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 9781856178204 offering extra case studies, discussion questions and further reading.
