Translated title of the contribution: Tourism Marketing in Transition: Challenges for Family Businesses

    Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookOther chapter contribution


    Questions like, ‘In the future, will it be the guest playing the role of the marketing manager? How to generate new customers? Is there still a classic marketing mix?’ are shaping the current discussions in marketing. It seems that traditional tourism marketing, being supplier based, product centered and transaction oriented, will have to give way to a new marketing approach, in order to be able to survive in a cut-throat competition.

    Challenges for small and medium-sized tourism enterprises, and especially for family-run firms within the Alps, will be to implement this upcoming paradigm shift into their company policy strategically and operationally.
