Abstract

The tradition of tourism businesses and regional tourism industries is to measure their value to the host community by jobs, wages and tax revenues even though every member of that community is impacted on a daily basis though a broad variety of impacts. This paper demonstrates a conceptual approach for measuring the relative importance of the major dimensions of community quality of life that can be influenced by the tourism industry in order to calculate an indication of overall impact on the well being of community residents. Furthermore, we have formulated a conjoint model that values this overall performance in monetary units. A conjoint model for estimating importance is successfully implemented using samples of college students and tourism industry professionals in the US and Cyprus. A monetary version of Triple Bottom Line impacts is calculated for the impacts of a specific hypothetical tourism business development.
