Is Your Town a Destination? - CIEL's new Tourism Solutions for Communities
CIEL has released its The Tourism 360 Guide - The Essential Guide for Assessing Your Community's Tourism Potential, a free how-to manual for rural communities.
“We hear it over and over again when we work with small towns,” says CIEL Executive Director Mike Stolte. “They want to develop tourism, but they aren't sure where to start.” The Tourism 360 guide will help you assess how well its doing in six critical areas: brand, social media, website, tourism experiences, community vitality and sustainable tourism. It also provides valuable links to the best web resources in each of these areas. Download Tourism 360 FAQ.

The Tourism 360 Guide also comes with a 50-question survey. The questions are thought-provoking—they will get you thinking about tourism, and your community, in a new way. This survey tool is designed to be used in a community tourism development process facilitated by the CIEL team.
