ABSTRACT

The study aimed at examining the relationship between destination marketing and tourism development in Nigeria.  Specific objectives of the study were to; ascertain the influence of tourism product, price, promotion, place, people, process, and physical evidence on international tourist arrivals in Nigeria. The study adopted the survey research design and made use of secondary data from the World Bank and World Economic Forum. Pearson Correlations was used to test the relationships between the dependent variable – International Tourist Arrivals and the independent variables –7Ps of marketing. The results revealed strong and significant relationships between tourism price competitiveness, tourism product promotion and international tourist arrivals. Other variables such as product, place, people, physical evidence, and process exhibited weak and insignificant relationships with international tourist arrival. This study concluded that destination marketing activities of Nigeria is not adequate and requires urgent attention to enable the country compete favorably with other competing destinations in Africa in attracting international tourists and benefitting from the multiplier effects of tourism development. The study recommended among others that the destination marketing/management organizations, both at the national and regional levels should take marketing seriously by developing holistic marketing programmes to boost awareness of the country’s tourism resources and also work with the private sector businesses in order to attract more international tourists to the country.
