Abstract [en]

According to the latest UNWTO World Tourism Barometer the first six months of 2007 have

again shown an unexpected growth in the global tourism with the increase of 6 % in Europe

compared with the year before. Swedish politicians have started to see tourism as an

opportunity and in an investigation made 2006 showed that eighty percent of the Swedish

municipalities gave priority to tourism as an industry. This priority is rather logical since

investing in tourism development is profitable since each hundred-krona note an international

tourists spends in Sweden 45-48 SEK returns to the state in the form of taxes and fees. There

are many rather small tourism actors in Sweden who often cooperate in common activities

such as marketing because of equally small financial resources. “Market segmentation is one

of the most crucial long-term strategic marketing decisions a destination or organization

makes, therefore it is crucial that it is performed in a proper manner since it affects the total

planning and a destinations success. I wanted to understand the relationships between various

tourism actors in the County of Västerbotten when it came to efficient marketing management

and tourism development.
