Abstract

The success of many destination marketing initiatives is dependent upon the effective engagement of a significant proportion of small tourism businesses. This represents a significant challenge for public sector agencies charged with the development and implementation of such initiatives, many of which have deliberately integrated e-commerce components in response to the re-engineering of tourism market places and supply chains. Drawing on associated literature and empirical research presented in the form of a case study, this paper makes a contribution towards understanding and knowledge pertaining to small tourism businesses, their engagement in e-commerce practices and consequential interaction with destination marketing organizations.
