Heritage Tourism Studies

Tourism is one of Alaska’s largest industries, and some communities may have an opportunity to use their past as a means for creating a niche in this market. Heritage tourism is a sustainable business venture in that it helps to sustain culture, preserves the built environment, and fosters economic development. True North can work with communities throughout Alaska to assess the feasibility of engaging in a heritage tourism market. In addition to looking at existing assets and studying local and regional market trends, True North can help launch promotional campaigns to attract new businesses into the community, or build capacity for business development.
