The SCOTS (Specialist Counsellor on Travel to Scotland) programme is a specially designed destination training programme for travel agents who sell Scotland to their clients.  It was launched by VisitScotland in 1986 and was originally open to agents in the US and Canada.  In the summer of 2007, the programme was adapted to make it global and there are now qualified agents in China, India, Korea and the Middle East.  In addition to adapting the training programme to make it more global, both a Chinese language and a Japanese language version of the programme have been launched.

 

The tourism-destination App is called “Bestiarium Skaraborg” (based on gaming, augmented reality)

They are in Skaraborg (University of Skövde) developing a mobile phone App similar to the coming reality "Pokemon go" that will be used for the tourism destination Skaraborg. They will in the narration use fairy tale creatures to attract young people.

 

A tradition of transnational cooperation for tourism promotion among the Regions Limburg (NL), Eifel and Aachen Region (GE), Provinces of Liege and Limburg and the German Speaking Community in Belgium (BE) has resulted into joint marketing efforts, including facebook page and trilingual joint promotional website, and is evolving now to the creation of a transnational tourism board.

 

 

VisitCornwall is finalising a programme of overseas marketing for the Region of Cornwall to The Netherlands, Belgium, Scandinavia, Ireland and German Speaking markets plus USA, Australia and New Zealand.

Blue growth 2014-2020: Innovative investments and new technologies for "blue ways" port destinations development

Period and Funding: Odyssea Blue Growth Strategy considers that innovation and new technologies are fundamental to promote the virtuous circle of sustainable development for Coastline Tourism and Yachting in Europe. The application of the ICT to various spaces of high and low density, connecting the territories of the maritime and river littoral to the back country, creates synergies, inducing an added-value for the project.

 

Importance of ICT and Innovation in Regional Tourism strategy
We strongly believe that the future of our destination will be shaped through ICT information exchange. Impacts of online information (social) portals like tripadvisor and booking.com are huge and will become bigger. If you do not innovate, you run the risk of becoming obsolete.

Cooperation Tourism Department – Other Regional Departments. We cooperate in this project with our neighboring Regions in Belgium, being Belgian Limburg (Flemish) and Liège (Walloon).
