Trade or ‘industry’ refers to the local businesses within a destination for example:

  • Hotels
  • Bed and Breakfasts
  • Activity Centres
  • Attractions
  • Local shops
  • Cafes
  • Restaurants
  • High street shops

All of the businesses mentioned above and many more are connected to the visitor and sometimes depend heavily on visitors for income, and therefore have a vested interest in effective destination management.
