In an ever shrinking and integrating world, tourism has become one of the fastest growing industries worldwide and has experienced exceptional growth over the past decades. The Baltic Sea region is no exception. From 2014 to 2016, the area recorded an increase of 10.4% in arrivals and respectively 8.9% in overnight stays which amounts to a total of 88 million arrivals and 227 million overnight stays in 2016. This makes the Baltic Sea region entering an increasing global competition. To remain competitive, internationalization strategies need to be realigned to benefit from the positive effects and minimize the negative implications of growing tourism flows.
