My research project
Economic impacts evaluation of experiential tourism
My study aims to model the economic impacts of experiential tourism interventions in six English- French regions, which currently deal with seasonality issue as the majority of visitors arrive in spring and summer. Through modelling the complex interactions between visitors and businesses using agent-based modelling, the contribution of innovative products and services in increase of visitor number and expenditure, business performance growth and eventually expansion of off-season tourism will be measured.
