The use of information and communication technologies within the framework of destination marketing causes a change in the production and consumption of cultural services. The cultural resources of Alpine destinations demonstrate an advantage for both tourists and inhabitants through destination management systems. The case of the Tyrolean destination and its destination management system, TIScover, shows what kinds of cultural promotions are prominent among Internet users and the type of influence the Internet has on the selection of these offers. The Internet already plays an important role in marketing. In the context of destination management systems, special offers are enhanced, which are not effective in traditional destination marketing channels due to resource shortages.
