The course is based on lectures and specific examples of destination marketing. The emphasis is on how place identity and image are developed and how different symbols can be used to build and market tourism. Students are introduced to the concepts and tools of marketing in theory and practice with a focus on service and tourism activities. Students develop skills in analysing how places and tourism attractions are emphasised in the form of image and text, and produce a communication plan for a destination. Ethical and sustainability issues in tourism marketing are included.
