Destination Management BMA311



This unit serves the overall purpose of linking the content of the core tourism units through the processes of policy formulation and planning. The 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, the impacts of visitors on destinations and destination events are explored. The role and functions of governments in policy, planning, regulation and management of tourism also forms a core part of the unit. The unit places specific emphasis on Tasmania as a visitor destination. This year the unit is being offered in a condensed format in Winter School.
