Humans are story tellers an we need to go back to telling good stories. If this is done correctly, you can harness consumer stories to build your brand.

A modern brand is what people think about your destination and stay about your destination, not a tagline or a fancy logo.

This presentation uses practical examples to give you some best practice tips to implement on your own.

The presentation is focused on destinations, but the lessons are application to anyone in the tourism industry.

  • AARON: Worth mentioning that this it’s happening whether you’re involved in the conversation or not? Ie: they ARE marketing for you, for better or worse. You need to be on top of it, etc.
