    • Authors: Georgios KONTOGEORGIS, Christos LIVAS, Nansy KARALI
      Pages: 1525 - 1533

Consequently, the present study aims at conducting a strategic analysis of Corfu, an important tourist destination located in the Ionian Sea, with the purpose of suggesting targeted interventions regarding the island’s tourism product and providing directions for sustainable tourism development. Secondary data analysis and results from a survey of 334 tourists indicated several strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats concerning Corfu’s tourism sector. This information reveals a number of ways to improve Corfu’s overall tourism product and develop a sustainable strategy for the Corfiot tourism industry. In view of rising environmental and socioeconomic challenges, a comprehensive tourism strategy ought to simultaneously enhance Corfu’s competitive position, improve residents’ welfare and safeguard the island’s scarce natural resources.

  • The Untapped Potential of Ethno-Tourism in Ulytau Region

    • Authors: Rabiga MUKATOVA, Kamshat MUSSINA, Maribel RODRÍGUEZ
      Pages: 1534 - 1550
      Abstract: Kazakhstan is a unique country, with beautiful nature, original culture, and traditions. Ulytau region is the historical and geographical center of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the cradle of the Kazakh people. It is one of the epicenters of steppe civilization and nomadic culture. Ulytau is a unique region with over 700 registered monuments of history and culture and has a great potential to develop ethno-tourism. According to conducted survey over a 10-month period from January to October 2021, it was revealed that a huge part of tourists doesn’t know about this destination and features of this region and would like to visit this region with ethno-cultural purposes. This article shows the results of the study, the main constraining factors, and mechanisms for the implementation of ethno-tourism. These findings contribute to a better understanding of the involvement of tourists in visiting a tourist destination for the purpose of ethno-tourism, and a number of recommendations are proposed for key stakeholders.

  • Observing the Dunning - Kruger Effect in the Results of Tourism Studies

    • Authors: Tibor GONDA
      Pages: 1551 - 1556
      Abstract: When conducting questionnaire studies, we need to ensure that realistic results are drawn from responses in order for valid conclusions to be possible. However, we know that some people overestimate their own knowledge and competence. Scholars have identified this phenomenon as the Dunning-Kruger effect. In the course of the background analysis of the results of a 2018 study of tourism consumption habits, it was revealed that there was significant correlation between educational levels and the results of the study. However, in most cases, this relationship did not show the expected direction. The present study focuses on the results obtained for questions related to environmentally conscious and responsible consumer behavior. Several studies have verified the relationship between education and realistic self-esteem. Those with highest levels of education are most likely to have realistic views of the self and to slightly underestimate their actual knowledge and skills. In contrast, lower-skilled individuals are characterized by significantly overestimating their abilities. This is attested by the results of the current research, results that can be seen as related to the Dunning-Kruger effect.

  • Strengthening Natural Tourism Empowerment Construction through Brand
           Strategy - Based Online Marketplace

    • Authors: Anak Agung Sagung Alit WIDYASTUTY, Muslichah Erma WIDIANA
      Pages: 1557 - 1564
      Abstract: This study aimed to focus on strengthening the construction of natural tourism empowerment through a brand strategy-based online marketplace. The analytical tool in this study was A’WOT analysis, which is a combination of AHP analysis and SWOT analysis. Data collection methods were through observation, documentation, and interviews with stakeholders, including representatives of the Bangkalan Regency Tourism and Culture Office, Situbondo Regency Tourism and Culture Office, and two tourism industry observers. The results showed that if all programs are implemented and executed by referring to the legal basis set by the government, then the strengthening of natural tourism empowerment construction through a brand strategy-based online marketplace can be achieved and can improve the economic development in a community, especially in Bangkalan Regency. The strengthening of its construction is by managing the website through the online promotion of tourism products, improving facilities and infrastructure to support tourism activities, optimizing additional service facilities at tourist destinations, and optimizing the management of tourism objects.

