usership to ownership by utilizing pay-per-use and other on-demand services, as
scalable and resilient value-driven outcomes such as pay-per-mile become
The Traditional make, use and dispose economy is supplanted by a circular one in
which resources have a longer useful life, with product and materials recovery
at the end of service life. End to end providers will be replaced by multiple product
and service offerors with unique expertise in the provision of customer-centric
rather than asset-centric services.
especially those with clients located in rural and smaller urban communities,
can increase their capabilities with environmentally viable offerings by
entering into collaborations and partnerships in a multi-sector ecosystem as new companies enter the marketplace to target these opportunities via

Communities that rely on connections and collaborations within and among regions will have access to technologies to transition from a sale to a service culture that features pay-per-use and pay-by-outcome models such as pay-per-mile and power-by-the-hour, creating locally owned enterprises and achieving economies of scale pricing in areas ranging from travel service and destination management, to local and intercity mobility programs connecting large cities with micropolitan areas, and innovative energy savings,water conservation and building automation systemssolutions for buildings typically found on main street and in historic districts. Technology tasks include data sources integration, micro payments, flexible billing and cost-effective self-service customer and partner interfaces.
Linking Manufacturing and Services
Circular and Shared Economies create new value as pay per use models and outcome payments change
the points of reference of projects and transactions as manufacturers repair
and upgrade their products with modular designs; asset management and optimum maintenance
become major capabilities. Equipment re-use, remanufacturing and redeployment
as well as asset harvesting allow manufacturers to offer life cycle management
a collaborative system that delivers seamless customer experiences

The Knowledge Tourism concept brings together local customs, values and traditions with expertise in a variety of disciplines to learn, experience and expand knowledge of the territory in a holistic program that addresses simultaneously:
Community histories that take-into-account the shaping of economic development projects, especially in those towns that are experiencing a long-term downturn;
Geography and historic trade routes that consider river, lake and coastal navigation, highways, wagon trails and rail routes to ensure sustainability and resilience, even where water bodies are no longer navigable, or a source of water to nearby communities, and rail heads have been dismissed;
Places transitioning from traditional industrial and commercial activities to technologically innovative ones; in some instances, they are also able to re-establish their traditional economic activities with a successful application of the so-called knowledge economy and, in the process, becoming once again competitive in the world marketplace.
Cultural Tourism is Best Experienced in the Company of Local Friends and Experts
Tourism is one of the largest industries in the world economy; right up there with real estate, automobiles and financial services. It is also highly segmented: business travel, meetings, cruises, family vacations, food and wine travel, responsible, sustainable, ethical, and more.
Cultural Tourism assumes uniquely local dimensions wherever you go; the activities that you, the local or global visitor, select and, irrespective of the length of your stay, are unique of the community you are visiting and rooted into the local economy, culture and traditions.
How to Travel Culturally! is a very much function of the destination you choose. Your visit to a country, region or town is personalized as a function of your interests and preferences; many destinations are known for the negative effects travel has on the local culture and environment, especially during certain periods of the year.
Knowledge Tourism Means Doing and Going Where the Locals Go
Environment and Community the Importance to a community of environmental issues and practices like energy efficiency and water conservation cannot be underestimated, especially if tourism is an important contributor to the local economy.
Highly Educated Travelers family and group vacationers select destinations primarily on-the-basis of cultural, gastronomic, wellness and similar preferences; increasingly, they expect that the places they visit reflect their values on key issues like recycling practices, air and water quality, as well as the availability and quality of public transit. The Logistics of Travel are defined as:
Anchoring stays in strategic locations along planned trip routes conveniently located to local points of interest and minimizing the number of accommodation changes; hence, fewer times packing and unpacking, thus lowering accommodations and transport costs in
Hub and Spoke Locations smaller towns and rural communities with regional rail, bus, van, car and air connections strategically located within 200 or less miles of larger metropolitan areas
Sightseeing, meals and other planned events in a hub and spoke fashion, saving time and money, but also an opportunity to slow down and enjoy the places and the people you are visiting
Mode of Transport selections are a function of number of persons, trip length as well as the time of year you are traveling. Rationalizing travel movements, ascertaining transport mode(s) availability and costs are the key to a successful trip planning.
Best Planned & Managed by Those with Knowledge of Your Community and the Locations You Visit
Business Travelers require efficient plans to meet trip objectives. This may entail visiting several locations in a compressed period-of-time to seek investment and sales opportunities. They look to Main Streets shopping and entertainment venues, Historic Districts and other community neighborhoods that have or plan to put in place energy savings measures as well as other environmental safeguards that help reduce the cost of doing business in that local area.
A Successful Destination is defined as one that develops projects built around existing facilities that need upgrading and/or expansion to manage tourism flows and local production capabilities to enhance community offerings.
