It explores how the various tourist destination systems including tourist, places (as seen by the tourist), public and private tourism organisations and the social and physical environment can effectively communicate and co operate together at a profit for each. Advances in Destination Marketing offers a comprehensive review of a wide range of aspects related to marketing tourism products including networks in destinations, consumer experiences in destinations, destination branding, destination image, events in destinations and destination tourism products. Throughout the book a network analysis perspective is applied to offer alternative solutions of how each system can share network knowledge and system knowledge so profits can be created effectively and maximised. The exploration of new topics such as Destination Networks and Destination Branding as well as original international empirical research and case studies from well known researchers in the area, provides new thinking on Marketing Tourism Destinations. The relevance of the arguments and the salient conclusions are valuable in the study of an ever dynamic and burgeoning industry. This stimulating volume will be of interest to higher level students, academics, researchers within Tourism and practitioners in the industry.

Tourism Research: a 20:20 vision examines how research agendas have evolved and might develop in coming years, consider conceptual and methodological advances, discuss obstacles that have been encountered and suggest ways forward. Its underpinning objective is to better understand how and why tourism research advances, or why it does not, and to provide a clearer sense of direction for researchers in this field. In this edited collection of reflective, challenging and sometimes provocative papers, derived from the 20th Anniversary meeting of the International Academy for the Study of Tourism, leading international tourism scholars from a range of disciplines, analyse what progress has been made in tourism research in the last two decades and where research might go in the future. These insights from acknowledged international experts in their field are invaluable to the current generation as well as new and emerging tourism researchers who will benefit from a greater understanding of how the field of tourism studies has evolved, what factors have shaped its development and how it might develop in the future. The collection begins with a series of stimulating broader perspectives on progress in tourism research. The next two sections focus on advances in research on tourism development and the business of tourism and on the path tourism research has taken in particular parts of the world which have experienced a significant growth in tourism in recent years. The final section considers more recent and emerging themes in tourism research and discusses how research on new topics arises and might proceed. In the concluding chapter, the editors identify lessons learnt and suggest ways forward.
