Country reports: social media in travel

Country reports: social media in travel

Over the past nine months, we have been producing reports for World Travel Market London on how different countries have adapted to social media in their promotion of travel.

As you will appreciate, it has been quite a year in how tourist boards/destination management organisations (DMOs) have come to terms with this disruption to their travel promotion and marketing.

WTM originally published these reports as PDFs for which you had to register. As from the last report they are published as web pages, free of registration.

So here are our first five reports, the latest available in webpage form, and compelling content. Read here how the world of travel is embracing, and changing, with social media:
