  • Psychological recovery effects of 3D virtual tourism with real scenes -- a
           comparative study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objective This study explores the psychological recovery effects of virtual tourism on individuals. Methods Relevant research usually tends to examine the psychological recovery effects through traditional media entailing a lesser immersive experience. Few studies focus on the psychological recovery effects of virtual tourism, and even fewer on exploring response differences depending on different landscape types. Based on a series of empirical tests and electroencephalogram (EEG) data, this study investigates the impacts of a more immersive 3D virtual tourism with real scenes on people’s relaxation (Pm), concentration (Pa), and positive and negative emotions (PA and NA). Additionally, it clarifies the differences in the psychological recovery effects of four landscape types on the abovementioned attributes. Conclusions The psychological recovery effects did vary according to the type of tourist attractions. There were a few differences based on gender. For instance, men’s relaxation level changed significantly after touring lake-oriented virtual tourist attraction. Individual differences in recovery were also observed. Implications These findings contribute to our knowledge about environmental restoration and its role in alleviating people’s anxiety, especially during situations like the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • How do sensory features of places impact on spatial exploration of people
           with autism' A user study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Autism is characterized by peculiar sensory processing. The sensory features of a place may have a crucial impact on the decision a person with autism makes when choosing what to visit in a tourist experience. We present a map-based mobile app, conceived for people with mid to high-functioning autism, which exploits sensory features of places to filter the information displayed and suggest locations that may be suitable for their idiosyncratic needs. The mobile app also exploits the crowdmapping paradigm in order to gather these features from the community of users, since they are not publicly available. We describe the results of a composite user evaluation of the app, made up of a task experiment, a field study, and an online questionnaire, which aims to understand (i) whether the explicit presentation of sensory information impacts the decision of going to a specific place, (ii) if the crowdmapping functionality is used and how and (iii) how people with autism navigate the mobile app. The results confirm the importance of the sensory features for people with autism in the decision to go to a specific place. Moreover, they show that crowdmapping may be a good solution to collect such features, but should be integrated with other methods. Finally, the results show that the preferred modality of exploring information about places is by using the map.

  • Interactive webcam travel: supporting wildlife tourism and conservation
           during COVID-19 lockdowns

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Using the conceptual frameworks and theories of virtual tourism, telepresence and para-social interactions, this exploratory study investigates an innovative campaign employed by a nature-based wildlife tourism operator as a response to the COVID-19 lockdowns and travel restrictions of 2020/21. Insights are provided into a unique model of webcam livestreaming that is scheduled, hosted and interactive. Over 73,000 social media comments and 590 survey responses from webcam viewers were analysed and indicate that watching the livestream had positive impacts for tourism recovery and conservation action. Research findings suggest that interactive webcam travel can affect travel behaviour and conservation awareness and action in part through building and engaging online communities and supporting a sense of connection with nature. This study contributes new knowledge to the emerging research on webcam livestreaming in tourism. As a subset of virtual tourism, interactive webcam travel emerges as an alternative to more costly forms of virtual reality for industry practitioners and stakeholders to engage new and old audiences, especially in the context of tourism recovery initiatives after disasters and crises that prevent or limit physical visitation.

  • Enhancing sustainable development through tourism digitalisation: a
           systematic literature review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The world’s economic structure is increasingly moving towards a digital framework, boosted by the fourth industrial revolution. As a versatile sector, tourism is also embedded within this digital transformation process, albeit at a slower pace due to the uncountable challenges and uncertainties surrounding it. Nevertheless, the most recent implications of the pandemic crisis warned both managers and politicians of the urgent need for new development paths aligned with sustainability, particularly with the United Nations’ sustainable development goals. Furthermore, direct issues related to tourism activity, such as overtourism, pollution, and economic dependency, call for alternative and balanced approaches. Smart and digital solutions might play a key role in this process, but little is known concerning their potential. Aiming to extend knowledge concerning these potentials, a systematic literature review was conducted to examine the state-of-the-art about the implications of digital transformation in tourism as a catalyst for sustainable development, identifying gaps and providing directions for future research. From the analysis of 38 manuscripts, visitor experience, destination management, business solutions, and smart sustainable destinations emerged as the most common topics. However, inconsistencies were identified concerning the management narratives and the actual implementation of smart approaches. Additionally, the novelty of the concepts gravitating around smart tourism promotes some theoretical inconsistencies, which also need to be remedied.

