City Branding... Is it Tourism?

In a global village, cities and territories tend to be increasingly undifferentiated among themselves, whether in economic, social or cultural issues. So what can distinguish of each one? That work can and should be done to attract investment, residents, tourists? Cities must be perceived and worked as if a brand was involved. But not depend only upon a symbol, a logo or a picture. They have to represent much more. A city is a unique product in conjunction with a variety of services and offers, given the history and unique characteristics that make it unparalleled. Conquering a reputation that should be based on positive concepts, attractiveness, uniqueness, sustainability and relevance to different types of audiences. It is betting on the differentiation of such distinctive elements that a city can win the challenges of competitiveness and reputation. Ultimately, the decision to do business, live or simply visit a city, depends largely on the image that is built around it

Love is...

Deep feeling, loyalty, common projects and a mysterious flame that burns without being seen.

This is the month for celebrate being engaged with someone, meaning that, not only boyfriends should celebrate but also all the ones that are still in love for each other. No matter if you have 20 or 80 years old you should celebrate this day as a special occasion to demonstrate your love for your companion.
Although nowadays San valentine has become more like a way of merchandising and spending money we can always thing of something special to do without spending lots of money.
We should see this day as an opportunity to say things that we feel but sometimes ar left unsaid all year long simply because we don’t think we need to say it assuming the other already knows it. But although we know we need to hear those things now and then not to forget the feelings are there.
So… what are you waiting for?
Go ahead and prepare a special day or night with or beloved one.

Define Tourism

According to the World Tourism Organization tourism is the deplacment of people from one place far from home and staying, at least, one night off.
I’ve always been fond of tourism and for me tourism is much more then that:
Is enterntainent, leasure, activies, but above all is self care and well being. I consider all that mentioned above to of crucial importance in noadays stressed life. It’s good to relax and to put problems behind the back.
Folowing this speech I’ve decided to have some formation in Tourist area, therefore I’m atteng a MBA in Tourism and I’m loving it.
The worse part is lots of group work to do, lots of reading and lots os self studing. But I think it’s worthing it.
Now I’m planning on giving my first step on that area but it’s not easy because requires a thing I don’t have… money. But I won’t give up and I’ll fight hard to achive my goals.
