2018: Sustainable principles in tourism in the Czech countryside and their management

The book deals with the issue of sustainable principles in the tourism industry of Czech rural municipalities and their management. Currently, the popularity of rural tourism is growing, which increases the demands on the resources of the given destinations and ultimately can lead to their depletion and damage to the destination.

The aim of this book is to determine the characteristics that are typical for sustainable behavior in rural tourism and the subsequent creation of indicators that could enable the management or other interested parties to effectively manage the destination with regard to long-term prosperity in three basic areas of sustainability.

Obálka Ekoznačky a značky kvality v cestovním ruchu

2018: Ecolabels and quality labels in the tourism

Based on data from broadly conceived research, the authors have created a comprehensive overview of used brands, their characteristics, historical relationships and costs of their implementation. At the same time, the book provides a necessary introduction to the theory of brand management, both in general and in specific application to the field of tourism. In the first part, the publication thus offers a more general information base not only for students, but also for professionals in the field of tourism management. Its second part can fundamentally facilitate the decision to choose a certain brand for entrepreneurs in the tourism industry. Although quality marking has been used in the tourism industry for a long time, it is, together with the relatively new eco-label, an important factor in the customer’s decision to use a given service. At least a basic orientation in the given issue is thus necessary for a successful business in the field.
