Description & Coverage
Description:

Digital communication is significantly expanding new opportunities and challenges in the tourism industry. Tourists, now more frequently than ever, bring their smartphones with them to every destination, and cultural tourists are particularly motivated to utilize a variety of services and platforms as they are especially open and interested in understanding in detail the places and heritage of the places they visit. Thus, researchers, educators, and professionals in the tourism and hospitality field should take advantage of this opportunity to propose new ways of presenting better content and creating a more immersive and optimized experience for tourists.

The Handbook of Research on Digital Communications, Internet of Things, and the Future of Cultural Tourism shares research and experiences on the convergence between digital communication and cultural tourism, specifically the migration and creative appropriation of these technologies for increased tourist engagement and their role in destination marketing and strategic planning and decision making. Covering topics such as big data, e-tourism, and social media platforms, this major reference work is an invaluable resource for researchers, students, professors, academicians, government entities, museum managers, professionals, and cultural tourism managers and facilitators.

Reviews & Statements

I believe that the main advantage of the book, and specifically our chapter is that it connects related subjects. In our days, it is a general problem that everyone is sinking in his/her own subjects, they become good experts of an area but do not look around and try to connect to the surrounding branches. Our own chapter connects heritage tourism and marketing whereas we discuss the same issue. This is what has happened to the whole book: Digital Communications, Internet of Things, and the Future of Cultural Tourism examines the new ways of communication that have a basic impact on cultural tourism and all the related subjects. It is a very good example for showing that cooperation of various industries is absolutely unavoidable, and this is the best way towards a feasible future of all territories.
