Youth tourism generated over 182b. dollars in tourism receipts in 2013 | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it
Youth tourism generated over 182 billion dollars in tourism receipts in 2013, representing 200 million international trips a year.

 

European Cities Marketing (ECM), the network of leading Tourist Offices and Conventions Bureaux in Europe added youth travel into their strategy during their annual conference on June 4-7 in host city Dresden, considering the opportunity they present for the leisure and meetings industry.

The conference, held at the International Congress Centre Dresden and moderated by Dieter Hardt-Stremayr, dealt with the key topic of “Young travellers, young delegates, young cities – What do we know, what should we do” focusing on three main questions: What do we know about young travellers and conference delegates? What tools are needed to reach this target group? And what is our role as the Destination Management Organisation in this market?

Assises du tourisme en France: les 5 priorités du gouvernement

Assises du tourisme en France: les 5 priorités du gouvernement | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

D’après les conclusions rendues ce 19 juin, la France doit améliorer son accueil et apprendre à mieux se vendre, notamment à travers le numérique.

Après six mois d’échanges et de discussions, le gouvernement a finalement présenté les premières conclusions des Assises du tourisme ce 19 juin.

La secrétaire d'Etat à la promotion du Tourisme et au Commerce Extérieur, Fleur Pellerin, a listé "5 priorités" : mieux vendre la destination France, "lisser les inconforts" qui gênent les touristes et notamment les difficultés pour l'obtention de visa, "retrouver le sens de l'hospitalité", être offensif dans le numérique qui doit être considéré comme "la nouvelle donne du tourisme" et non comme "le grand méchant loup" et aider les Français à partir en vacances plus nombreux.
