Volume 37

AI for SMART destination stewardship
Destinations have a persistent tendency to grow in unsustainable ways for the short-term benefit of powerful industry actors and the long-term detriment of host communities. The incidence of Overtourism and industry bailouts by destination governments during the COVID 19 pandemic have magnified the call for tourism to build back better. This will require performance metrics beyond structured data like number of visitors and tourism revenues, because “you can only manage what you measure.” Accordingly, this webinar will focus on how artificial intelligence is used to analyse massive streams of unstructured resident and visitor data fused with structured data to create destination stewardship performance metrics to allow destinations to become ever more competitive and generate measurable socio-economic benefits to their host communities.
