Breakout Sessions: Set VI
Geotourism encompasses a destination’s assets of culture, heritage and natural environment. This collection of experiences illustrates a destination’s “sense of place.” As a holistic unique selling point, sense-of-place can boost tourism revenue and keep visitors coming back. Communities embracing geotourism practice sustainable destination stewardship, benefiting both residents and visitors.
In this presentation, media from a variety of notable publications will offer insights on authentic travel experiences, featuring examples, trends and story ideas.
