International tourism growth beats early estimates

International tourism growth beats early estimates | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

International tourism is on track to hit a new record with more than 1.1 billion international tourists crossing borders. The number of international tourists grew 5% through the first 10 months of 2014, exceeding the UNWTO's expectation of 4.5% growth. A total of 978 million international tourists crossed borders last year, 45 million more than in the same period of 2013. These are remarkable results considering that different parts of the world continue to face significant geopolitical and health challenges, while the global economic recovery remains rather fragile and uneven.

Quietly, quietly, a Chinese online travel giant prepares to take on the world

Quietly, quietly, a Chinese online travel giant prepares to take on the world | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it
Last week’s announcement that “Ctrip.com has partnered with Amadeus to power its global expansion” has largely gone unnoticed, despite some very clear indications that this could be a significant moment in the evolution of online travel.
Ctrip’s has not responded to requests for interviews nor written responses to emailed questions. Amadeus was more forthcoming, in its carefully worded way.
The clues are all there in the release issued by Amadeus’ Singapore office. Ctrip itself appears to have said nothing officially other than a quote in the release and a bylined blog post on Amadeus’ corporate site from Xiong Xing, CEO of Ctrip’s Air Ticketing Business Unit, Ctrip.

Ski Resorts Are Looking to Diversify Their Offerings

Ski Resorts Are Looking to Diversify Their Offerings | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it
Trying to hold onto skier dollars as visitors seek more options, ski resorts have branched into snowshoeing, sleigh rides, and increasingly, cross-country skiing.

Jeff Knight, a 49-year-old novice snowboarder from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, has visited Steamboat a number of times over the past four years, but had never considered cross-country skiing, also called Nordic skiing, until he spotted the trails while driving.

“We noticed it from the street and then called,” said Knight, an electrical contractor. “We love snowshoeing and when we found out that Haymaker converted the golf course into a Nordic track, we thought it would be a great thing to add to the repertoire.”

Evaluating and evolving the role of the DMO

Evaluating and evolving the role of the DMO | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

In this article, Destination Marketing Association International sits down with Anita Mendiratta, one of the most respected global strategic advisors in Tourism and Economic Development, to get her take on the findings and implications for the industry. Anita describes the importance of DMOs collaborating with the private sector and forming public/private partnerships in marketing and managing a destination, along with outlining the metrics that matter when it comes to tourism development. According to Anita, growth is fuelled by the importance of travel and tourism at four levels: economic, political, social and psychological. These pillars must be considered by DMO's seeking to make a positive impact on destination growth, development, identity and competitiveness. Click here to learn more about how to build and protect the destination brand for tomorrow's DMO.
