The purpose of this study was to examine the history of pilgrimage tourism and its marketability to a modern consumer. It was also to examine the role of government in promoting tourism activities. Through a case study on el Camino de Santiago and the Xunta de Galicia, I discovered a market gap and created a communications strategy aimed towards closing the gap and smoothing demand fluctuation. Target market research indicated consumer interest and supported the marketing strategy. The study was conducted through historical, statistical, ethnographic, and psychographic research and analysis. The major findings of this study were that the American consumer is not as religiously motivated to travel as their European counterparts. However, they find many other aspects of the pilgrimage experience very appealing. Their lack of interest in the religious aspect of travel experiences segments them into a group that can potentially help flatten demand fluctuation amid Holy Years along el Camino de Santiago. The modernization of the pilgrimage contributes to its movement away from pious tourism towards secular tourism and offers an opportunity for an untapped market to support pilgrimage tourism economies.

The following honors thesis analyzes the history of advertising in the state of Arizona since the late 19th century and its overall impact on economic development. Advertising is defined as the action of calling something to the attention of the public, especially by paid announcements; and economic development is defined as the process whereby simple economies are transformed into modern industrial economies. This paper will analyze the influence of key people, events, locations, and publications on consumer behavior and discuss how they contributed to tourism in the state and, subsequently, economic growth. By speaking to experts on Arizona history, economic development and tourism as well as analyzing a variety of historical multimedia, I will discuss how advertising methods evolved over time and how they contributed to increased interest and growth within the state.
