Destination Stewardship: taking a closer look at Boracay and Visit Flanders - Thursday 23 August
Overcrowding in tourism destinations is a problem which will only be fixed by long-term planning involving all stakeholders, not short-term knee-jerk reactions. This webinar will go through WTTC and McKinsey & Company's framework 'Coping with success: Managing overcrowding in tourism destinations' and take a look at two key examples.
1. The island of Boracay: what happened to force its closure and what change needs to happen to the island’s infrastructure, governance and Travel & Tourism to ensure a prosperous recovery?
2. Visit Flanders: How one destination can actively manage, coordinate and re-create its strategy to ensure the long term viability in and of the destination.
Date: Thursday 23 August 2018
Time: 2:00PM - 3:00PM BST
