Know the value of your Visitor Information Center. The VIC-kit evaluates the contribution your VIC makes to tourism in your region by identifying VICs role in changing visitor behavior by increasing length of stay and number of activities undertaken by tourists. The VIC-kit also enables VICs to monitor their service quality, tourism knowledge and ability of staff to up-sell tourism products. A valuable tool for all VICs.

As part of the project ‘Improving the yield of tourism in regional areas: the role of visitor information centers’, this report developed a tool for assessing the management of knowledge within a Visitor Information Center. This report deals with two types of knowledge: Strategic Knowledge Management and Knowledge Management. Strategic knowledge management (SKM) represents the attempt by organisations to improve their overall capacity for knowledge. Knowledge Management (KM) is a multidisciplinary approach to achieving organisational objectives by making the best use of knowledge.
