Community Tourism Assessment

Not all communities can sustain a profitable visitor economy. It  doesn't happen automatically. Communities that are vigilant and realistic about their visitor attractions, are attuned to the needs of visitors and respond quickly to technology and marketing trends are more likely to generate the increased income, jobs and benefits that come with a healthy visitor economy.

A TDM Tourism Assessment is very affordable and fast. It is loaded with helpful advice and easy to follow recommendations. It is specially designed to meet the needs of volunteer committees and small tourism organizations. Among the issues typically addressed in the review are:

  • Accessibility
  • Amenities and facilities
  • Attractions
  • Positioning
  • Events
  • Gateways
  • Information systems
  • Infrastructure
  • Marketing
  • Service standards
  • Signage
  • Social Media
  • Streetscapes
  • Trip planning resources
  • Visitor information
  • Visitor services
  • Wayfinding
  • Web marketing

 

Examples: Here are some examples of our tourism masterplan and visitor assessments.

 

Why it Makes a Difference?

It’s amazing how many places spend money trying to attract visitors, while at the same time they are leaking dollars out the “back door” with outdated approaches to tourism. There are probably thirty or forty low cost (and no cost) actions most small cities can immediately take to make them more successful destinations.
