Visitor attractions represent a complex sector of the tourism industry and are the catalytic focus for the development of tourism infrastructure and services. The third edition of this successful text investigates these issues further and provides more solutions and suggestions for the present and future.

Now in its third edition, Managing Visitor Attractions has been fully revised and updated to include new content on increased visitor numbers, new destinations and attractions, social media, overtourism, environmental awareness and the experience economy. The book includes case studies on topics such as overtourism at natural attraction sites, new attraction development in Egypt, dark tourism in Latin America, dementia-friendly attractions, and managing sporting venues as attractions. New chapters include the role of the visitor attraction manager, managing safety and risk, themed attractions and storytelling, and digital marketing, among many others.

With contributions from around the world, this is an essential text for undergraduate and postgraduate students of visitor attraction management, written by subject specialists with a wealth of experience in this field.
