2 qmatters of language and concepts qmatters of experience and exchange (Genova, Istanbul, Oran)

3 The territorial marketing Territorial marketing is a tool to manage a territory and to develop its own value. Territorial marketing includes three branches: q tourism marketing q enterprises and professional skills marketing q city marketing

4 Two philosophies q The American style The main aim of a local community is to sell what they own to those who are the most interested in: - urban areas, - tax breaks, - attractions, - shows. The other aspects just follows. q The European style It means planning and implementing a mix of interventions, not just isolated operations of marketing and selling. A major role is acquired by internal marketing and the systematic aggression to its weak points. In the case of Genoa these weak areas are both tangible (the degradation of the Historical Centre) and intangible (poor abilities and sensibilities to welcome).

5 Tourism marketing Tourism marketing is the ability to attract people for longer or shorter periods with consequent positive effects on the economic, social and cultural fields. Marketing outcomes depend on: q The value of territory (historic, cultural, architectural, landscape heritage) q The level of activism of its community (various events and initiatives) q Integrated offer of structures, services and goods for different target of tourists q The accessibility to the territory and its excellences.

6 The strategic vision The essence of the marketing strategic vision for tourism according to the European approach can be summarized in three key-words: q To protect diversity q To promote diversity q To make diversity accessible In European and Mediterranean cultures diversity and identity match perfectly.

7 Potentialities of tourism development q The awareness of its identity q A systemic vision of territorial marketing q A few major events promoting the city s image together with the enhancement of tourism services q The enhancement of welcome and accessibility services

8 Implementation and promotional development A systemic vision of tourism promotion requires high territorial marketing professionalism, in particular: q The political-administrative commitment of the city q The elaboration of a strategic plan including priorities, human capital to be involved in and budget q The coordination of different actors involved in tourism promotion, both at private and public level q ad hoc private organizations (special companies or agencies for tourism promotion) q Operational plans for communication, advertising and promotion of all kinds of tourism q Operational plans of internal marketing to involve people and private entrepreneurship q The creation of new enterprises for tourism, welcoming and leisure

9 Identity of the town, awareness and strategy GENOVA ISTANBUL ORAN City of conjunction among Mediterranean and European countries (geographically and culturally) City of conjunction among Asian and European countries (geographically and culturally) The most European city among Algerian cities City protagonist as an independent Sea Republic of the Mediterranean Sea since Roman Age until French Revolution City of palaces and domes, rich historic and cultural heritage City as a home for various ethnic, social and religious communities City protagonist as a capital of three empires: Eastern Roman Empire, Byzantium Empire and Ottoman Empire City of minarets and domes, rich historic and cultural heritage City as a home for various ethnic, social and religious communities City protagonist of Algerian history Architectural heritage, example and witness of all historic periods Mare e Riviera Ligure Bosphorus Belle et coquette European Capital of Culture in 2004 European Capital of Culture in 2010 Local tourism but looking at new targets (pied noirs, business tourism)

The most engaged are Bank Foundations Private institutions mostly work with government tenders Private institutions and sponsors occasionally attend to meetings and activities Privates get incentives and subsidies such as credits, low cost loans, rights and lands Privates invest money in hotels and infrastructures but their involvement is minimum Projects to promote their identity are financed by alternative mechanisms

19 Involving people and associations: how is the administrative staff selected and trained to achieve territorial marketing goals GENOVA ISTANBUL ORAN Administrative staff selection is based on personal attitudes and competition Administrative staff is selected to specifically serve territorial marketing areas; they come from various public and private educational programs, vocational high schools, university departments specialized on tourism No appropriate structures

20 Involving people and associations: the importance of voluntary work (associations and spontaneous groups) GENOVA ISTANBUL ORAN Private cultural associations are very often involved, they participate and promote many events Some foundations are focused on restoration, preservation, and maintenance works Associations for touristic development do not exist Foundations and NGOs accept donations from privates for maintenance and operational activities Cultural associations preserve historic and natural environment Their importance is increasing in accordance with the country s economic growth The association Bel Horizon trains touristic guides specialized in city tours
