Instructions

Part A: Venture identification and situational analysis

Decide the type of tourism venture it will be.  You will determine this by identifying a gap in the tourism market in your chosen country where an opportunity exists to establish a new tourism venture. This is to be new or if not a completely new idea, one that has unique characteristics, that will allow it be differentiated from any other similar venture in the market.

  • A comprehensive situational analysis which draws appropriate conclusions.
  • A segmentation strategy and description of the target market/s.
  • A positioning statement.

The plan should include the following:

a) The overall business objectives i.e. what you want to accomplish

b) An assessment of the market environment, what factors may affect your marketing efforts
