Proposed Research Topic: Strategic Marketing in Tourism
Potential in tourism sector has continued to flourish over time. The growth of the industry has seen both the public and private sectors invest heavily on tourism facilities and guiding materials. The tourist offer of these destinations involves international community and is the result of interaction among public and private sectors who act autonomously (Ruggero). These two sectors have different roles, competences and capabilities enabling them to manage the tourism industry.

I will also conduct ground survey of what individuals at local and international level think of the industry. I will engage tourism firms and the stakeholders in both public and private sectors.
I will articulate the research in two segments: the first segment identifies elements used to classify stakeholders in the market while the second segment tackles opinions of the market controllers.
Active (primary) stakeholders will be identified through descriptive and...
