Emerging City Destinations in Europe - June 2015

“It is in the interest of these cities to position their tourism product upmarket in order to attract a discerning and high-value-adding customer base. All the cities covered in this report certainly offer world-class attractions that would interest the most discerning and well-travelled tourist. However, in order to attract a high-spending ‘upper-crust’ clientele, the destinations need to have in place the right infrastructure in terms of air route networks and luxury hotels to serve a demanding customer base.”
- Jessica Kelly, Senior Tourism Analyst

This report looks at the following areas for each city destination:

What are the city’s main attractions and new developments?
What has been the trend in arrivals, air passenger traffic and overnights in the city?