  • Management of Recreational Areas. The Impact of Management of the
           Development of Shchuchinsko-Borovsky Resort Area on the Improvement of the
           Level of Financial and Economic Sustainability in the Region

    • Authors: Kazbek Kuandykovich BOKENCHIN, Marat ALTAY, Aigul SHAIMERDENOVA, Laura Kurymbaevna BOKENCHINA, Bibigul DABYLOVA
      Pages: 1565 - 1573
      Abstract: The formation and development of the recreation system generate a range of problems associated with the need to manage the development of recreational areas, which demonstrate the properties of complex environmental and economic systems. For this reason, it is critically important to improve the environmental and economic efficiency of recreational areas through the formation of an effective management system, especially in the aspect of the balanced spatial development of regions. The paper presents an analysis of various methodological approaches to the management of recreational areas, defines the stages of implementation of recreational area management, and offers a recommended recreational area zoning scheme and the corresponding recreational area management structure based on the example of the Shchuchinsko-Borovsky resort area. The results of the study suggest that recreational area management should be considered as an activity of public authorities to create conditions for the rational and effective use of the recreational potential of the region, and the adoption of rational and balanced managerial decisions can only be ensured by the establishment of a cadastre of recreational resources.

  • Corporate Social Responsibility, Knowledge of COVID-19, and Risk
           Perception in International Tourism Enterprises

    • Authors: Mohammad KHASAWNEH, Bashar M. AL NAJDAWI, Hakam S. SHATNAWI, Samer Fandi ABABNEH
      Pages: 1574 - 1583
      Abstract: The goal of this research was to determine if corporate social responsibility, risk perceptions, and understanding of COVID-19 of international tourism enterprises had an impact on Jordanian travelers’ decisions about international tourist products. Questionnaire (self-reporting) was created and distributed to 321 participants, with 311 valid replies being evaluated for statistical analysis. The results of the multiple linear regression show that risk perception, COVID-19 knowledge perception, and international tourism enterprises' corporate social responsibility are major determinants of attitude toward and behavioral intention. Nevertheless, the limited sample size raises the question of generalizability, which should be examined in more depth in future research. The influence of international tourism businesses on travelers’ decision-making by the majority of respondents suggests that such international tourist businesses have a lot of room to grow in the future. The difficulty is to ensure that it continues to match tourism's expectations, resulting in an increase in international tourist business visitors. This research is advanced since it contains information on worldwide tourism businesses, particularly in Jordan. The tourism industry will benefit from the main aspects identified.

           Economic Cooperation and Development. New Experiences and Perspectives
           upon Tourism

    • Authors: Nurlan DULATBEKOV
      Pages: 1584 - 1594
      Abstract: In the context of developing our partnership with the European Union, it is also important to study the prospects for cooperation with individual European countries. Hungary is of great interest in this regard, as a country that has deep historical roots with our people, a country that has passed the path of political and economic reforms and has recently become a member of the EU and NATO. Prospects for the development of cultural and humanitarian relations are becoming wider every year. This fact is facilitated by the historical proximity of the two peoples, and their desire for the revival of national culture and traditions. It is noteworthy that in addition to economic, scientific and cultural cooperation, a productive exchange of experience in the field of public administration, as well as the development of tourism, has been established between Kazakhstan and Hungary.

           the State for the Tourism Development

    • Authors: Dinara JAKUPOVA, Gaukhar KOSHEBAYEVA, Nazym ALPYSBAYEVA, Valeriy BIRYUKOV
      Pages: 1603 - 1615
      Abstract: The purpose of the study is to analyze the formation of youth policy in the Republic of Kazakhstan and identify factors influencing its development, including the tourism industry. Youth is one of the socially active segments of the population with important potential weight in the future, which is an independent direction of the state, based on legal, ideological and institutional mechanisms. The desire of the majority of young people to independently resolve their issues and build a life perspective was reflected in her increased craving for education, mastering prestigious professions. The value of education, which has largely lost its significance for young people, has taken its place among the priority life values of young people.  The findings of our analysis conducted in this research paper highlighted that also the tourism industry, as part of the economic system, is certainly no exception and is not immune to these needs; the impact of policies for the development of youth should generate a growing competition both for the talented managers and teachers, students, young people which could be involved in the development of the tourism industry.

