  • Factors Driving The Tourists Choice of Alcohol and Drinkscapes: An
           Exploratory Study

    • Authors: Edgar Philip Dsouza Mr. et al.
      Abstract: This study analyses the crucial dimension of variables influencing visitors' choice of drinkscapes and alcohol among those who visited Goa. This research also aims to examine the influence of tourists' knowledge and past experiences regarding alcohol consumption on the choice of alcoholic beverages and the choice of drinkscapes at tourist destinations. Respondents were asked to rate provided attributes on a 5-point Likert scale according to their preferences in selecting alcohol or drinkscapes. Four hundred and eighty-one questionnaires collected from a web-based survey at popular drinkscapes in Goa were analyzed. The research ranks attribute based on the mean values used by consumers when selecting a drinkscape or ordering alcohol. Based on the results of factor analysis, the study found that the most important factors influencing the choice of alcohol were taste, quality, quantity to be consumed, the brand of the alcoholic beverage and the level of intoxication desired. Whereas ambience, entertainment, safe environment, comfortable seating and clean surroundings were the critical factors indicating the choice of drinkscapes for the respondents. Regression analysis also suggested a significant impact of tourists' knowledge and past experiences regarding alcohol consumption on the choice of alcoholic beverages and the choice of drinkscapes. Regarding the implications for drinkscape management, this study suggests placing a stronger emphasis on providing drinkscapes having a beverage list that stands out with good brands and a variety of quality alcoholic beverages, a good ambience that emphasized a safe and clean environment and good entertainment to attract customers to stand out in this competitive industry. This study also contributes to the field by providing practical information that will enable bar managers to facilitate memorable drinking experiences better.

  • Role of Young Adults in Family Vacation Decision Making: A Study across
           Gender

    • Authors: Shayan Basharat Fazili et al.
      Abstract: In recent years, family vacation decision-making has grown in importance as a subject of research for tourism academics since it helps practitioners develop specialized marketing strategies for their target market. However, there hasn't been much focus on how different family members perform during the many stages of deciding on a family vacation. This study examines the three primary stages of choosing a family vacation and the part that young adults play in each stage of this process. The purpose of this study is to understand how young adults engage in choosing family trips. Additionally, this study attempts to examine how gender affects decision-making for family trips at various points of the decision-making stages (idea initiation, information collection, and final decision). The authors ultimately polled a sample of young adults in India using a convenience sampling approach. The empirical results show that young adults are not consistently involved in the idea initiation and final choice stages. The results also indicated that most female young adults rely on their fathers decision to make a choice regarding various aspects of the vacation. Destination marketers will be able to efficiently modify their marketing strategies with the use of this study's findings.

  • Personal Factors Influencing US Travelers’ Sentiments Toward Travel
           Policies to Cuba

    • Authors: Carol Kline et al.
      Abstract: The United States and Cuba have navigated a strained political and economic relationship over the past sixty years; the tone of the relationship is in flux according to Cuban and US leadership, and most recently, COVID-19. Anticipating US travelers’ sentiments towards access to Cuba is more crucial now because of resulting policies playing out within the intersection of the shifting dynamics of the virus and the tumultuous political climate within the US. This study identified the personal factors that influence US travelers’ sentiment towards the US trade embargo and travel restrictions to Cuba. Results reveal that respondents with higher educational achievements, Spanish-speaking ability, Cuban knowledge, and those well-traveled, were likely to oppose the embargo and support access to Cuba.

  • Sports Tourism in Rural Communities: Small Events, Big Impacts

    • Authors: Simone Silva
      Abstract: While the literature supports sports tourism as an effective economic development strategy, small to medium-sized rural communities often do not have the resources to promote mega sports events. This paper presents estimates of the 44th Annual Racer Roundup College Rodeo’s economic impact. In addition to providing a case study of a relatively minor event, the aimed contribution is twofold: it offers solutions to typical challenges faced when estimating smaller-scale events’ economic impacts, and it suggests a simple way to obtain benchmark values for the magnitude of the results. Evidence suggests that the total output generated, given the cost to set up the rodeo, was considerably larger than if the same amount was invested in other traditional rural sectors. The primary catalyst for this result was the tourists’ expenses, in line with the regional economic development export base theory.

