1. Rural tourism associated with agriculture as an economic alternative for the farmers - Calado, Luísa; Rodrigues, Ana; Silveira, Paulo; Dentinho, Tomaz
This paper aims at presenting a possible approach to identify the best sites for rural tourism and also to analyze the synergies between agriculture and cultural heritage in Azores, in order to be incorporated in the full range of management concerns into private and public decision‑making. The following territorial aptitudes for alternative were used to simulate this exercise: urban, touristic, horticulture, agricultural, cattle and forestry. Soil potential was defined in a number of classes from I to VII. The best hypothetical sites for rural tourism were defined using Geographical Information Systems (GIS).

2. Tourist destination image formed by the cinema : Barcelona positioning through the feature film Vicky Cristina Barcelona - Rodríguez Campo, Lorena; Fraiz Brea, José Antonio; Rodríguez-Toubes Muñiz, Diego
The image formed by the movie industry often represents an added value for certain destinations because it works as a real tool for promotion at an international level and as a factor that induces travel. The representations and images of tourist destinations developed through the mass media, such as cinema, television and literature play a truly significant role which influences in the process of vacation spot decision. These media are very influential in promoting, confirming and reinforcing images, opinions and the destination identity, and play an outstanding role in the image construction of tourist destinations. In other words, the way in which the destination is represented in...

3. Benchmarking of tourism products and implementation in Galicia - Castro, Belén; Iglesias, Montserrat; Piñeira, María José; Paül, Valerià
Benchmarking could be defined as the systematic process of identifying, comparing and learning from the best practices or successful experiences of a particular sector in diverse geographical areas by disaggregating and analysing in an orderly manner the set of factors that condition their success. The outcome of this process helps improve key processes of a sector or adapt those practices that after a long search have been proven successful, to other areas. This study has gathered, in an orderly and synthetic manner, diverse successful experiences that guarantee a sustainable model for tourism from a social, environmental and economic point of view. These experiences fall under four types...

4. Travel experience ecosystem model : building travel agencies’ business resilience in Portugal - Salvado, Josefina
The Portuguese tourism distribution recognizes in the digital economy drivers - based on e-business, collaborative networks and information exchange - an incentive to productivity and rendibility, leading to sustainable competitive advantages. Travel agencies live currently in a Darwinian business-oriented environment, where only resilient entrepreneurs are able to survive. This framing allows the genesis of a new theoretical archetype of travel agencies, the “TEEM - Travel Experience Ecosystem Model” observing several organizational strategies and concepts, such as Resilient Virtual Organizations, Digital Customer Ecosystems, Collaborative Value Chain and Co-Creation travel experiences, as well as new types of Open Source Innovation trough Social Web.

5. The impact of secondary information sources on the formation of the tourist image : the case of rural tourism in Galicia - Andrade Suárez, María José
In a context of intense competition among tourist destinations, the perceived image is key and plays, in turn, a key role in the choice of destination, as the values associated to it represent a decisive factor in the purchase decision process by potential tourists. In this context, many researchers agree that the image is usually formed by two main forces: stimulus or external factors and internal personal factors. The former refer to the number and nature of sources of information to which individuals are exposed. The latter include motivations, demographic characteristics and the geographical and cultural background of tourists. The aim of this paper is, therefore, to...

6. Effects of climate change on romanian mountain tourism : are they positive or mostly negative? - Surugiu, Camelia; Surugiu, Marius-Razvan; Frent, Cristi; Breda, Zélia
Climate change represents a real threat for the winter sport resorts, especially those situated at low altitudes and without any diversification of the tourism product. Mountain tourism represents a real attraction for the holidays and for short weekends being mostly visited by tourists in summer and winter season, which make them more vulnerable to the lack of snow in the cold season, floods, storms or even heat waves. This paper has two main objectives, firstly to measure the impact of the climate change on tourism demand for Romanian mountain tourism, and secondly to identify sustainable solutions for adaptation of vulnerable mountain resorts, such as Sinaia, one of...

7. Islandness and remoteness as resources : evidence from the tourism performance of small remote island economies (SRIES) - Sufrauj, Shamnaaz
Small remote island economies are known to face a number of economic challenges, particularly, in their trade relations. This paper investigates the impact of remoteness and islandness on tourism performance. Remote islands are found to be well‑endowed in nature and scenery. The empirical results show that nature positively impacts tourism performance (revealed comparative advantage) and tourism demand. Interestingly, while being distant is detrimental to tourism performance, being both an island and remote is favourable. Tourism demand is negatively affected by being an island, a small country, or a remote country but favoured by being a small or a remote island.
