Tourism professionals at Convention and Visitors Bureaus – CVBs (or Destination Marketing Organizations – DMOs) are implementing some innovative programs to increase visitation in their destinations. We call them Tourism Best Practices, named one of the “Top 15 Tourism Marketing Blogs And Websites To Follow in 2018.”

 

Destination marketing campaigns…

Little Rock (AR) CVB Brands a Streetcar in Free-ride Promotion

Visit Faroe Islands’ Encourages a Tourist-Free Weekend

Visit Faroe Islands’ tourism push goes viral, but that shouldn’t detract from the underlying sentiment. The tiny destination is trying to stave off the pitfalls of overtourism even as it promotes itself on the world stage.

Kerala Tourism (India) Produces Film to Show Signature Assets

Other DMOs look to events to draw visitors…

Fayetteville (AR) Hosts Wonka Walk

Moosehead Lake (Maine) Hosts Chocolate Festival

Franklin (TN) Hosts Scavenger Hunt

Hannibal (IL) Hosts Art Sculpture Event

LOVE what Tuscarawas County CVB (Ohio) is doing! Holding Tourism Talk. The session for stakeholders will share ways to market in Ohio. More DMOs should be holding sessions like these to help their local attractions, restaurants, and/or lodging facilities.

Finally, we all know “two heads are better than one.” Congrats on the new partnership between St. Charles (IL) Visitors Bureau and Downtown St. Charles Partnership. The organization will be called One St. Charles.
