DMP Priorities The value of tourism is more oî&#x2020;żen measured in volumes of visitors. Whilst that is an important statistic, it only tells part of the story in terms of its impact on the local economy. One of the purposes of the Destination Management Plan is to deliver the transformational change that can alter perceptions of the resort, convert day visitors into staying visitors, and promote repeat visits. 30