  • Youth Sport Influences and the American Development Model: An Analysis

    • Authors: Jill Fjelstul
      Abstract: Youth sport offers physical, mental, and social health benefits with numerous sport and recreational enterprises and venues offering respective programming of multiple sports. Participation rates of youth in sport and recreational activities, however, are declining. In addition, the age most noted to drop out of youth sport is approximately age 13. Numerous influencers impact participation and retention in youth sport. The current report examines factors impacting youth sport participation, motivation, and retention. The report also showcases seven sport governing body initiatives to strengthen youth involvement in their respective sport and could potentially offer insight to other sporting and recreational activities. The report concludes with several implications for all stakeholders who represent and support youth sport and recreational industries respective to participation, commitment, and loyalty. Future research opportunities are also outlined.

  • VIRTUAL REALITY AND BLOGGING IN TOURISM: APPROACHED TOWARDS CREATING
           BETTER TOURIST EXPERIENCE

    • Authors: Anukrati Sharma et al.
      Abstract: Virtual reality in tourism (virtual tourism) and blogging are highly valuable for visitors and travellers since they allow them to undertake a scouting trip before embarking on their adventure, avoid being hassled and avoid crowds while learning more about the location they are visiting or have already been. This paper provides an overview and analysis of the relationship between virtual tourism, blogging, and making the image of tourist destinations through promotion virtually and via blogs. According to the study's findings, virtual tourism cannot replace the actual experience, but it can assist in recreating it if the user has previously visited the location, bringing out new nuances in their experience, or giving them a taste of the destination ahead of time if they have not yet visited. Also, when it comes to digital marketing for tourism, blogging is the frosting on the cake because it is utilized for promotion and communication throughout the pre-travel period, focusing on behavioural factors.

           of Tourists with Strategies for Resilient Recovery of Jammu And Kashmir,
           India

    • Authors: Danish Iqbal Raina et al.
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the influence of the Covid-19 pandemic on changes in tourist perceptions and travel behaviour when visiting Jammu and Kashmir during the unlocked phase of Covid-19. This study is intended to be nice. This pilot study included 208 travellers who were chosen on a non-probabilistic basis.

  • Locals, tourists, and water recreation issues at Claytor Lake, Virginia

    • Authors: Joshua Carroll Ph.D. et al.
      Abstract: Claytor Lake is a 4,500 acre impoundment of the New River, located in southwestern Virginia and is ideal for pleasure boating, fishing, swimming, and exploration. In fall 2020 a visitor survey was administered to capture boater and adjacent landowner perceptions of the recreation experience, identify safety concerns, and help managers to informed decisions. Almost 200 surveys were collected over a month of data collection.Results indicate that respondents tend to be a dichotomous group of “locals” who live on or within a mile of the lake, and “tourists” who travel greater than 50 miles to visit the lake. Additionally, these two groups access the lake differently through either private docks and launches, or public launch sites and the state park, which further complicates water recreation management action on the lake.Respondents also indicated significantly higher “negative experiences” with PWC and Wake Surf boats. Of these user groups, it appears that more frequent users of the lake were the ones to report more issues with PWC and wake surf boats. Additionally, waterfront owners or those living within one mile of the lake reported the highest levels of concern around wake surf and PWC users. Finally, issues of concern varied across different user groups, and there were issues reported with safety and crowding, which also varied across user groups.These results are valuable highlights of how user type and distance from a site can influence interests, and concerns, and may therefore be an important component for recreation site manager outreach and collaborative planning efforts. Recommendations include outreach, education, and more cross-contextual communication between user groups and adjacent landowners.

  • Waste Management Practices of Small Hotels in Dehradun

    • Authors: Arakhita Behera et al.
      Abstract: Waste has emerged as a major issue in the modern society. Due to urbanization, the volume of waste is speedily rising. If the origin of waste creation makes no effort, then all wastes are either disposed of or burnt which results in waste of land, air, water, and energy as well as the growth of undesirable animals, plants and microorganism. Through the associate and involvement of the local population, waste may be managed locally in a sustainable manner. Waste management may be an expensive endeavor if not carried out appropriately. In most of the developing nations, 20-50 percent of urban expenditure budget is directed at management of solid waste. Small hotels in Dehradun, the capital city of Uttrakhand, haven't made any attempts to address their waste-related environmental consequences, which has had a negative effect on the environment. In this paper, waste management practices of small hotels in capital city of Uttrakhand are investigated. Employees of small hotels were given a survey schedule to fill out in order to collect information about their waste management practices. The findings show that small hotels choose to dispose of their waste rather than recycle and reuse it.

