UNWTO Webinar on Institutional Strengthening in Destination Management: Preparing DMOs for new challenges
29 Mai 2019
Lieu: 

Many factors account for the increased focus on effective destination management, all of them urging Destination Management Organizations (DMOs) to face and adapt to new challenges.

This webinar will set the scene on the concept of destination management and DMOs, their current challenges and their role as leading organizations with a broader mandate which includes strategic planning, coordination and management of a full range of activities within an adequate governance structure with the integration of different stakeholders operating in the destination under common goals.

This webinar aims to stress the relevance of having a leading organizational entity at destination level and of setting a sound framework of criteria and indicators for DMOs, based on the UNWTO.QUEST Certification - with the 17 SDGs incorporated in their plans and policies – and it will provide a set of recommendations for DMOs to improve their planning, managing and institutional governance.

In recent years, there has been increasing recognition of the need for sound and planned management of tourism destinations. From traditional marketing and promotion boards the trend is for Destination Management Organizations (DMOs) to become leading organizations with a broader mandate which includes strategic planning, coordination and management of a full range of activities within an adequate governance structure with the integration of different stakeholders operating in the destination under common goals. Destinations where such an organization is not still in place are increasingly creating or plan to create a DMO as the organizational entity to lead the way.

These developments stem from the urge to achieve an optimal management of the destination which ensures that the various authorities, all relevant stakeholders and professionals are coordinated by a leading entity under a coherent strategy and a collective vision in pursuit of a common goal, the competitiveness and sustainability of the destination. This approach should also engage the residents and the local community in the tourism policy and decision-making process and its implementation in a truly Public (P) – Private (P) – Community (C) approach.

Silk Road Tour Operators Forum

Thursday, 7 March 2019; 14:00 - 16:00

Palais West Room, ITB Berlin 2019

The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), supported by ITB Berlin, EastguidesWest and the Phoenicians Route, hosted a 2 hour forum focused on improving cooperation between the various tourism stakeholders active within the sphere of cultural tourism routes.

Following introductory presentations on cooperation opportunities and recent activities happening along the Silk Road and the Phoenicians Route, plus a country presentation by the Republic of Azerbaijan, a training session was held by Mr. Barnany Davies and Ms. Sjannie Hulsman from EastguidesWest centred on stakeholder expectations and service quality.

Both tour operators and locally based Destination Management Companies (DMC’s) face similar difficulties when planning and marketing specialised tours and tourism packages. By looking at best-practice examples currently being implementing within the field, strategies on how to build and maintain trust among partners were discussed. Trustworthiness and service excellence were presented as key elements ensuring a balanced approach between the demand and supply sides of the tourism industry.

UNWTO wishes to express its gratitude to all speakers for their fantastic input, and to all attendants for their time and inte