  • Developing a model for smart tourism destinations: an interpretive
           structural modelling approach

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The smart tourism concept emerged from smart city development and is a particular application area within smart city initiatives. Smart tourism is broadly applied as a strategic tool to enhance the competitiveness of tourism destinations. This study creates a framework to identify, explore, and rate the effective factors of developing smart tourism destinations. The effective factors were identified through a review of the research literature and by surveying experts. The identified factors were rated using an interpretative-structural modelling approach. A Cross-impact matrix multiplication applied to classification (MICMAC) analysis was used to determine the power and dependence of these factors. The findings show 20 indexes at ten levels. Financial resources, government support, and smart tourism policies were identified as the most important factors in modelling smart tourism development. By identifying effective factors for developing smart tourism destinations, the policymakers can encourage innovation of smart destinations, support smart tourism and highlight the multi-faceted contribution of smart destinations to sustainable development.

  • Systematic investigation of keywords selection and processing strategy on
           search engine forecasting: a case of tourist volume in Beijing

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The timeliness, precision, and low cost of search data have great potential for projecting tourist volume. Obtaining valuable information for decision-making, particularly for predicting, is hampered by the vast amount of search data. A systematic investigation of keyword selection and processing has been conducted. Using Beijing tourist volume as an example, 11 different feature extraction algorithms were selected and combined with long short-term memory (LSTM), random forest (RF) and fuzzy time series (FTS) for forecasting tourist volume. A total of 1612 keywords were retrieved from Baidu Index demand mapping using the direct word extraction method, range word extraction method and empirical selection method. The remaining 813 keywords were subjected to feature extraction. Based on the forecasting results of medium and short-term (1-day, 7-days and 10-days), the forecasting results of Kernel principal component analysis (KPCA) and locally linear embedding (LLE) are relatively stable when the dimensionality is reduced to 5 dimensions. The forecasting results of t-stochastic neighbor embedding (t-SNE), isometric mapping (IsoMap) and locally linear embedding (LLE), locality preserving projections (LPP), independent component correlation (ICA) are relatively stable when the dimensionality is reduced to 10 dimensions. Accurately forecasting many factors (transportation, attraction, food, lodging, travel, tips, tickets, and weather) provides a solid foundation for tourism demand optimization and scientific management and a resource for tourists' holistic vacation planning.

  • Assessing pre-travel online destination experience values of destination
           websites: scale development and validation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Destination websites, provided by destination marketing/management organisations (DMOs), are central environmental drivers of tourist experiences in the pre-travel phase. DMOs increasingly apply experiential marketing on their websites to support positive online destination experiences (ODEs) and attract tourists. Despite the ongoing scientific debate on technology-driven tourist experiences, research into pre-travel ODEs is still nascent and theoretical knowledge on the nature of ODEs is limited. Particularly, an appropriate measurement tool to evaluate the pre-travel experience value of destination websites is missing. In this paper, we propose a reliable, valid, and parsimonious measure for assessing pre-travel ODEs on destination websites, building on two prior studies. In a quasi field experiment, German millennials (n = 1820) evaluated the ODEs of different real destination websites using an online questionnaire. The ODE scale was developed using principal component analysis based on half of the cases; the other half was used to validate the scale via confirmatory composite analysis. In result, the overall ODE is reflected by two interrelated dimensions: hedonic and utilitarian experiences. Websites with a high level of experiential design yield significantly higher ODE values, supporting the construct validity. Results contribute to the theoretical understanding of the technology-driven tourist experience in the anticipatory phase. Moreover, the developed scale yields a methodological knowledge gain and will help destination managers to evaluate, purposefully review and improve their website designs and contents.

