Title

A Blueprint/Model for Planning and Designing Staged-Authentic Heritage Attractions

Abstract

The purpose of this conceptual study was to develop a concrete blueprint or planning model for designing a heritage tourist attraction. Data were gathered and analyzed in three phases. In phase I, existing and potential supply, demand, and external variables associated with heritage attractions were identified, and a preliminary planning model was developed. Phase II included a refinement of the model based on empirical data collected during site visits to existing heritage attractions in the USA. In Phase III the final blueprint/model was produced. This blueprint/model specified the chronological sequence of activities and events that were required to occur as part of the process of designing and planning a new heritage attraction.
