The evolution of volunteer tourism

The evolution of volunteer tourism | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

Combining volunteering with tourism may seem like a good idea on the surface, but it is usually an excuse for a tour provider to overcharge participants with limited skill sets who think they have something to offer to a poor rural village because they are travelling from the U.S. or another first-world country. Like missionaries, voluntourists typically disrupt local traditions, take business from local workers and leave before the job is finished. And when that job is finished, it is often a poorly built well, school room or orphanage. However, it's not always a nightmare. Skift spoke with Ethan Gelber, editor of "Adventures Less Ordinary: How to Travel and Do Good" about what happens when the reality of volunteerism matches the dream.

Shaping the Future of Travel, macro trends driving industry growth over the next decade

Shaping the Future of Travel, macro trends driving industry growth over the next decade | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it
Amadeus has commissioned Oxford Economics to undertake a study exploring the trends shaping the future of travel, and examining a range of factors including global trends in travel growth, travel in emerging and frontier markets, business travel and seamless travel. This report follows on from, and updates, Oxford Economics’ previous work on global travel trends for Amadeus, The Travel Gold Rush 2020, released in 2010.
Global travel rebounded rapidly from the 2009 financial crisis and is forecast to grow robustly over the next decade. We expect global overnight visitor flows to grow at  5.4% per annum over the next decade, significantly faster than GDP growth of 3.4% and more in line with the expected expansion in global trade flows of 5.8%.

8 Brands Using the Collaborative Economy to Market with the Crowd

8 Brands Using the Collaborative Economy to Market with the Crowd | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it
It pays to share, as the crowd shares your brand for you.

Marketers first adopted the internet and then social media. The next digital phase is the Collaborative Economy. What’s that? If you’ve heard of Airbnb, Uber, Lyft, Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and the Maker Movement, this is the Collaborative Economy.

Just as social media enabled people to create media and then share media, in this next phase, the Collaborative Economy enables people to create their own physical goods as well as share their existing physical goods. In both of these examples, they are using digital technologies to make the sharing happen.
