Tourism, like so many modern industries, is essentially an assembly process. In few situations does one organisation or company control all the components, or all the stages and decision-making processes in the creation and delivery of the tourism product.
That is why in most industrial sectors and particularly in the tourism industry, it has become commonplace for organisations to collaborate in order to achieve the goals they have established for themselves.
?A key reason for the growing interest in collaboration in tourism is the belief that organizations and destination areas may be able to gain competitive advantage by bringing together and sharing their combined knowledge, expertise, capital and other resources? (Kotler et al., 1999b).
Does networking within tourism destinations hinder innovation and freedom of choice?
First it is necessary to define the key words in the question above, the key words being, tourism destinations, innovation and freedom of choice. Before talking about tourism networking, I will show that tourism destinations do not hinder innovation and freedom of choice. Finally I will present my research on networking in tourism, based on the fact that it is essential for a tourism destination in particular for SME's. I will also discuss the idea that it hinders innovation and freedom of choice by comparing the potential problems and benefits of networking.
