302: Is AI The Future of Tourism Marketing?

Destination Marketing Podcast

Feb 27 2024 • 40 mins

Stuart Butler, Chief Marketing Officer of Visit Myrtle Beach, joins this episode of the Destination Marketing Podcast to discuss the dynamic nature of destination marketing. Adam and Stuart explore the shift towards owned media strategies and the power of storytelling in engaging audiences. Stuart highlights Myrtle Beach's innovative projects like "Chef Swap" and "Traveling the Spectrum” and talks about why projects such as these are critical in communicating with the consumer in a more personal way. They also discuss the importance of implementing AI into your marketing toolbox and learning to evolve as the technology improves.

"I genuinely fear that if we don't evolve, we could become obsolete in the next world that AI is bringing. We have to be willing to take risks. We have to be brave. It's literally a matter of whether we exist ten years from now is going to be determined on how much innovation and evolution happens over the next ten years." -Stuart Butler