  • Live-streaming community interaction effects on travel intention: the
           mediation role of sense of community and swift-guanxi

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The purpose of this paper is to explore whether the quality of interaction in the live streaming tourism community (interaction quality, swift-guanxi, sense of community) has a positive impact on travel intention. This paper collected 308 questionnaires and used structural equation models (SEMs) to test the relevant hypotheses. The main contributions of this article to the field of live streaming tourism are as follows: community interaction quality, swift-guanxi and the sense of community all significantly positively affect travel intention. Swift-guanxi will actively enhance members’ sense of community and thus promote their travel intention. This article is one of the first articles to explore the relationship between live streaming tourism, community interaction and travel intention. It enriches the theory of tourism management in the construction of online tourism communities and provides positive and valuable guidance for practical management activities.

  • Scoping out urban areas of tourist interest though geolocated social media
           data: Bucharest as a case study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Social media data has frequently sourced research on topics such as traveller planning or the factors that influence travel decisions. The literature on the location of tourist activities, however, is scarce. The studies in this line that do exist focus mainly on identifying points of interest and rarely on the urban areas that attract tourists. Specifically, as acknowledged in the literature, tourist attractions produce major imbalances with respect to adjacent urban areas. The present study aims to fill this research gap by addressing a twofold objective. The first was to design a methodology allowing to identify the preferred tourist areas based on concentrations of places and activities. The tourist area was delimited using Instasights heatmaps information and the areas of interest were identified by linking data from the location-based social network Foursquare to TripAdvisor’s database. The second objective was to delimit areas of interest based on users’ existing urban dynamics. The method provides a thorough understanding of functional diversity and the location of a city’s different functions. In this way, it contributes to a better understanding of the spatial distribution imbalances of tourist activities. Tourist areas of interest were revealed via the identification of users’ preferences and experiences. A novel methodology was thus created that can be used in the design of future tourism strategies or, indeed, in urban planning. The city of Bucharest, Romania, was taken as a case study to develop this exploratory research.

  • A digital humanism view on e-tourism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Informatics, its artefacts and methods, change our society and world, from the individual personal level up to the current geo-political powerplay. Today, Information Technology (IT) serves as the operating system of our society. From an ontological point of view Informatics influences also how we perceive the world and how we think about it. This change has happened during the short span of last half century. At the same time, despite of this enormous success, this development has serious shortcomings. I discuss some of them, and describe a positive “answer”: Digital Humanism. I will use this human centered approach to IT to critically review developments in e-tourism; and, one of the main lessons is: do not get lost in small things, have a look at the big picture, also aim for a better future and society. Two disclaimers: (a) This contribution is an opinion piece, not a scientific paper in the strict sense. I hope it provokes a lively, and probably also controversial discussion; and, (b) Some arguments regarding Digital Humanism are already partly expressed in other publications such as (Werthner, Electron Mark 32:145–151, 2022a) and (Werthner et al. Hoepken (eds) Handbook of e-tourism, Springer, Berlin, 2022b).

  • The pandemic of loneliness: designing smart tourism for combating
           loneliness

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Many technologically driven societies currently experience a “pandemic of loneliness“. The purpose of this viewpoint paper is to conceptualize loneliness as a persistent and widespread issue among consumers that has been amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic and increasingly spills over into the travel and tourism domain. This issue creates many challenges for smart tourism design as it implies changed consumer perspectives on smart tourism and needs for smart tourist experiences. This viewpoint paper is based on a review of relevant academic literature and online resources regarding the issue of loneliness, before and during the COVID-19 pandemic, and potential solutions in smart tourism settings. Loneliness has been completely overlooked by the smart tourism research agenda despite its tremendous implications for engagement, value co-creation, and the need for experience enhancement. This viewpoint paper proposes a framework for designing a loneliness-sensitive smart tourism ecosystem (LoSSTE). The purpose of this paper is to start a debate on how to mobilize smart tourism research for combating loneliness in the post-pandemic era and to outline areas for further research.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study examines the predicting effect of celebrity involvement on destination authenticity (object-based authenticity and existential authenticity) and hence travel intention in the context of TikTok tourism promotional videos. Data collected from 225 survey respondents indicated that celebrity involvement increases perceived destination authenticities (object-based and existential authenticity) and hence travel intention after watching TikTok celebrity videos. Furthermore, destination authenticities mediate the positive relationship between celebrity involvement and travel intention. The findings contribute to knowledge about social media marketing in tourism literature by blending authenticity theory and celebrity involvement in the context of TikTok celebrity promotions. Meaningful implications are provided for destination marketers.

