Las Vegas Versus Macao As Diversified Travel Destinations, Carlos Siu Lam, John Crossley

Journal of Tourism Insights

Events and festivals can help attract people to a destination, and this study was to examine how events and festivals can build and diversify tourism. With their programs of pleasurable activities and entertainment, events and festivals have a historical trajectory of delivering development outcomes such as economic restructuring and tourism revenue generation. In addition, events and festivals can provide an opportunity for a leisure, social, or cultural experience that is outside the normal range of visitors’ choices.

Rv Association Members' Profile: A Demographic Segmentation And Lifestyle Exploration, Jill Fjelstul

Journal of Tourism Insights

The aim of this study was to profile members of a large RV association by market segmentation and lifestyle travel patterns. A cluster analysis identified two clustered segments utilizing demographic variables. Findings were further examined by travel patterns within each cluster. Destination RVers favored weekend travel and/or staying at a particular destination throughout their travel experience. Touring RVers, conversely, traveled from park to park with minimal stays at each park. A one-way ANOVA revealed significance between clusters with each travel pattern. Implications and strategies were outlined for the stakeholders and travelers of the RV industry.

The Business Of Beds: An Exploration Of Hotel And Hostel Business Strategy, Robert B. Bunda

Honors Scholar Theses

In stark contrast, the hostel industry began in 1909 and is mostly comprised of independently owned and operated guesthouses, with the largest global chain comprising of less than twenty properties.

The advent of the automobile transformed the American landscape in the 20th century. In conjunction with the increasing importance of the automobile, numerous post-WW II government programs such as the Interstate Highway System encouraged suburban sprawl. Towns and cities adjacent to tourist attractions, known as gateway communities, face unique problems caused by sprawl. Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, is an example of a gateway community as it includes the Gettysburg National Military Park. Two study sites, portions of Steinwehr Avenue and York Street, were studied to analyze the effects of sprawl in Gettysburg. The sites were analyzed using ArcGIS, data compiled from historic ...

The Association Between Aircraft Fleet Variety And Fuel Efficiency, Matthew J. Judd 2014 SelectedWorks

The Association Between Aircraft Fleet Variety And Fuel Efficiency, Matthew J. Judd

Matthew J. Judd

One consideration for aircraft operators is how to have the most efficient fleet composition. Fleet makeup could be a diversified fleet makeup or a standardized fleet makeup. The decision is important because it shapes the way the fleet is operated. I examined the effect of aircraft type variety on fleet-wide fuel efficiency. The research hypothesis was that a varied fleet is more fuel efficient than a homogenous fleet. The hypothesis was tested through an analysis of academic and government literature and data. A correlation analysis through evaluation of scatterplots between number of aircraft types and fuel use per seat mile ...
