Views On Tourism is part of the professional online network LinkedIn!
I invite you to become a member of the LinkedIn group ‘Views On Tourism – Bangladeshi network and discussion’, which is a professional online group uniting national, regional and international stakeholders related to, or interested in, a sustainable tourism development in Bangladesh and South Asia.
The potential of this network group is huge! Imagine a national tourism network where members can interact, national as well international, to exchange views, find new employees, develop sustainable destinations, start up innovative products, announce events or launch investment possibilities. The ultimate network goal is to unite the professional, knowledgeable and visionary people, and become a pioneer force in encouraging a sustainable tourism movement in Bangladesh and South Asia.

The importance of an active tourism network
A crucial action to any player in the tourism sector is networking in order to get individual success and at the same time to obtain an economic, socio-cultural and environmental sustainable destination development. To know more about this topic read the article The complexity of tourism – and what to do about it, which provides an outline on the many players involved in a tourism industry, why networking is particularly crucial to the tourism industry and how to improve your own networking skills to achieve individual success as well as a sustainable destination development.
Online tourism networking
Face to face networking is important, but why not take these skills to a higher and broader level? An acknowledged successful tourism strategy is to enhance cooperation between the many tourism players national, regional and international.
Based on this experience, and input from several local Bangladeshi tourism players, I am convinced that Bangladeshi tourism could gain a lot by increasing online cooperation between the many different stakeholders in the industry. The objective to launch the online ‘Views On Tourism’ LinkedIn group in summer 2009 was hence to offer an efficient and professional network tool.
