, search, booking process and design and usability. Booking.com came out on top for the fifth time running for its performance across all channels - desktop, mobile and mobile application. According to the survey, personalised digital experiences are a growing trend although most consumers aren't really aware that content is personalised with only 20 per cent recognising these features.

Les nouvelles technologies au service du tourisme patrimonial et culturel

Les nouvelles technologies au service du tourisme patrimonial et culturel | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it
l’heure où les technologies numériques peuplent de plus en plus nos foyers et notre quotidien, l’économie de la connaissance fait face à un défi de taille (Donnat, 2007). L’approche traditionnelle et classique des pratiques culturelles et des sites patrimoniaux se voit profondément bouleversée par de nouvelles conceptions plus interactives et immersives que jamais (Courvoisier, 2010). Dans ce contexte de plus en plus concurrentiel, les structures touristiques doivent faire preuve de créativité et d’originalité quitte à bousculer leurs stratégies originales.

How Destination Cleveland reimagined community and collaboration - Destination Think! - | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it
Battling negative perceptions – among visitors and locals alike – has never been easy for any destination. And when those negative perceptions result in low visitation, how is a destination meant to change minds? For the city of Cleveland, it meant standing up, squaring its shoulders and facing its detractors head on. By encouraging, facilitating and curating the passionate, authentic stories of the residents who were proud of their city, Destination Cleveland activated its locals and helped reshape the story of the city. Negative perceptions turned positive and Cleveland’s pride shone. Destination Cleveland rebranded and reimagined itself as an orchestrator of community collaboration.

Destination marketers need to learn from the past to shape a healthier tourism future - Destination Think! - | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it
2016 may be a year of reckoning for the tourism industry. In her recent article, “Are the eggs of the tourism goose starting to crack?”, strategic advisor and Founder of Concious Travel Anna Pollock calls out systemic problems within the tourism industry that have dire consequences for destinations, residents and travellers. Among the root causes she mentions are: a) “a reluctance to admit to and deal directly with the negative consequences associated with tourism growth,” b) a failure to focus on the “net benefit” of tourism beyond increasing a place’s GDP and c) not ensuring that residents have a say in the scope, pace and scale of tourism.

Tracking online behaviour and the path to a travel purchase

Tracking online behaviour and the path to a travel purchase | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

With average online travel conversion rates of around 4 per cent, it's no surprise that travel companies are looking throughout hte funnel to see how they might get more out. There are a number of well-publicised issues including the infrequency of trips, the siloed nature of the industry, slim margins and legacy technology. Even when companies can access meaningful data, they often struggle to know what to do with it. A compnay called B-Smark has developed a tool to help travel businesses gather information on purchase intentions by asking people about their online behaviour during the purchase path. Once armed with this information, companies can work on improving recommendations of products and services to customers and drive conversion. The technology enables users to choose a reason they decided to search for, book or share a particular product - in other words, their motivation. Find out more.

In research which could reshape the multi-billion dollar tourism industry, select holidaymakers arriving in Tasmania are handed phones loaded with free data, than tracked via an app as they travel around the state. The result is detailed information on how long someone stands at a lookout, walks through a national park or browses an art gallery - potentially lucrative information for tourism operators. The project, undertaken by Sense-T - a research collaboration involving the University of Tasmania and the state government is the largest and longest of its kind in the world.
