    Erwin Van de Wiele Story: Ghent/ Belgium
    As a city Ghent is somewhat the rebellious son in the Belgian cityscape: a bit edgy on the outside, warm and generous on the inside. In our communication and promotion we try to be consequent and faithful to that image. The result is a somewhat different view on authenticity and how to promote our city. If we promote it. We like to believe we don’t organise events or we don’t promote anything unless it is ‘on brand’. This is our strategy? Or is it attitude?”

Possible? “Too many” and sustainability issues - are these questions crucial for emerging destinations or only for mature and popular destinations?

    What if destination attracts “wrong guests”,are there any tools to change the guest profile? if yes, can you give some examples?
    How to control visitor flows? When “more” is not always better? Is that only a question of quanity or also in the destination resources to provide experiences and spread the flows across the destination?
    Successful tourism destination,satisfied visitors and a comfortable place where people live, study and work. Possible? If yes, can you give some great successful cases?
