Main Description

 

The papers presented in these four booklets were presented at the ATLAS Conference "Destinations Revisited" held at Viana do Castelo in northern Portugal.In terms of the styles of tourism many of the authors address what we may broadly term as cultural themes which include, museums, handicrafts, gastronomy and religion which serve as a focus for among others marketing and planning studies.
 
As destinations were the prime focus of the meeting it should come as no surprise to find that the destinations and issues discussed ranged across the continents from Peru to Malaysia although again, as one would anticipate, Portuguese destinations and topics are well represented. The diversity of destinations is matched by the diversity of topics which include both overarching principles and themes such as destination marketing and cultural tourism as well as research topics which have emerged recently such as the analysis of web based expressions of satisfaction / dissatisfaction with the destination offer.
 
In terms of the styles of tourism many of the authors address what we may broadly term as cultural themes which include, museums, handicrafts, gastronomy and religion which serve as a focus for among others marketing and planning studies.
 
The diversity of the papers submitted defied simple categorisation and there is inevitably a limited degree of overlap in the following four part publication:
Part 1 Visitors,
Part 2 Attractions,
Part 3 Cultures and cities,
Part 4 Destination management and marketing.
