Destination – Business & Management Review is a specialized page in which covers analyses and insightful comments on the tourism business, management, and development.
The project is developed and managed by Outbox Consulting – independent research & consulting firm specialized in tourism and hospitality pioneering in Vietnam. Outbox has been working with a number of partners and clients across sectors from DMOs to private enterprises. We realized that there is a very fundamental need for an information platform distinctively designed for experts, entrepreneurs and practitioners in tourism, where they could share their inspiring start-up stories, experiences, and expertise. This acts as a catalyst for us to develop Destination, with an ambition of creating a sustainable tourism practitioners community.
Pursuing its mission, Destination is going beyond providing the industry’s news and information, updating trends, we are committing to telling inspiring stories of “how to successfully develop, manage destinations and effectively operate tourism businesses”.
