Operational MKT



To increase the opportunities of commercialization toward trade and final consumer is crucial to achieve success in tourism development programmes.

This is the area of the operational marketing: it deals with planning and management of innovative programmes and tools to promote destinations, companies, products and to find new sales channels, to stimulate contacts and ease sales.

We can help to identify targets, to select the most convenient mix of channels, to realize successful events to involve intermediaries, prescriptors and final consumers. To support all the actions, Econstat  takes advantage from its internal data base: more than 4000 international actors operating in tourism trade classified per areas of specialization.
