“Nobody runs in the escalators in Gothenburg” : A study about how visitors perceive Gothenburg (English)
Abstract [en]

In today’s modern society people tend to travel more due to the globalization and the fact that people are spending more money. As a result of the increasing competition within the field of tourism it has become even more important for destinations to create a clear profile and a target group when marketing destinations; it is extremely essential to have a positive image, which is genuine and perceived by visitors. This essay is written to explore how tourists experience Gothenburg as a tourist destination and how marketing is creating the city image. The study is qualitative and consists of interviews with visitors of Gothenburg to see how they perceived the city. Further one interview is performed with the communication manager of Göteborg & Co to explore how they want to be perceived by tourists. The entire essay is written in Swedish. The result of the essay shows that the image does reflect how the city wants to be perceived, but Gothenburg needs to better their marketing to gain more tourists in the future.

Abstract [sv]

Idag reser jordens befolkning allt mer, konkurrensen är hård och det krävs omfattande strategier som destinationsmarknadsförare för att attrahera turister. Flera studier har gjorts i huruvida destinationer skall differentiera sig på en överbelastad marknad, forskare syftar till att turistattraktioner och unika miljöer är en bidragande faktor till ökat inflöde av turister.I denna uppsats studeras Göteborg som turistdestination, studien utformas av kvalitativa intervjuer med respondenter som under de senaste två åren besökt och turistat i Göteborg. De frågor som ställdes utformades för att få inblick i hur staden uppfattas av turister och vad som påverkar deras imagebildande av Göteborg som turistdestination. Ytterligare intervju gjordes med Göteborg & Co’s press- och kommunikationschef Stefan Gadd för att få förståelse i hur de arbetar för att skapa positiva och genuina bilder av Göteborg. Utgångspunkten för studien var att få svar på om Göteborgs identitet stämmer överens med den image som besökaren uppfattar. Studiens resultat visade på att imagen överensstämde med hur Göteborg önskar bli uppfattade, men att staden bör förbättra sin marknadsföring för att attrahera mer turister i framtiden.
