Tourism Innovation and Touristic Emotional Factor – Premises for Evolution?


  • Gabriela Nicoleta Diaconescu
  • Gabriela Cecilia Stanciulescu


Tourism, with its varied implications on people’s lives from an economic, social, cultural viewpoint and regarding the natural environment, has the power to transform society, as a whole, through initiatives that innovate not only tourism, as an industry, but also the way of reporting the tourist experience, as a manner of actively participating, discovering the new and discovering oneself, as an individual. Many tourist experiences are those that have produced positive changes in the tourists’ minds and which, later on, have been integrated as a value reference system into their lives. Sustainable tourism can answer to the newly-discovered trends regarding sustainable development, reaching both the economic side by material benefits obtained as a result of tourist destinations, as well as the emotional side of the traveller by promoting eternal values like beauty, kindness, artistic spirit, naturalness, simplicity; all these are essential elements of the tourist’s experience which can finally influence his/her decisions, way of living and being.
