Literature relating to the branding of tourism destinations only emerged in earnest during the past decade. Part of a longitudinal investigation of consumer decision sets, this paper reports the first attempt to operationalize the concept of consumer-based brand equity for an emerging destination. The purpose is to provide practical benchmarks, in the context of short break holidays, at the commencement of a new destination brand campaign. While the data does not provide a singular measure of brand equity, the structure of the results provides useful indicators in the destination’s most important market, for which the regional tourism organisation can judge the effectiveness of the brand campaign over time.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
