Research on the Development and Supply of Accommodation Enterprises in the Scope of Accessible Tourism in the Region of Antalya
Keywords:disability, disabled people, accessible tourism, tourism supply, accommodation enterprises
When we consider that 15 percent of the people in the world are disabled, it becomes easy to see why disabled individuals should form an important subject of attention for the tourism industry. In order to obtain a profitable share of the market formed by disabled tourists, it is necessary that the tourism sector analyze the resources available to supply access to tourism to disabled customer.
The purpose of this research is to determine the tendencies and expectations of parties involved in the supply side of tourism, in order to see how accessibility for disabled people visiting tourism facilities can be provided with both honor and equality, and in a fashion that will encourage an increase in their utilization level. The ultimate goal is for Turkey and Antalya to enjoy a greater share of the disabled tourism segment by developing proposals that will satisfy the expectations of all stakeholders.
