Section One: Understanding Marketing in Leisure and Tourism

Chapters 1 through 5 provide a foundation for understanding leisure and tourism marketing.

They include critical concepts about the experiences leisure and tourism organizations provide and how they provide them.

Effective marketing is built from an organization’s development of high-quality leisure and tourism experiences.

In this effort, organizations must utilize information to create the most effective system.

In addition to chapters about leisure and tourism experiences, quality, and research, this section introduces the concepts of marketing and the author’s thoughts regarding a system for successful integration in any leisure and tourism organization.

Section Two: Developing a Leisure and Tourism Marketing Strategy

The concepts in Chapters 6 through 8 are vital to successful marketing.

They introduce the process for successful integration of marketing concepts by providing an applied system designed to uncover critical information for effective decision making.

These chapters highlight concepts related to developing a marketing strategy for supporting an organization’s mission and goals.

They also provide a process for identifying beneficial information to create a solid strategy, because “anyone can spend a marketing budget but not everyone will be successful.”

Section Three: Achieving Leisure and Tourism Organizational Objectives Through Successful Promotional and Operational Communication Plans

Chapters 9 through 14 address critical issues regarding leisure and tourism organizations’ ability to successfully achieve marketing objectives.

These chapters are placed within the tactical section of the book to address issues related to promotional and communication mix elements.

Once an organization determines its strategy, an effective tactical plan to reach the marketing objectives must be determined.

In these chapters, readers are introduced to a process for identifying all the potential tools available for reaching consumers with meaningful messages in effective ways.
