Learning Goal: I’m working on a tourism writing question and need an explanation

Learning Goal: I’m working on a tourism writing question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.Keep everything organized as it is below.1. a). It is not entirely possible for Tourism Kamloops to orchestrate the entire visitor
experience. Although, Pine and Gilmore initially forwarded a perspective that stressed “that
the mechanics and humanics of organization–consumer and consumer–consumer interactions
should be carefully designed, integrated and managed to ensure an emotional connection,
loyalty, and satisfaction”, later improved perspectives have proven that the assumptions upon
which Pine and Gilmore’s early perspective was premised were wrong. For instance, the guest
or client is not passive. Thus their experience is typically cocreated with the business as well
as the consumer experience and expectations.
b). In this regard, the implication on Tourism Kamloops is that they should approach offering
a unique ‘Kamloops experience’ without the assumption of cultural hegemony or predictable
guest response. Each guest is individual and unique and with the changing nature of
guests customization of experience is key. Also, because modern tourists engage in numerous
non-market-related interactions, it is not possible “to control and influence these aspects of
the destination experience”. The best way forward, therefore, is to endeavor to offer each
tourist a unique experience of Kamloops without spending too many resources on trying to
orchestrate the experiences.2. a). Culture confusion or culture shock is a state of anxiety (confusion and shock)
when a guest visiting a new place loses most of their familiar signs and symbols
of social interaction. The state of anxiety and disillusionment is mostly preceded
by the euphoria of crossing one cultural space to another. For instance, a Kazakh student coming to Canada for studies experiences the excitement and
euphoria of coming into a new culture and society. They then get disillusioned
when they realized all their hitherto signs and symbols of interaction are useless
in this new space. When initial attempts to adapt do not seem to work they get
hostile before they realize the only way forward is to adapt and eventually they
assimilate.
b). However, this model does not work in all cases. Especially in the hybridity of the modern global world, not everyone experiences culture shock in the same
sequence of stages when visiting new places. Moreover, some tourists – being in
a bubble created by their hosts – often see no need to try and adapt to local
signs and symbols of interaction. Therefore, they do not feel depressed and
neither do they go through the hostility stage. c). As noted in b above, Hottola found that most backpackers expected culture
shock and indeed the shock (like risk in adventure tourism) was part of the thrill
of backpacking. Moreover, due to the hybridity and globalization of many
destinations, the culture shock curve is no longer applicable to many cases. In the
cases examined, most people seemed to go directly from euphoria and
disillusionment to adaptation without necessarily going through the depression
stage. This is perhaps explained by the fact that many backpackers expect
culture shock and prepare for it.3.a). Instrumental attributes refer to the physical products of a destination
whereas expressive attributes refer to the psychological interpretations of the
destination. The absence of certain attributes of a physical product – e.g., lack of
properly maintained tracks at a ski resort – leads to dissatisfaction as do the negative emotions (expressive) that arise from the bad experience of using
poorly maintained tracks. During dinner at a local restaurant, the instrumental
attributes would include the promptness of their service, how clean the facility is
as well as the quality of their food. These are cognitively assessed. If the service
is not good – for instance, the food takes too long and the waiter is rude – the
expressive attribute here would be my emotional reaction. I would be angry and
annoyed. Because human beings are more likely to make decisions about such
places based on emotion rather than pure reasoning, the expressive attributes of
the local restaurant would affect my satisfaction greatly and lower my chances
of coming back. b).
i). Equity theory – the consumer expects equal or more reward to their
expenditure – i.e. “Thus, it can be said that if tourists receive benefits or value
based on their time, effort, and money for travel, the destination is worthwhile.”
In the restaurant above, the money, time, effort, and other resources used to go
out for dinner would be way more than the reward received in terms of good
service, food, and overall comfort at the restaurant. Accordingly, my satisfaction
would be low and the destination would not be worthwhile. ii). Norm theory – this is an equation between the consumer’s expectation and
the actual experience of the product. Thus if the experience exceeds the
expectation then positive disconfirmation happens. If the opposite happens, on
the other hand, negative disconfirmation occurs.
In the restaurant example above, the norm when one goes out for dinner is to
have a better dining experience than if one cooked at home. Thus the facility,
physical products/food, service, and overall experience must meet if not exceed
expectations. Dissatisfaction sets in when the restaurant does not match these
norms.4.a). Unlike consumer product brands, tourism consists of complex or more
subtle interrelationships across different levels of tourism. Existing loyalty
models produce poor results when applied to tourism, particularly because tourism products and decisions exist within a large ecosystem of interconnected
providers and destinations. As such loyalty in the industry is cannot be studied
within a single-tier model like with other products. Three important issues stand
out when discussing loyalty in tourism. Mckercher et al., discuss them in brevity.
They include;
i). Vertical loyalty – where consumers are loyal to different players and brands at
different levels of the tourism system simultaneously. Current models are
designed to only evaluate single enterprises or entities within those enterprises.
This is not possible in tourism. ii). Horizontal loyalty – substitutionally is the norm in tourism rather than the
exception. As such, being loyal to more than one player at the same level of the
industry is not only common but is expected. For instance, a good restaurant in
Spain cannot have branches in every destination that a tourist decides to visit.
Such a tourist, therefore, has to be loyal to more than one restaurant at a time
without necessarily ending their loyalty to the other. Current models do not
accommodate this discrepancy in the tourism industry.
iii). Experiential loyalty – tourists can be loyal to certain experiences rather than
single brands or destinations. A backpacker who is loyal to this style of
experienceb). There are endless destinations across the world offering tourists endless
options. It is easier to be loyal to a certain experience of travel, therefore, rather
than a particular brand. To attract tourists to Kamloops, the best approach
would be to take advantage of the region’s comparative advantage when it
comes to the alpine adventure tourism experience. Because of the region’s terrain,
the winter sports tourists are likely to want to take advantage of the alpine
resorts in the region. In summer, adventure tourists can hike across the hilly
terrain.
I would focus on marketing the adventure experience rather than individual
resorts.5.a). eTourism merely referred to the integration of ICT by tourism organizations
to improve business strategy and organizational performance. Smart tourism, on
the other hand, is the use of digital innovations to fuse the physical world with
the digital world through IoT, AI, and the internet. Accordingly, a destination
evolves to an eDestination when it moves from the simple use of ICT to improve
operations to the total fusion of the physical world and the digital one to create an
experience that is beyond what eTourism offers. Disney World, for instance,
has moved from an e-destination to a smart destination by integrating
technology in its operations to offer visitors an enhanced experience that fuses
the physical with the digital. For instance, by using a single smart wristband,
visitors are able to access all the sections of the theme part that they have paid
for. Over the last few years, this has helped reduce waiting for lines as well as
improve the accessibility of different areas as a combination of the smart band with the Disney mobile app guides guests around different areas of the theme
park. Of course, this has been made possible by the emergence of the smart
tourist. This is a tourist who has accepted to use of smart technologies. This tourist
is willing to trade off a bit of personal privacy for improved and efficient service.
Moreover, tourists such as those visiting Disney world are willing to share data
with stakeholders for the sake of improved experiences in the theme park.b). They can integrate smart digital technology to enhance their ability to control
and manage risks of covid transmission. For instance, by using IoT and data
integration systems destinations can give priority to vaccinated tourists and offer
ease of return to the home destination by sharing data with relevant stakeholders in
the sending countries
