Venice: Doomed to Become a Historical Disneyland?

LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwired - Nov. 25, 2014) - Cities are evolving to meet the prevailing challenges of today, while travellers are broadening their horizons and seeking new adventures. Some things, however, remain very much the same, and in the new Winter issue of Business Destinations we take a look at the enduring appeal of Venice and what brings people to visit over and over again.

Starting out as a trading outpost in the Middle Ages, the city has since made a name for itself as an unrivalled European travel destination and a world-renowned cultural capital. But, with millions of tourists making their way to Venice every year, it's no surprise that the city has happened upon a few challenges. With such huge numbers comes an inevitable measure of wear and tear; an issue only exacerbated by the fact that the Venice economy today is almost entirely dependent on tourism. The new issue of Business Destinations takes a look at the lagoon city and asks the crucial question: must the city diversify in order to survive?

If Venice were in need of such inspiration, then it needn't look any further than the Business Destinations Travel Awards 2014, which gather together the leading lights in the business travel industry. Voted for by business travellers across the globe, the Travel Awards bring together the best conference centres, hotels, apartment complexes and more, and look at the various ways in which they've changed the travel and tourism landscape.

Also in the new Winter issue of Business Destinations is a look at Bangkok's changing image, China's tourism growing pains, Christchurch's regeneration, as well as a host of other stories in the travel and tourism space.
