Tourism Experiences Experts At 2016 Summit

November 9, 2016

Creating memorable on-island experiences is a key focus of the Bermuda Tourism Authority’s [BTA] annual Tourism Summit on November 16th.

Doug Lansky, a tourism strategy advisor, will provide insights into “experience design.”

He’ll show how curating a bookended visitor experience that starts before the trip and lasts until visitors return home can create an emotional connection that will lift satisfaction, increase visitor spending and improve the chances of a return visit.

After soeaking last year with a compelling analysis of the global economy and its impact on the travel industry, Adam Sacks, founder of Tourism Economics, will hone in on industry money matters with new projections on what Bermuda can expect from tourism over the next few years.
