Using Multiple Senses in Tourism Marketing: The Helsinki Expert, Eckero Line and Linnanmaki Amusement Park Cases
In order to create awareness & motivation among future travellers, tourism communication, should, according to our understanding, not only appeal to the visuals, but to all user senses in an inter medial mix. Hence, smell, sound, touch, taste and sight must be touched, in order for communication to be perceived valuable and interesting, as we argue that the activation of multiple senses enhances the feeling of authenticity and experience. If combined with ration and need, in addition to the involvement of other users, only then can tourism marketing claim to be future-oriented and engaging. According to Lindstrom and Kotler (2005) our understanding of the world, for the most part, is experienced through multiple senses. Our senses are the link to memory and can tap right into emotion. After sight, smell appears to be the most persuasive sense. We will, in this article present a few related cases, our findings and discuss the implications of our findings.
