Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject Tourism, grade: 1,0, University of applied sciences, language: English, abstract: This paper aims to state to which extent culinary experiences affect the touristic situation of a certain destination. Food plays a high role in choosing a destination, which leads to the fact that food tourism plays a significant role in the overall tourism industry. Culinary tourism itself describes a way to witness local tourism through its culinary offers. To properly enjoy those, it is essential to provide culinary experiences, since those are the most memorable and convincing way to make tourists come back in the future. In order to achieve this goal, it is vital for industries to implement culinary storytelling in their marketing approach since this trend is capable of touching the human psyche, it is very authentic and gives the possibility to share feelings and ideas on a personal level. Another current trend in food tourism creating unique culinary experiences is dining in the dark since normal eating turns into a dynamic experience, which requires all five human senses.

This book will be a valuable source of information for those concerned with rural and farm tourism, sustainable tourism and the marketing of "Calibri">local gastronomy. It presents cases with an international and interdisciplinary approach in order to provide ideas for strategic perspectives in tourism studies. Furthermore, for the first time the complex fields of rural and food tourism are examined from an international (Italy and Germany) viewpoint. This book explores ways in which gastronomical heritage (i.e., regional food, organic food) can be incorporated in rural tourism (above all farm tourism) and development policies as well as in new avenues of research e.g., sensory marketing, online marketing) in order to enhance sustainable practices both in the tourism and in the agri-food sector. Overall, the book presents an overview of benchmark practices for professionals (associations of rural tourism, farmers, etc.), while offering scholars a well-founded source to refer to in order to gain up-to-date insights into the state of the art of studies on rural and food tourism.

Tourism is all about visuals. Visuals stimulate our imagination, create fantasy, and drive the audiences to take actions to realize these dreams through perceived reality. With media content presented through channels of television drama, reality shows, TV commercials, and movies, this book presents findings that help us better understand the relationships between nostalgia and film tourism; how reality TV shows affect tourist experience and authenticity; and how visuals stimulate audiences’ taste and olfactory senses and their relationship with gastronomical tourism. The book presents findings that explain the psychological mechanism of how modality and navigability influence tourists’ behavioral intention. With its balanced research methodology (qualitative, quantitative, and the combination of both) and important topics covered in media tourism, Visual Media and Tourism serves as a pertinent reference book for subjects related to special interest tourism, such as film tourism, in undergraduate programs, or modules related to research methods in both undergraduate and graduate programs. It helps readers become better informed on how visuals stimulate travel motivations, condition tourist behaviors, and affect travel experiences. The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Travel & Tourism Marketing.

Destinations rely on regional strategies to support and enhance the tourism product through regional partnerships and integration. Integrated tourism is defined as tourism that is explicitly linked to the economic, social, cultural, natural and human structures of the region in which it occurs. Integrated tourism has evolved to include numerous meanings and definitions, but generally includes a vertical business or industry approach. The first of its kind, this book applies a more inclusive approach to integration by providing insight into inclusive regional development strategies that support both the needs of urban and rural areas whilst enhancing the tourist experience, supporting the positive impacts of tourism and mitigating the negative. Regional studies tend to portray either an urban or rural focus without acknowledging that often these spaces constitute joint governance structures, similar historical and cultural roots, and economic dependencies. Sustainable tourism promotes sourcing locally, such as using rural agricultural products in urban tourism experiences. Furthermore, innovative rural marketing strategies linking tourism heritage, attractions, food and drink trails, and artisans with urban visitors are emerging. Including theoretical and applied research and international case studies, this will be a valuable resource to academics, students and practitioners working in tourism development and regional policy.
