Do you want to create new experiences?

Sometimes a community has very little to offer the visitor, and few prospects for the retail investor. If the community wants to add tourism to its economic development arsenal, then new products and services often need to be added. GDS can help identify a brand and its supportive products and services that will attract visitors and retail investors alike. Brands require all manner of products and services. Most important of these are the "branded" attractions, activities and experiences that lure visitors to the destination. Other attractions and amenities help keep the visitor in the destination, spending more time and money.

The positive additional effect of developing a destination brand is the opportunity to make the destination more attractive to local residents. A reinvigorated branded downtown, for example, with unique shops, trendy restaurants, and engaging nightlife, provides locals as well as visitors places of interest in which to spend their time and money.