           Unemployment Indicators in Turkey

    • Authors: Bahman HUSEYNLI
      Pages: 1629 - 1636
      Abstract: In this study on Turkey, which is one of the most developed countries in the tourism sector, the relationship between economic growth and tourism revenues in Turkey has been analysed over a 16-year period starting from 2005. It has been tried to reveal how the tourism sector, which has an important dimension in Turkey, also affects the unemployment levels with the help of analysis. In the study conducted by multiple regression, a series of assumption tests were applied before the regression analysis. After applying tests such as VIF, Breusch-Godfrey Serial Correlation LM and obtaining valid values, the transition to the multiple regression model was made.

  • Interpersonal Communication Between Sign Language Interpreters as Tour
           Guides and Deaf Tourists in Indonesia

    • Authors: Farid Hamid UMARELLA, Endri LISTIANI, Ahmad MULYANA, Endri ENDRI
      Pages: 1637 - 1645
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine the process and communication barriers between tour guides and deaf tourists and the motives behind them becoming special guides for deaf tourists. This research used the theory of communication patterns, interpersonal communication, communication for deaf people, and tour guide. The method used in this research was the constructivism paradigm with a qualitative research approach. This research used the case study research method. The research subjects were ten sign language interpreters as tour guides domiciled in Jakarta. The results showed that the communication pattern between "heard" or "deaf" tour guides with "deaf" tourists needed to start with vocabulary adjustments - decoding and encoding - because the sign language that developed in each tourist area of origin was different. After adjusting the vocabulary, the interpersonal communication pattern could be circular or two-way. The motives to become a tour guide as deaf tourists were divided into three: the motive of knowledge, the motive of the social network, and sign language attraction. Meanwhile, communication barriers during the tour guiding process were differences in vocabulary, lack of international signaling skills, and English ability.

  • Academic Tourism as an Emerging Tourism Industry in Kazakhstan

    • Authors: Bakhyt ALTYNBASSOV, Aigerim BAYANBAYEVA, Baurzhan ISSABEKOV, Yerbolat BARLYKOV, Bekmukhan AKHMETOV, Bakhytbek ZHANKUBAYEV, Indira SHOKHANOVA
      Pages: 1646 - 1657
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the development of academic tourism in Kazakhstan in recent years. Analytical papers and expert reports from the UN World Tourism Organization and a review of studies over the past two decades have been useful in determining the meaning of academic tourism and academic mobility. In addition, international and national tourism policy and regulatory acts were analyzed, reflecting the prospects of the tourism industry. Using a thematic analysis method, this study analyzed the development of academic tourism in Kazakhstan as an emerging tourism sector over the past few years. The new tax preferences, the approval of a special economic zone in priority areas provided by the Government were found as the greatest opportunity in facilitating academic tourism in the southern region of Kazakhstan. In this regard, the establishment of international university campuses can play a significant role. It is expected that the implementation of this idea will help to attract thousands of students and academics from neighboring countries and can become a real impetus for the development of tourism. Furthermore, it can positively influence other tourism sectors such as MICE tourism, eco-tourism.

           Tourism Industry

    • Authors: Olusoji Damaro ARUBAYI, Dafe Marcus EJETA
      Pages: 1672 - 1680
      Abstract: This study examined coping competence, social supports and job performance in the tourism industry in Nigeria. The survey research design was adopted via questionnaire and was administered to three hundred and five (305) employees of tourism companies. Data obtained were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistical tools. Findings revealed that coping competence and social support significantly and positively affect job performance in the tourism industry. The implication is that employees in the tourism industry have high level of coping competence towards handling stressful situations in the workplace and they receive maximum social supports from superiors and colleagues resulting in enhanced job performance. The study recommends that since coping competence improve job performance, management of the tourism industry should periodically assess employees’ coping competence regularly to ensure that negative coping skills are eliminated from the work environment. More so, management of the tourism industry should incessantly support employees in their day-to-day tasks in order to improve job performance.

