Abstract

This article presents a set of performance indicators to guide the actors to increase their mutual cohesion and facilitate the pursuit of common goals. These indicators were defined based on the authors' expertise in analyzing tourism networks and the results obtained from research in Ouro Preto City, Brazil. In this way, it was possible to perceive the degree of significance of the actors involved in terms of the choice criteria used by visitors to configure their path within the tourist region surveyed and thus strengthen existing relationships.
