Tourism marketing has gone through fundamental changes in recent years: the pursuit of global strategies based on strategic alliances, the breakdown of commercial borders and advances in technology. This book presents strategic responses to these issues and includes analysis of the issues and trends in contemporary tourism marketing from an international perspective. Numerous examples and case studies are presented throughout.
