Civics & Society

How will shifting tourism trends impact tourists and destinations alike in the future?

Background

Tourism not only benefits host locales but those on holiday. Travel enriches their lives, expands their understanding of people and cultures, while also serving as a respite from daily life. The economic stability of such destinations depends on the sustainability of their tourist trade. As the popularity of such destinations grows, international corporations and developers typically flock to these growing places, trying to capitalize on the financial possibilities. There is money to be made in building hotels, restaurants, and in developing an area’s growing tourism industry.

Context

As outside groups seek to attract tourists and the revenue they generate, locals often struggle to maintain their location’s unique appeal and ability to support local venues. As this build-up occurs, local people can have their cultures exploited, lands destroyed, and their local businesses put in jeopardy. As the tourism sector grows and expands, we are seeing the expansion of the Special Interest (SIT) market – tourists wishing to match their vacations with their interests (e.g., ecotourism, wellness tourism, event tourism, ancestry tourism, etc.).

Challenge

     

      • How will changing forms and trends of tourism impact tourists and hosts alike? 

      • How can the advantages of expanding tourism be balanced with the protection of destinations?
