The original objective of this project was to reinvent a way of communicating destinations to specific targets. However, resistance to change by politicians and tourists oriented the research challenge towards organizational and human approaches. The question of levers and resistance to change became central, the hypothesis being that the development of an organizational innovation makes the communication strategies of destinations more effective within Swiss tourism companies. We assessed that the differences in the perception of promotional messages were confronted with a rich and nevertheless self-centered iconographic positioning: Switzerland seen by its own citizens. The scientific objectives of this project attempt to demonstrate that a type of organization managing a co-creation process with all stakeholders can enhance a new communication paradigm by significantly reducing resistances to change within Swiss touristic organizations.
