The proposal is based on the explanation of the different problems that is faced by the Tourism state of Ohio. The investigator has highlighted the absence of some of the most basic marketing elements in the tourism industry and has termed them as the main reasons for the sudden downward movement of the tourism industry of Ohio (Brida, Cortes-Jimenez & Pulina, 2016). A recent report has claimed that there has been a strong sense of dissatisfaction among the tour operators in this part of America as there has been a lack of proper government interference to improve the current state of affairs and attract more and more tourists in the region. The research work will be considering a much bigger viewpoint and will also provide a much bigger scope for future researches on the same topic.
The current situation in the Ohio state is no less than worst. This has happened due to the non-utilization of the different tourism infrastructure, the absence of a proper form of marketing and promotion to promote the vast tourism infrastructure within the state (Ali, Ryu & Hussain, 2016). However the recent problems have been quite disturbing and have caused quite turbulence in the industry. The problems with the growth of Algae in Lake Erie have been causing problems for the tourism industry as because it has stopped the movement of the tourist boats across the waters. According to Ali, Ryu & Hussain (2016) there has been a serious lack of interest from the part of the local self government to improve the current situation.
The current situation can be improved by a proper and efficient form of research that will determine all the necessary problems as well as make a proper form of recommendation to change the situation. The current crisis situation in Ohio and the failure of the authorities to address the situation in a constructive manner have led to the downfall in the number of tourists in the area. The following research seeks to determine the various issues as well as their solutions. The effective outcomes will help the concerned authorities to maintain a well balanced tourism and gain enough revenue for the betterment of the place.
The research work that will be carried out will be having a proper action plan that will help to overcome the necessary barriers present within the industry. The main aim of the research is to create a decentralized tourism planning that will attract private as well as foreign investors who are keen to change the spot and turn it into a hotspot for tourists. The investor should also come into an agreement with the necessary state authorities to maintain the lake and preserve its rich eco system (Taylor, Bogdan & DeVault, 2015). The presence of a considerable amount of financial backing will help the tourism industry get back its actual glory.
A short but compact cost analysis has been provided by the researcher in the following project which will be helpful to determine the amount of estimated costs, elements of cost and the different other expenses that are needed for the proper running and maintenance of the tourism infrastructure of the region and presenting the tourists with the utmost satisfaction (Bullerjahn et al., 2016).
The topic that has been selected is a unique topic as because it has hardly been researched upon earlier. A brief idea about the main issues has been provided in the proposal that will form the basis of further studies. The project will help the state tourism board as well as the parties who are interested to conduct a detailed analysis on the current situation. The report will be helpful for the concerned authorities to chalk out a detailed action plan and revive the tourism prospect of Ohio.
