Handling success: innovation in visitor management for destinations
Technology has been a key enabler of success for destinations in recent years. Increased technological capability has facilitated sophisticated search and recommendation engines that take consumers directly to what they are looking for, so more visitors can book what they want. The natural cap of accommodation availability has been lifted by the rise of the peer-to-peer economy platforms offering additional options for more visitors. Visitor numbers have therefore increased, to the extent that legislation and infrastructure can struggle to keep pace with the changes. Whilst increased visitor numbers can be viewed as success for destinations, it requires new solutions for handling this. What innovations and examples can we draw on for managing this success? And what might success look like for destinations in the next few years?
