Abstract

The purpose of the study is to provide information that will assist the tourism industry in the Vancouver Island region and in particular stakeholders and members of Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs) to make better decisions about their marketing activities in an urban and/or rural context. In doing so, it should perform a similar function for members of the tourism industry more widely by indicating factors that shape decision making in marketing and management in general.

It seeks to achieve this by finding out what participants in the tourism industry on Vancouver Island think about stakeholder and membership models of DMOs, and how these views might be shaped by the rural or urban locations of their industry and/or by their own views about the characteristics or attributes of urban and rural locations.
