We had the opportunity to learn about Tourism and Cultural Heritage management with Dr. Indounas. This lecture was personally my favorite from the whole course because it was very question and answer heavy which helped me learn more. First we started off with the basics, what is management? Management does not have one single definition but can be described in a couple different ways. First, it is the allocation of resources. Next, it is delegating people. Third, it is maximizing efficiency. And last, and probably most important in my eyes is that it is leading, whether this be a group of people or organizing things. There are also three questions that need to be asked: Where are we now? Where do we want to be? How will we get to the place we want to be? These are all important questions to be asked to complete a common goal, whether it is a big goal or small goal. The Tourism Industry is obviously a huge part of the Greek economy. The sectors included in the tourism industry are accommodations, travel, adventure and recreation, professional events and conferences, food and beverages, eco-tourism, wellness, and attractions. The image to the right shows how Santorini is ranked number 4 on the top 10 islands of the world list. Cultural heritage is something that is inherited from past riches. Country’s or area’s history building and sites that are considered to be of interest and value to present generationals. Some of the popular places tourists like to visit are the listed buildings, conservation areas, monuments, registered parks and gardens, registered battlefields, and world heritage sites. There are many special characteristics of tourism services: intangibility, variability, inseparability, and perishability. I learned the importance that one sector of revenue can have on a country’s economy.