  • Returning to Travel: Fear, Coping, and Resilience During the COVID-19
           Pandemic

    • Authors: Wilson Xieu et al.
      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected the tourism industry, resulting in consequences such as travel fear and a decline in travel and tourism. Recognizing the needs of study in pandemic travel, this study explored individuals’ pandemic travel decision-making mechanism by investigating relationships between pandemic travel fear, coping strategies, resilience against travel fear, and pandemic travel intentions. Further, this study investigated the moderating role of risk tolerance in those relationships. The findings of this study suggest that people responded to pandemic travel fear by engaging in different types of coping strategies (e.g., task-oriented, emotion-oriented, and avoidance oriented), and through the coping strategies, resilience against travel fear was built which positively influenced individuals’ travel intentions during the pandemic. Moreover, this study found significant differences in those relationships across high and low risk tolerance groups except for the relationship between resilience against travel fear and pandemic travel intentions. This study deepens our understanding of the pandemic travel decision-making process providing recommendations on how the tourism industry might encourage tourists to travel during the COVID-19 pandemic.

           Calangute Beach, Goa

    • Authors: Geetanjali C. Achrekar Dr.
      Abstract: . The present study aims to know the resident’s perception regarding the economics and socio-cultural impacts of coastal tourism on the world class tourist destination of Calangute beach, Goa. The purpose of selecting this topic is so far there has been no study focusing on the planning and management of coastal tourism in Goa from the holistic perception of residents, since they are the most vulnerable section facing the negative impacts of rampant expansion of tourism in Goa. The present study identifies the factors influencing coastal tourism sustainability from the local perspective.Design/Methodology/Approach:The present study applies research tools like direct observations, structured questionnaire and interview method to collect data from a random sample of 180 residents and using a five-point Likert scale and Chi square test statistics, the study arrives at some major realistic findings.The Findings:The major finding of the study is there is a greater percentage of residents who perceive that the environmental and socio-cultural sustainability is negatively impacted due to massive growth of tourism activity in this part of Goa’s coastal belt, while for the perception on economic sustainability the results are mixed. The various statistical tools give the same results. The study recommends local people’s involvement at a decentralised level for chalking out a participatory coastal tourism management program.Social Implications: Local resident participation and feed back in the planning, processing and implementation of coastal tourism policies and programs will facilitate inclusive and sustainable tourism growth on the Calangute beach belt of Goa.

