Food and Wine festival brings tourists to Mudgee | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

The first weekend of Mudgee's annual Food and Wine Festival has drawn big crowds to town, with its program of wine tastings and bottling classes proving popular for tourists. During the next two weeks the festival will feature more than sixty events showcasing the region's local wine and produce.

 

The CEO of Mudgee Region Tourism, Holly Manning, says this year's program includes some new attractions and activities.

She says while Mudgee is renowned as a wine destination, there is much more on offer for tourists than just wine tasting.

Go niche or your visitors will go home. - Destination Think! - | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it
Many marketers’ intuitions urge them to go bigger, reach more people, get larger exposure and become more famous. This gives many destination marketers a (perfectly natural) mortal fear that focusing and reducing the size of their marketing audience is a dangerous move. But with careful consideration and testing, the rewards often outweigh the risk. Despite the typical quest for growth, the business case for mass reach is still a faulty destination marketing idea.

The traveller’s path to destination selection

The traveller’s path to destination selection | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

A new study from Expedia Media Solutions and comScore reveals trends in how American, British and Canadian travellers choose a destination. The study shows that travellers frequently begin the planning and research process with more than one destination in mind. There are many factors that can influence where travellers book a trip, from recommendations, social media images, travel information sites and much more. Across the board in all three regions studied, online travel agencies and recommendations from friends and family are the leading resources for selecting a destination. The potential for advertising to influence destination decisions is significant as many consumers keep several locations in mind until the end of their purchase cycle. Find out how travel marketers can connect their brand with shoppers throughout the purchase path.
