Abstract:
Kumasi needs to position itself strategically as a cultural destination, communicate its attributes more effectively to tourists already in Ghana and differentiate itself from other cities and attractions. Position should entail marketing a larger cultural region than just Kumasi. Several positioning statements can transmit Kumasi’s new marketing strategy: Kumasi - Heart of the Kingdom of Ashanti, Ashanti - The Hidden Kingdom, Kumasi - Come and See! Kumasi is well placed to capitalize on the growth of tourism in Ghana due to its status as a cultural capital. The financial impact of tourism growth is potentially significant for the city and its surrounding districts. The creation of the Ashanti Region Marketing Corporation is fundamental to proper coordination among stakeholders.
