Books mean the world to me. In the course of the last few years, I have not only written four books of my own, but have also contributed to several renowned international trade publications. Almost exclusively, my focus was on creative tourism as an international trend in cultural tourism, as well as trends in social media marketing (again, with reference to cultural tourism).
Most recently, I had the privilege of contributing two chapters to a publication called “Creative Tourism: Activating Cultural Resources and Engaging Creative Travellers” for the international publishing group CABI, which specializes in publishing books on human sciences and tourism.
One of my chapters discussed the basics of creative tourism in Austria, with special reference to Kreativ Reisen Austria and the demand for this kind of cultural tourism in this country. The other one was dedicated to the broader topic of “Creative Tourism Marketing & Social Media“: Here I got to write about my professional experiences in the field as well as my work for the European cultural tourism network EuropeTour.tips.