      Abstract: Abstract We present a data-driven solution to manage visitors’ access at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy. The goal is to avoid the long lines outside the Museum, improving not only visitors’ experience, but also decency and security in the urban area. The solution implements a queue management system based on two data analytics models, one predictive and one prescriptive, which determine the entry time of each visitor. The system, which requires a minimal hardware and software infrastructure, was on the field from October 2018 to January 2020 during the most crowded visiting days, namely the free access days. First we report on the whole design and implementation process, then we show the solutions effectiveness and discuss the lesson learned.

  • Immersive technologies for tourism: a systematic review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This review provides a comprehensive view of immersive technology in tourism by critically analysing prior scholarly work. More specifically, it identifies the recent use of immersive technology in this field and the potential challenges it poses. This systematic review follows PRISMA guidelines and involves four key steps—identifying research questions, defining keywords, selecting studies based on inclusion and exclusion criteria, and synthesising results. It focuses on immersive technology in tourism-related peer-reviewed journal articles published from 2012 to 2020. The papers were selected from ten prominent journal databases. Some databases used combinations of search queries but with inclusion and exclusion criteria. This systematic review builds on the existing reviews by adding knowledge regarding state-of-the-art immersive technology usage in tourism and its integration with other technology. This review additionally identifies the potential challenges of implementing immersive technology in tourism. Finally, it presents a set of directions for future research in this space. In practice, the findings from this review can make both software developers and tourism providers aware of the potential of immersive technology in tourism. Software developers might consider appropriate designs that suit such usage, and tourism providers might consider using immersive technology to promote tourism destinations and provide a support system to maximise the benefits of immersive technology.

  • Mapping tourism and hospitality research on information and communication
           technology: a bibliometric and scientific approach

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Technology and information and communication technology (ICT) have been gaining importance in tourism and hospitality with a booming research interest during the last years and specifically recently due to the disruptions of the COVID-19 crisis. Hence it is useful to structure the existing knowledge in this field to better guide directions for future research. To that end, this study synthesizes the academic literature about ‘technology and ICT’ in tourism and hospitality by carrying out a bibliometric analysis. The study identified 2424 documents, including the words ‘technolog*’ and/or ‘ICT’ combined with ‘touris*’, ‘hospitality’, ‘hotel’, and/or ‘travel’ that were published in the period 1988–2021 and collected from tourism and hospitality journals indexed in the Web of Science (WOS) and SCOPUS databases. The analysis was carried out by using SciMAT software, which offers different bibliometric tools and methods in order to achieve consistent results through a keyword co-occurrence analysis and an evolution map. The findings revealed the major research themes, including technology acceptance model, electronic word-of-mouth, user-generated content, self-services technologies, robotics, smart tourism, virtual reality, and trust in technology. The study concludes by identifying and discussing a future research agenda.

  • Enhancing social media branded content effectiveness: strategies via
           telepresence and social presence

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The commodification of mobile devices and penetration of high-speed Internet continue to make social media an ideal platform for businesses to reach consumers. Despite ample studies have been conducted to understand the factors that affect social media marketing effectiveness, the specific nature of tourism and hospitality products (i.e., highly experiential) has rarely been considered. Based on computer-mediated communication (CMC) theories and relevant work in the communication literature, this study investigates what affect the effectiveness of hotel social media branded contents. Self-reported data were collected from 318 respondents and were tested using confirmatory factor analysis and structural equation modeling. The findings demonstrate the positive impact of telepresence and social presence on customer purchase intention through trust and perceived usefulness. This work integrates CMC theories and technology acceptance model to provide a comprehensive explanation of social media branded content effectiveness. Practical implications are provided for hoteliers to design more effective social media branded contents.
