7 Cities Transforming Their Rivers From Blights to Beauties – WIRED

7 Cities Transforming Their Rivers From Blights to Beauties – WIRED | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

LOS ANGELES WANTS to rethink its river. Late last month, Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that Gruen Associates, Mia Lehrer + Associates, and Oyler Wu would be designing the last twelve miles of the Los Angeles River Valley Bikeway and Greenway. The scheme, encompassing a new bike, trail, and park network from Canoga Park, in the San Fernando Valley to Elysian Valley just outside Downtown, is the latest of several initiatives set to transform the former flood control channel into an actual river. The city, county, and federal government are reshaping the river and restoring ecosystems; several parks, trails, and amenities have already popped up; and development is following quickly behind. And LA isn’t the only metropolis looking to reclaim its once-mocked waterway. Cities around the world are realizing that water can be a cultural and recreational asset, not something to hide or pillage, and it seems no waterway will be wasted for long.

3 steps to address change management in your destination - Destination Think! - | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it
Change is hard, but doing nothing is a choice with consequences. If you’ve chosen to embrace change, the next logical question is, “How?” Change management is one of the greatest challenges facing leaders of destination marketing organizations (DMOs). Those who seek to help their organizations adapt need a consistent and focused approach in order to make an impact.

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.

Hospitality Net - Top 2016 locations for Chinese millennial travellers | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it
Outbound Chinese travellers could number around 174 million by 2019, spending $264 billion annually. This
sum is roughly equivalent to the GDP of a developed country like Singapore. Chinese millennials is the
generation that constitutes the largest share of China's travellers, as they already constitute 40% of Chinese
outbound travels. Chinese millennials are thirstier than previous generations for the international experience.
Indeed, the average wealthy Chinese millennial has been to 13 countries and travelled abroad 3.3 times for
leisure in the past year alone for an average of 25 days. With respect to Chinese millennials, it is advisable to
view them as "travellers" rather than "tourists", as they prefer to respond to opportunities to plan their own
customised trips. Chinese millennials mostly travel for the purposes of leisure or exploring the world. In this
article we shall present the most popular travel locations for Chinese millennial travellers.

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.
