Destination management is the coordinated management of all elements that make up a destination, including the attractions, amenities, access, marketing and pricing. Solimar assists destinations take a strategic approach to linking these sometimes very separate entities for the better management of a destination.
Destination Marketing and Management Organizations (DMMO) are often the best advocates for the collaborative management of tourism in a place.
Our tourism projects realize results across various industries and development fields. The impacts of a thriving tourism industry are seen across agriculture, construction, transportation and export sectors.
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing the environment today. As a climate-sensitive industry, tourism will continue to be significantly affected by climate change.
Rural areas are becoming increasingly popular destinations for travel, especially cultural landscapes that allow a glimpse into how rural people live and work.
In many places, crafts such as textiles and art contribute greatly to the culture of a destination and the travel experience. Crafts can be an important contributor to a country’s economy, employing artisans that are preserving cultural heritage, while generating an important source of income through the informal sector.
After a destination has successfully attracted a visitor, the next opportunity to serve the market is through a Destination Visitor and Information Center, sometimes referred to as a “welcome center”. Solimar has developed a number of these centers in popular tourism destinations that provide a one-stop, physical location from which travelers can connect to local businesses and services.
