Good Practice

 

The tourism-destination App is called “Bestiarium Skaraborg” (based on gaming, augmented reality)

They are in Skaraborg (University of Skövde) developing a mobile phone App similar to the coming reality "Pokemon go" that will be used for the tourism destination Skaraborg. They will in the narration use fairy tale creatures to attract young people.

 

A tradition of transnational cooperation for tourism promotion among the Regions Limburg (NL), Eifel and Aachen Region (GE), Provinces of Liege and Limburg and the German Speaking Community in Belgium (BE) has resulted into joint marketing efforts, including facebook page and trilingual joint promotional website, and is evolving now to the creation of a transnational tourism board.

 

 

VisitCornwall is finalising a programme of overseas marketing for the Region of Cornwall to The Netherlands, Belgium, Scandinavia, Ireland and German Speaking markets plus USA, Australia and New Zealand. This marketing plan is supported by an integrated programme of business development and training.

 

 

The SCOTS (Specialist Counsellor on Travel to Scotland) programme is a specially designed destination training programme for travel agents who sell Scotland to their clients.  It was launched by VisitScotland in 1986 and was originally open to agents in the US and Canada.  In the summer of 2007, the programme was adapted to make it global and there are now qualified agents in China, India, Korea and the Middle East.  In addition to adapting the training programme to make it more global, both a Chinese language and a Japanese language version of the programme have been launched.

 

Current  Position -  November 2014

•The final programme has yet to be approved by the UK Government and EC

•Draft progamme for ESF and ERDF is “sector blind” i.e does not include or exclude any sector

•The high priority is  the value of the employment rather than volume.

•The EARDF programme is nationally administered in the UK and does include a specific reference to rural sustainable tourism development

 

Priorities for Investment-  November 2014
