Have you noticed that in the development of tourism, there is plenty of talk about trends and change factors such as sustainability, responsibility and low-carbon tourism? Phenomena related to tourism and the needs, expectations and consumer behaviour of tourists are changing, as are the operating environment and development principles of tourism centres and regions.
The importance of sustainable development increases with tourism
Growth in tourism makes it necessary to take sustainability into account in a new way. Sustainability is linked to the development of tourism both at the strategic level in defining development guidelines, and at the operational level in the everyday actions and choices of tourism companies and operators. Tourism should bring economic prosperity and employment, as well as environmental and sociocultural sustainability, including over the long term. Tourists should also feel welcome, get value for money and have their expectations met.
Trends and silent signals act as change factors in the development of tourism
The development of tourism is a time-bound and place-specific matter of defining strategic choices and measures that are necessary to identify changes in tourism issues and the needs of tourists. The dominant themes are sustainable tourism and responsibility, and digital and intelligent mobility services, which we consider in the development of tourism. So, what are the following phenomena that need to be taken into account? As a pioneer in the industry, we strive to outline how emerging factors can be reflected in the reorganisation of structures and services.
