Tourism Portals

Poster

In 2019 we are relaunching our global guide to tourism portals around the world. We ask how well institutions respond/interact/engage with locals and visitors on social web channels, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

We would love to see more current information on government portals about local culture – including food, sport and markets, as well as upcoming events for the public and for specialized audiences, aka business travel and workshops. We would like to see more details about ecotourism, responsible travel, conscious travel and Indigenous tourism services.