  • Tourism and Terrorism- A Study of Jammu and Kashmir

    • Authors: ALTAF AHMD KUMAR
      Abstract: AbstractPurpose - This research article analyzes terrorism and its impacts on tourism in Jammu and Kashmir. This article aims to know what terrorism is and how it impacts the tourism sector in the three geographical regions of erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir bifurcated into two union territories by the Indian government after the abrogation of Article 370 of the Indian constitution.Methodology - Secondary data sources have been used, collected from Director Tourism Kashmir, Director Tourism Jammu, Jammu, and Kashmir Coalition of Civil Societies, and Home Ministry of India. In this research paper, the Vector Error Correction Model (VECM) of time series analysis has been used to examine the impact of terrorist activities and human killings on tourist arrivals. The explanatory variables used in this time series analysis consist of human fatalities in Jammu and Kashmir and terrorist attacks from 1990- 2019. Co-integration has been done under the Johansen test, and the VECM has been applied accordingly.Findings – All the three variables were to be found integrated of order one 1(1). The results of the VECM model indicate that the error correction term is negative and significant. It implies a unidirectional long-run causality running from human killings and terrorist incidents to total tourist arrivals. Hence, the outcome indicates that there is a strong long-run relationship among the variables under Study. The VECM model also confirmed that human killings negatively influenced tourist arrivals. There was also a negative relationship between total tourist arrivals and terrorist activities, but it is statistically insignificant. It also confirms that there is a long-run association between total tourist arrivals (LTTA), total human killings (LTHK), and total terrorist incidents (LTTI). It was also confirmed that there is a short-run relation between total human killings (LTHK) and total tourist arrivals (LTTA) and no short-run relation between total human killings (LTTI) and total tourist arrivals (LTTA).The practical implications- This Study enables the policymakers to obtain the necessary information to implement more adequate policies to safeguard this substantially emerging industry.Originality – Literature has been reviewed, and it was found most of the studies have focused on terrorism and its impacts on tourism. Very few have focused on what terrorism is and how it looks like in Jammu and Kashmir, and how it impacts the tourism sector here. Less number of studies have focused on terrorism and tourism, particularly at national and state levels, and least among them have focused on its regional effects. Most of these studies have used regression analysis for their studies. In this paper, efforts have been made to do descriptive and graphical analysis, and finally, the VECM model was applied.Research limitations – The Study has various limitations, most of which twig from the lack of data from one source. I have to collect it from multiple organizations. There was no such data available that shows the killings of tourists or Yatries (pilgrim tourists) during the mentioned period.Key Words -Tourism, Terrorism, Tourism in Jammu and Kashmir, VECM ModelPaper type – Research Paper

  • Do Consumers Raise Their Voices or Leave after Service Failures'
           Examining Angry Rumination, Distraction, and Brand Loyalty

    • Authors: JungYun "Christine" Hur et al.
      Abstract: This study aims to investigate the influence of rumination and distraction on consumer complaining behaviors (e.g., voice, negative word of mouth, and exiting) in a service failure encounter, and further examine the role of brand loyalty in consumer complaining behaviors. The findings of this study suggest that consumers use rumination and distraction to cope with service failures, which has different influences on consumer complaining behavior. Angry rumination increases all three types of consumer complaining behaviors, whereas distraction reduces negative word-of-mouth only. In addition, these relationships vary across the level of brand loyalty. Loyal consumers are more likely to voice their complaints directly to service providers as angry rumination increases, but they are less likely to spread out negative word-of-mouth than non-loyal consumers. The findings of this study contribute to a better understanding of consumer behaviors following service failures and provide a basis for effective service management strategies.

  • A STUDY ON THE PREFERENCE OF HOTEL BOOKING ATTRIBUTES, POST COVID-19
           PANDEMIC

    • Authors: Kamakshya Parsad Nayak et al.
      Abstract: COVID-19 has hit the world at the worst which leads to the loss of both life and economy. The pandemic has also maneuvered the business processes in a different direction. It has also forced the entrepreneurs to think upon their modus operandi for sustaining in the new normal, post-pandemic. The Hospitality & Tourism industry has been hit the most out of the others. Though the recovery from the loss due to pandemic is not that certain as of now, there is a strong belief that the hotel business in the pre and post-pandemic time will be way different as the need prioritization of needs of the customers and their characteristics will witness a shift either for some temporary period or permanently. To cope up with the new normal the hotel owners irrespective of their stature will have to redefine the standard of hotel attributes. So it is very much essential to understand the hotel selection criteria of the travellers in the post-COVID-19 time. For that, a comprehensive scale about finding out the important hotel booking attributes from the traveller’s perspective is the need of the hour. The objective of this research was to explore the most desired hotel booking attributes for travellers. The study was conducted with the travellers in the North Indian region, post COVID-19 pandemic. There were 38 statements on the major attributes of the hotels out of which 8 constructs of hotel attributes were extracted based on exploratory factor analysis and then those were confirmed with the help of confirmatory factor analysis. The major factors which were extracted are namely Hotel Facility & Services, Value for Money, Location, Safety & Security, Automation & Contactless Services, Staff, Cleaning & Sanitization & In-Room Comfort. The extracted factors will assist the management team of the hotels in redefining the hotel booking attributes which will ultimately enhance the guest experience on its implementation in post-COVID-19 pandemic time.

