    Authors: Ryan Thompson

    Destination marketing has permanently changed and will never be the same. Travelers trust reviews from complete strangers more than brand advertising. Consumers are now clearly in control, choosing what, when and how they digest information. Chaos and real-time is the new marketing "normal." Disruption: Destination Marketing in the Post-Advertising Age is the essential guide for marketing tourism organizations including hospitality, tour operators, CVBs, DMOs and attractions.
