MARKETING IN THE
TRAVEL AND TOURISM
INDUSTRY
Definition
• Marketing is about anticipating and identifying the
wants and needs of a target market of
consumers, then satisfying those needs in order
to make a profit
• Firstly, travel and tourism organisations must
understand their customers’ demands. This is the
‘anticipating’ and ‘identifying’ part of the definition
Marketing Research
• Anticipating and identifying demands depends on
effective marketing research

Marketing Research
• Classifying customers according to socio-
economic status, lifestyle, family circumstances,
gender and so on
• May involve primary research – surveys,
observation, questionnaires
• And/or secondary research – statistics and
records, quantitative and qualitative
Classifying Customers
• A target market consists of a whole group of
potential customers, drawn from the whole

satisfied

• Holidays and breaks pre-family
• Long holidays
• Activity holidays

customers’ demands are satisfied depends on the
marketing mix of the organisation’s products and
