Tourism routes and trails : theory and practice by David Ward-Perkins( )

15 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tourism Routes and Trails plunges into the world of 'extended' tourism, offering an exploration of the 'routes' phenomenon whereby tourism is no longer for a given destination, but extends over multiple sites, a territory or landscape. Covering how such routes are created, often as ways of clustering experiences, it also reviews their effects on tourism businesses, local populations and other stakeholders. Emphasising the critical role of local communities, volunteers and small businesses, as well as those who provide strategic direction and funding, the book: - Is based in tourism theory, but focuses on the models and practice of route formation; - Includes a rich selection of contemporary examples and cases, showing the reader best practice as well as illustrating challenges and risks; - Covers both strategic issues of concern to nations, regions and local authorities, and the complex dynamics occurring on the ground, such as the role of grass-roots organisations and local communities. Routes allow destinations to diversify their offer and spread the economic and social benefits of tourism. With tourist behaviour increasingly shifting to thematic experiences, this book shows how to create these in a way that is both meaningful for visitors and beneficial for the destination. Suitable for tourism policy makers, economic development agencies and local stakeholders, it is also a vital resource for the next generation; students of tourism, sociology, local politics and economic development"--

Slow Tourism and Wine in Alsace by David Ward-Perkins( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Alsace region has been particularly successful in creating a unique and recognisable identity, based on traditional values. Alsace has become a quality destination for 'slow' tourism, combining visits to picturesque villages, walking, cycling, gastronomy and cultural events. Tourism is structured around a number of complementary axes, labelled 'themes of excellence'. Wine tourism is the most important of these. Created in 1953, La Route des Vins d'Alsace, has become a cornerstone and a catalyst for a multitude of other initiatives and offers
Pilgrimage Trails in Japan's Kii Peninsula by David Ward-Perkins( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Kii Peninsula boasts an exceptional heritage of ancient temples and monasteries. These assets have been opened up to tourism through the development of pilgrimage walking routes, attractive both to religious and cultural tourists. The Kumano Kodo trails link rural communities and small towns (population of 30,000-75,000) that are around 3 hours from major cities and that have few resources apart from small-scale agriculture and tourism. Religious tourism and pilgrimage are at the heart of the tourism proposition. The numbers of 'authentic' pilgrims (Japanese) and cultural tourists, including from overseas, are both growing. The case demonstrates how the tourism authorities have handled the risk of short-visit mass tourism by putting the focus on slower, experiential forms of tourism that encourage longer dwell time
Managing Tourism Expansion in the Soca Valley (Slovenia) by Gaëlle Connolly( )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Soca Valley is the fastest-growing destination in Slovenia, with an international reputation that has been rising over the last 10 years. This is largely due to a growing demand Europe-wide for active outdoor tourism, but also to quality product development at the local level, backed by well-coordinated marketing and distribution. The case offers a glimpse into the inner workings of the Soca Valley Tourist Board, including its activities, resources, and budgeting. It recounts the Board's concerns regarding the long-tern sustainability of the current tourism models, as the Valley faces challenges relating to infrastructure, seasonality, capacity, and quality of services. Even before the Covid-19 pandemic, the strategies of the Tourist Board were shifting. In 2019 work began on a new tourism development and marketing strategy for the period up to 2025, based on different goals and values, affecting the entire Soca Valley
Tourism Development in the Trentino by David Ward-Perkins( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The case study shows the transformation of Trento and its region into a successful tourist destination (from 100,000 overnight stays in 1989 to 1 million in 2015). The economic development was enabled by a progressive strengthening of the bonds between the city and its surrounding territory, the development of a diverse and complementary offering of experiences and business tourism as an important component in the development of the destination. The case study details the development and implementation of the strategy by the destination and its various partners and look at the array of game changers policies and investment undertaken since the 1990s as well as the winning marketing strategies deployed

Slave Trade Heritage in Ghana by David Ward-Perkins( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recent movements in the United States in favour of African-American rights have highlighted many issues, including a tragic aspect of the slave trade: that millions were robbed not only of their freedom in being transported to another continent but also of their heritage, including their language, their memories and their cultural traditions. Among West African countries involved in the transatlantic slave trade, Ghana was one of the most important and the Ghana Tourism Authority has recognized that a return to the continent of their roots may offer some consolation. In 2019, to mark the 400 years since enslaved black people first arrived in America, the GTA launched the 'Year of Return' campaign, honouring the resilience of black people around the world and encouraging them to return to Ghana to explore their roots and ancestry. The campaign was promoted and supported by many influencers and celebrities from both sides of the Atlantic. African Americans were invited to Ghana not only to honour their ancestors' memory, visit heritage sites, and enjoy the attractions such as the music, beaches and nightlife, but also to network and build connections longer term. A 'Beyond the Return' campaign has positioned Ghana as a land of opportunity for the global African family - whether in agriculture, real estate, creative arts or other fields - and it invites black people from around the world to invest socially and financially in the country. The authorities are committed to foster those international connections with simplified visa application process and offering the chance to obtain citizenship through special programmes
Catalonia, a Food Hub by David Ward-Perkins( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catalonia has been developing as a food hub for 25 to 30 years. The autonomous region's ambition is to remain a world leader in the production and preparation of local food. Catalonia has demonstrated that a comprehensive food offer, with multiple components - farming practices, food processing, gastronomy and tourism promotion - can be transformative. This case study describes how. Behind the drive to become a world-renowned food hub, we find many local initiatives, primarily in rural areas. Some of the greatest chefs in the world have set up home in small towns, some distance from Barcelona, and work very closely with local producers. These chefs operate in a network, hiring apprentices that will open their own restaurants and carry on the tradition. This emphasis on quality food and rigorous training spills over into the big cities, but the initiative is essentially rural. The regional and city tourism authorities, concerned with overtourism in Barcelona, have seized on the theme to encourage tourists to leave the city to discover the agricultural and gastronomic heritage of remoter areas
