Destination Management BMA311

Hobart

Introduction

This unit demonstrates the need for an integrated approach to the planning, development and marketing of a destination. The concept of destination is examined at the national, state, regional and local levels, and issues such as destination branding, managing destinations in crisis, and the impacts of visitors on destinations, are explored. The unit also explores the role and functions of governments in policy, planning, regulation and management of tourism destinations. Specific emphasis is placed on Tasmania as a visitor destination.
