  6. 6.  Destination Marketing Associations;  Ecotourism, Agra tourism And Heritage Tourism Entities; The Philosophy Sustainable tourism development is based in comprehensively planned and managed land use on a regional basis. Whether it is a sports stadium, a golf course, a recreational trailway system or a remote wilderness experience, adjacent land use can support or destroy a tourism experience. Sustainable Tourism Development depends upon planning at a regional level, creative place making, professional staffing and world-class marketing. Tourism development requires a balance of four seasonal attractions, accommodations, food and beverage services, and retail services. Each stage of the tourism experience must be planned for awareness, enroute, arrival, recreational opportunities and departure and viewed through the eyes not only of the producer and tourist, but also that of the host community. All too often tourism development gets bogged down in the creation of mission statements and business planning, which brings a degree of comfort to the financial community but kills the project. Some aspects of tourism are easy to quantify, such as counting “Heads in Beds” for a sports tournament while others, such as the value of a vista are more difficult to determine and may have a greater impact on local economies. The true value is often not realized until the resource is gone. Often the important issues of training and resource management are overlooked and the result is the tourism event is loved to death, over-use leading to early demise or a reputation for bad service. This leads to short-term gain leading to an over saturated, degraded environment. Skills And Strengths Consultants, like people everywhere, have different strengths and skills. For best results, you should try to match the sort of problem you want to solve to the skills and experience available from a particular consulting firm. To aid in this process, MJA Consulting is happy to put forward a list of the company’s strengths: 1. Business Process Review: MJA Consulting is able to effectively re-establish clear management priorities and sustainable business objectives; build staff commitment, and improve performance through training. 2. Analytical Skills: This is particularly relevant when developing strategies and tactics to deliver services, and in organizational reviews involving goals and objective setting along with simplified strategic planning processes.
  7. 7. 3. Up-To-Date Technology For Data Analysis: Through the experience of conducting many surveys, we are able to undertake consumer research cost effectively, estimate impacts of tourism using Geographic Information Systems or determine the feasibility of tourism developments through financial modeling. 4. Research And Case Building Skills: we can identify facts and arguments and assemble information to support your case and increase the prospects that your plans and development proposals will be successful. 5. A Thorough Understanding And Insight Into The Working Of Local Authorities: We can assist if you plan joint working or collaborative projects. 6. Festivals and Events Planning: including training and management of volunteers and the creation of sponsorship proposals. 7. Media and report writing skills are another strength. These range from writing effective press releases that generate low-cost promotion for your business to preparing a detailed case for funding support for your project. 8. Technological Skills: We are able to adapt technology to tourism needs, advising on the latest developments, and how they might benefit your business. We use Satellite telemetry, Air Photo Analysis, Global Positioning Systems and Geographic Information Systems to analyze and map projects and state of the are park planning systems such as Visitor Activity Management Programming (VAMP) and Recreational Opportunity Spectrum (ROS) to create solutions which avoid incompatible user conflicts and multi year operations plans. 9. Managerial And Training Skills: providing coaching for managers and supervisors at all levels is also a forte.
