In 2004 tourism in Austria contributed 6.4 % of the nations GDP equivalent to €15.26B. This number however fails to capture the complexity of this economic sector.

For these reasons the Austrian Tourist Agency initiated a series of scenario workshops and processes to explore plausible future developments.
