Should You Build in an Emerging Destination?
With more people traveling and more spending occurring at destinations, tourism offers an attractive option for economic development. This is particularly true for emerging market destinations where employment opportunities are limited. But, this option comes with strings attached: without planning and management by public authorities, local businesses and communities, tourism can easily transform once appealing places into noisy, crowded, polluted, inhospitable and ultimately uncompetitive destinations. While it is certainly possible and sometimes profitable to operate a hospitality business in an unappealing environment, logic dictates that when visitors feel more comfortable at a destination, they will spend more money there. Hospitable, well-managed surroundings do boost local development, employment and business.
Emerging destinations are often resource-challenged – short on the necessary human resources, management systems, technology and budget — to compete effectively and efficiently.
When it comes to location development, destinations with deep pocket budgets can afford a “Field of Dreams” – “if you build it, they will come” – approach to developing such an environment. But, very few locations have this luxurious option. Instead, most competitive and economically successful destinations develop based on careful planning and community consensus coordinated and managed by Destination Management Organizations (DMOs).
DMOs help hotels, restaurants, attractions and tourist-related places, whether in well-established or emerging market destinations, compete more efficiently and profitably.
Whether these DMOs are organized in private, public or partnerships structures, they can utilize a range of tools to promote, track and manage a destination’s competitive position. From visitor surveys to an assortment of internet and cloud-based e-tourism solutions, DMOs can leverage tools that maximize a destination’s profits, revenue and community benefits, while minimizing costs across attractions and businesses.