      Abstract: As a topic, nonverbal communication (e.g., expressions of emotions) remains inadequately focused on tourism and hospitality research. Its qualitative significance in service encounters is also virtually unexplored. Given the importance of employees' display of affective characteristics as vivid outcomes of nonverbal communication, i.e., responsiveness, friendliness, trustworthiness, competence, and compassion toward customers, the current study aims to explore customers' experiences toward nonverbal communication of employees during service encounters. By using transcendental phenomenology as a methodological framework, the study resorted to in-depth interviews with 13 customers, representing different nationalities, with whom the study found nonverbal communication as expressions of "body signal, mood, icon, marketing aids, mind changer and anything unspoken" that are conceived quickly and make customers feel welcome and comfortable. The study also found realistic experiences that customers could take their meals at home; they visited the restaurant for having different experiences: refreshment and relaxation while dining. In that emotional situation, they expected favourable nonverbal behaviour instead of a worried face, ignorance, mouse on the floor. The discussion of results is carried out concerning the characteristics of nonverbal communication and the theory of emotional contagion.

The COVID-19 pandemic almost nullified the organized and unorganized restaurant business across the country. Dining out is one of the most popular social activities in a metropolitan city like Coimbatore (popularly known as Manchester of South India), the city has branches of popular restaurant chains from across the globe. Measures such as lockdown, social distancing, and dine-in restrictions adopted by the government to slow down the spread of the virus, have imparted huge loss to the FSI that has in turn severely affected the livelihood of millions of restaurant workers in the country with Coimbatore being no exception. In this background, the authors have studied the case of impact of COVID-19 on restaurants with special reference to Coimbatore. Primary data from restaurants were used for this study. The findings based on the data provide a significant contribution to the FSI, and identify the factors that need to be tapped to frame a strategy to increase the sales volume in upcoming pandemic-like situations. Also, the authors have suggested following the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) instructed by the government even after the pandemic.

  • Improving the Innovative Activity of the Region with Impact upon Tourism

      Pages: 1728 - 1739
      Abstract: A necessary condition for the sustainable development of the tourism industry is to attract investment and funding for innovative activities in the field of tourism and the improvement of innovative activities in the region. In the development of the tourism industry, an active state policy and regulatory framework aimed at creating a favorable infrastructure that helps attract investment plays an important role. The international experience also shows that countries actively involved in the development of tourism have a large budget for the implementation of national projects and programs and provide their citizens with high quality tourism services. All this is important for the study, since the development and support of the tourism industry, the development of competition and the attractiveness of investments depend on a large number of factors that reflect the general state of the country's economic policy.

      Pages: 1779 - 1797
      Abstract: This paper aims to map the position of electronic business tourism research and how these topics are related to one another. The bibliometric analysis method with VOSviewer is used to provide our understanding of the structure related to the topic under study, as well as to map and identify certain patterns, including analyzing and visualizing the co-occurrence of keywords, co-citations of cited authors, and co-citations of cited sources. A total of 117 documents on e-business and tourism topics from the Scopus database are reviewed. We find that the trend of research on e-business and tourism simultaneously has not increased significantly since 2003. We also found research topics that have the opportunity to be researched based on emerging keywords. In addition, we found the authors and journals who contributed the most to the topic of e-business and tourism research, and how they were connected. To our knowledge, this study is the first to conduct a bibliometric analysis on the topic of e-business and tourism simultaneously, in which 117 publications were systematically examined using bibliometric analysis with VOSviewer.

  • Distance Elasticity of Tourism Demand

    • Authors: Robert BĘBEN, Zuzanna KRAUS, Izabela PÓŁBRAT
      Pages: 1798 - 1810
      Abstract: Understanding the behaviours of potential customers is crucial for effective management. Distance to destination and travel time are among the most important variables which influence customers' behaviours. The authors focused on the relation between the potential level of tourist demand and the distance to be travelled by tourists. The subject of the analysis presented in the paper shows the measurement of distance demand elasticity with selected variables that influence the tendency to stay far from an everyday environment for leisure time travels. The authors created a method called Distance Elasticity Meter (DEM), which allows to analyse a range of optimal travel times for different target groups. The results can be used to estimate the potential demand of a specific destination and for segmentation analysis. DEM enables the determination of a potential target market in conjunction with the communication access of certain destinations, but it can also have other applications.
