Abstract

Public-private Destination Management Organizations are considered to be one of the best destination management formulas to guarantee the sustainable and competitive development of tourism. Furthermore, they give greater weight to the private sector in decision-making, since the latter is part of the destination management structure. These organizations are characterized, in theory, by lesser dependence on the public sector in budgetary terms, which is deemed to alleviate the finance and funding problem faced by destination management. Hence, it is interesting to know which of the world’s biggest city-destinations manage tourism through a public-private Destination Management Organization and to examine the legal, organizational, functional and financial structure of such entities, thus assessing their suitability in accordance with the provisions of scientific literature. Ascertaining the views of these entities themselves about different sources of finance and public-private collaboration can help us to understand the results obtained.
