    Kearsley (2002) has said that "if this film (Lord of the Rings) achieves half of what is expected, it will be massive for New Zealand - Critically examine the impact of the film of New Zealand tourism policy.

    A population of 3.8 million makes it one of the world's least crowded countries (Tourism New Zealand, 2002). New Zealand's landscape varies dramatically from "vast mountain chains, steaming volcanoes, sweeping coastlines, deeply indented fiords to lush rainforests. It has a temperate climate with relatively small seasonal variation makes it an ideal year-round holiday destination" (Tourism New Zealand, 2002). It is easy to see why New Zealand was chosen as the location for filming Lord of the Rings, its diverse landscape makes it the ideal location for everywhere in Middle Earth, from The Shire to Mordor. A portfolio briefing by the minister of tourism in 1999, states "tourism accounts for $9.1 billion annually (10.3% of GDP)

  • Analyse the extent to which Poon's theory relates to the changing nature of tourism in the Costa Brava.

    "8.0 Conclusion: The nature of tourism is changing; Poon's theory of old and new tourism is relevant to the Costa Brava, and does provide a useful basis from which to analyse and relate trends and changes in demand. It should however be said that the model is not entirely conclusive and fails to take into account the fact that an increase in demand for new tourist attractions and motivators does not eliminate the need or demand for the traditional sun-seeking tourist facilities, and perhaps Poon's theory should consider the possibility that both old and new tourism may continue to co-exist, even in the same location. For many, price remains the primary consideration when choosing a holiday destination, and until this changes, there will always be a market for mass tourism. It should therefore be noted that in order to optimize the number of visitors, local tourist boards must take both old and new tourism into account when planning tourist destinations, and should be aware of both markets when promoting the region. 9.0"

  • Discuss the Implications of the Global expansion of Tourism.

    "In conclusion I feel that the implications of the global expansion of tourism are sometimes arguably bad influences on most people except the large western TNC's that operate them. However if you look into more detail on the subject I found that under the surface of poor morals by the TNC tour operators a story of employment and growth in poor host countries has outweighed that treatment."

  • 'A happy worker is a productive worker' Discuss with reference to motivational theories.

    "This quote suggests that individuals at work who are highly motivated will be more productive in their job. This can be from the worker being happy, or other factors that are intrinsic or extrinsic. In conclusion, motivation theories have made a significant contribution to understanding behaviour at work. There is economic motivation, which is being motivated financially. There is also content theories of motivation, which is what motivates behaviour in the organisation. Lastly, there are process theories, which is how the organisation/manager motivate an individual at work. There are a whole range of theories and beliefs on what motivates people in organisations. There is no consensus about motivation, and therefore it is difficult to indicate whether a happy worker is a productive worker. Workers are motivated by various things, however some theorists believe that being happy at work will help be more productive."
