Today, destination branding is one of the hottest topics amongst place marketing professionals and politicians. Many destinations – from individual cities to entire countries – are adopting branding strategies similar to those of leading household brand names in an effort to differentiate themselves and to emotionally connect with potential tourists.

By focusing on a range of global case studies, Destination Branding: Creating the unique destination proposition, revised second edition, demonstrates how destinations – big and small – can successfully harness the power of branding.

Now with a companion website at www.elsevierdirect.com/ 9781856178204 offering extra case studies, discussion questions and further reading.

This revised edition provides:

  • Case studies authored by brand consultants, destination marketers and academics, including Philip Kotler and Wally Olins and other destination branding experts.
  • Global coverage with case studies and examples from the UK, Eastern Europe, the USA, New Zealand, Australia and Asia.
  • Consideration of the web as a channel of place branding/promotion and of the roles of special events and media and public relations in leveraging promotional activities.
