Personal profile

Research interests

One of my main research interests is the economic impact of tourism.

Tourism can have a big impact on the economy of regions or city. It brings in income and leads to employment and added value. Even companies that are not directly linked to tourism can benefit from it. Together with colleagues I carry out economic impact analyses. The method I use, which is founded in decades of scientific research (including my own PhD research) and years of practical experience, allows for a detailed calculation of these impacts. I can show which economic sectors benefit the most, how many people (in each sector and in total) have work because of tourism, and what the total value of tourism is for the economy. Besides looking at the current situation the method may be used to look at future impacts and compare the excepted impacts of different policy scenario’s. E.g. calculating the impacts of a new marketing campaign or new tourism facilities.

The fact that several Dutch provinces and municipalities are using this method allows for useful comparisons. The analysis of the economic impacts can be combined with analyses of social and environmental impacts of tourism and be put in a framework of destination management and marketing.
