Our Services for Destinations:
Design of participation processes:
Involving all different interest groups is crucial for a successful sustainable positioning of a destination.
Making use of their knowledge by involving the local population reduces the risk of conflicts between tourism and local everyday life.
Cultural characteristics and local traditions can thus be made accessible to tourists, enhancing the individual character of their stay.
Tourists / Visitors:
The sustainable development of a destination will turn out successful if it meets the expectations of its guests. These expectations can vary greatly between destinations and should therefore be taken care of individually. Profiles of strengths and weaknesses of a destination can also be derived from such a survey, which may serve as a basis for the design of future measures.
Stakeholders in the tourism industry:
The tourism industry is a significant factor in the implementation and communication of the measures for sustainable development. Therefore, stakeholders should be involved extensively and at an early stage. Through direct contact with guests on the one hand and the local population on the other, they are an interface and important source of information.
b-tourism designs individually tailored participation processes with the destination management and prepares the results for further processes in the best way possible.
Translating the information into a model for sustainable tourism development
What values of ecological and social sustainability does a destination stand for, and which of these would it like to represent?
How can an authentic tourist experience be created without impairing the local people’s everyday life?
What does a destination have to offer its guests in order for them to have the most positive impact on the destination during their stay?
How can local stakeholders be fully involved in sustainable development?
b-tourism helps to find answers to these questions and helps to create the basis for processes of continuous improvement.
