heal.abstract
In the modern globalised world, competition among tourism destinations becomes more severe. Destinations who can offer a tourism product that is able to attract new visitors who get emotionally attached with the destination and repeat their visit, can create and sustain a big competitive advantage. Creative tourism, the evolution of cultural tourism, is a contemporary form of tourism that can exploit visitor’s creative sense and treat him/her as an active member of the local lifestyle. To implement such a shift in tourism product, participatory destination management is an intangible asset and a basic perquisite. Collaborative actions for tourism development using stakeholder management and contemporary governance is the most efficient and legitimate way to exploit all possible social and economic resources of a destination in a sustainable manner. In this context a coordinator organization, a local DMO is a strong meta-governance structure that express collaboration processes. The current study attempts to conduct a reality check on the willingness of stakeholders in Thessaloniki, Greece to adopt such a policy and use it as a foundation of a shift to creative tourism that can move the city from the edge of co-production of tourism products to the edge of co-creation of tourism experiences with visitors.
