Destination Development


Market research and strategic analysis, e-Marketing of Destinations, setting up efficient DMOs / CVBs, Public Private Partnerships (PPPs), Quality issues in destination development etc. are some of the issues for successfully developing and managing a destination. Our experience in these matters and international network of experts allows us to tackle even the most complicated projects.

For Athens and Thessaloniki GBR Consulting is conducting on an annual basis Visitor Satisfaction Surveys among hotel guests.

Furthermore, we organised an International Workshop on Destination Management, as part of the parallel events of Philoxenia 2006, the International Travel and Tourism exhibition based in Thessaloniki, Greece. For more information on this event, please click here.
