Abstract / Summary

This exploratory study examines the importance of firm-supply chain relationships
for tourism development. Based upon prior observations, two firms seeking to boost
their tourism offerings and operating in a popular Vietnamese tourist destination
were selected. Semi-structured face-to-face and online interviews were conducted
and complemented by on-site visits, and firm information. Various salient dimensions
emerged from the data analysis. The ‘performance catalyst’ and ‘detectable value
adding’ dimensions underscore the supply chain's benefits, while the ‘discerning relations’
dimension highlights deeper relationships through mutual support, building
trust, or demonstrating care. Conceptually, the study proposes a framework with
associated theoretical and practical implications.
