Joseph Pine & James H. Gilmore, 1999, Harvard).
  • The application will at the same time be initiated in the field of e-destination e-tourism and combined with e-business, and when fully deployed will aim at forms of e-business B2B, B2C, C2B and B2G either self-determined or in combination

  • Transferability to businesses (Build active based clusters)
  • Use of the new DEMS through mobile application for developing and promoting individual focused routes within the virtual destination and ability to create Dynamic Packaging Systems in the e-Tourism Information System.
  • Free hosting and business promotion within the new route and their internationalization