  • FREQUENCY AND USE OF ONLINE TRAVEL SITES WHEN PLANNING A LEISURE VACATION

    • Authors: John Salazar et al.
      Abstract: The growth of online travel agencies has modified how consumers explore possible vacation choices by allowing greater access to the travel and tourism supply chain. This growth also empowers potential travelers to be more discerning when purchasing travel products and services by giving them the opportunity to align their preferences (i.e., price, value, amenity, etc.) with the multiple product offerings available to them via online travel retail sites. This research explores a visitor’s frequency of using online travel sites when planning a leisure vacation and if similarities exist in how frequently these sites are used in the planning process. It also examines if generational differences exist in utilizing these sites. The factor analysis showed that 10 types of online travel sites can be categorized into two factors, and the ANOVA indicated that site frequency usage differs by generation. These findings can be beneficial to both managers of online travel sites and direct suppliers of travel products.

  • Insights from Pennsylvania: Marketing agritourism for the American cider
           culture

    • Authors: Alison E. Feeney et al.
      Abstract: Destinations and activities for travelers are greatly influenced by official tourism agencies that promote their local resources. Marketing for well-known places like breweries or vineyards can be straight forward, but destinations without clear descriptions can be more challenging. This paper examined how cider is defined, promoted, and marketed by official tourism websites to evaluate its potential for supporting the agritourism industry given the resurgence in craft beverages and increased public interest to purchase local products. Discrepancies between federal and state regulations of cider contribute to the public’s lack of awareness of what cider is, who can make it, and how it can be sold. A Quantitative Content Analysis (QCA) was used to evaluate how cider was marketed as a travel opportunity, particularly with its connections for agritourism. The methodology includes a set of questions that systematically evaluate text, graphics, and videos displayed on official tourism websites. While this study focused on Pennsylvania, it also compared and contrasted marketing strategies of other top cider-producing states. Results indicate that food and drink tourism is important and most states promote locally made beverages. Although cider was included in many of these promotions, it was inconsistently placed amongst other products. Cooperation and communication between local, state, and federal agencies in addition to local businesses could potentially improve cider sales and bring economic opportunities to rural communities wanting to increase agritourism.

  • Thriving Private-Community Partnerships: Perspectives from Fiji’s Upper
           Navua Conservation Area

    • Authors: Jeremy Schultz et al.
      Abstract: Ecotourism has proven itself to be a forerunner in the advancement of environmental conservation all the while supporting cultural tradition, uniqueness, and pride among indigenous communities. Successful private-community partnerships associated with ecotourism operations are vital to the overall prosperity of both the businesses and the local communities. Such accomplishments can be seen through numerous livelihood goals including income, food security, health, reduced vulnerability, governance, and empowerment (Walpole & Wilder, 2008).Private-community partnerships also support global initiatives such as the Sustainable Development Goals (Ban Ki-Moon, 2015) and sustainable development frameworks including those proposed by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO, 2015). Understanding such partnerships assists not only large organizations such as the WTO, but it also benefits smaller ecotourism operators and entrepreneurs who are trying to achieve their sustainable tourism development goals.This study examined the partnership between an ecotourism company (Rivers Fiji) and two rural villages located in Fiji’s Upper Navua Conservation Area. Focus groups were conducted in each village. Observation journals were also used to record conversations outside of the focus groups. Data were thematically organized and analyzed to offer researcher interpretations and understandings.

  • Understanding Contraflow Pop-Culture Tourism: The Case of Transnational
           Fandom of South Korean Pop-Culture and the “Hallyu” Tourism

    • Authors: JungYun "Christine" Hur et al.
      Abstract: Pop-culture tourism has continuously grown its market among those who are fanatic of pop-culture, and destination marketers have noticed pop-culture as an effective marketing tool to attract more visitors. Pop-culture has been dominant by the US, but interestingly, a recent phenomenon sees a contra-cultural flow. This paper explores contraflow pop-culture tourism and guides the reader to how to understand this new tourism niche. Reviewing the case of transnational fandom of South Korean pop-culture, so called “Korean Wave” or “Hallyu” and its impact on inbound tourism, this paper suggests digital mediation as a key driver of contraflow pop-culture and transnational fandom, pop-culture as a vehicle for change destination image, and pop-culture tourism as a driving force of creative economy.
