Over 33 destinations have undergone a GSTC Destination Assessment. In this webinar, Dr. Ioannis Pappas will provide insight into GSTC Destination Assessments over the last few years, followed by Sarah John, a master's student from Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, who will share the methodology and results of her master's thesis, which evaluated destinations that have undergone GSTC Destination Assessment regarding their sustainability efforts and their marketing strategy.
