Le Québec veut attirer les touristes aventuriers

Le Québec veut attirer les touristes aventuriers | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

Tourisme Québec a organisé un éductour du 27 août au 2 septembre dans l’Ouest de la Belle-Province avec 8 femmes, spécialistes de la destination. L’objectif : mettre en valeur cette zone méconnue du Québec, terre d’exploration et d’aventures.

Tout le monde connaît Montréal ou la ville de Québec, mais les régions de l’Outaouais et de l’Abitibi Témiscamingue gagnent aussi à être découvertes. Pendant plusieurs siècles, elles ont accueilli des milliers de pionniers, rêvant de trouver fortune dans les centaines de mine d’or que compte la région. Si l’industrie minière est toujours une activité prépondérante pour ces territoires, ce sont les grands espaces et le tourisme d’aventure que Bonjour Québec veut faire connaître au marché français.

How Destinations Turn Locals Into Their Best Brand Ambassadors

How Destinations Turn Locals Into Their Best Brand Ambassadors | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

Most talk around destination marketing today is about the timelapse videos,branded content, and social media campaigns that places around the world are creating to reach travelers.

All of those efforts; however, start in a place’s own hometown and mean little unless local stakeholders are as interested in welcoming and fostering tourism as the local visitor and convention board.

 

Educating and training local stakeholders on the economic importance of tourism is as critical to a destination’s long-term success as raising awareness to tourists around the globe. These destinations use a mix of old and new techniques; however, there’s always room for innovation.
