This catalogue was designed to both record small area data collections and to identify strategies for assisting local and regional tourism organisations to implement data collection initiatives. The research identified the need for a guide to managing small area data collections and has produced such a guide. The research also suggested mechanisms for improving Australia’s small area tourism data through better use of existing data sources and the harnessing of existing structures to promote national standards and build capacity.

Substitution between Tourism Destinations: An Application of Discrete Choice Modelling – Short-break Choices of Sydney (Stage 1) & Melbourne (Stage 2) Residents

Categories: Case Study, Management, Monitoring & Evaluation, Visitors
Comments Off on Substitution between Tourism Destinations: An Application of Discrete Choice Modelling – Short-break Choices of Sydney (Stage 1) & Melbourne (Stage 2) Residents

In this study, discrete choice modelling is applied to destination choices. A nested logit model is estimated and the results show the relative importance of various destination and trip attributes and of a number of respondent characteristics. The model results are used to simulate the effects on destinations’ market shares due to changes in attributes and tourists’ characteristics.

This manual was devised to help overcome the professional isolation often experienced by staff working in Australian VICs. It is specifically designed to facilitate the sharing of ‘best practice’ approaches to information dissemination, customer service, staff training, sign and exhibit design and evaluation. Material is based on research in the areas of visitor studies; interviews with thirteen VIC managers; and surveys conducted with approximately 407 visitors at 18 VICs in Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia and the Northern Territory. It includes photographs, discussion questions and checklists to enable you to evaluate and improve your services and facilities. The manual concludes with four case studies designed to describe examples of ‘best practice’ in more detail.
