Pécs, a European Capital of Culture for 2010, and generating a series of cultural events,had a unique opportunity to place itself on the map of Europe and to re-align its development strategy.To follow the ECoC project year, a specific research exercise is planned by the writer with a TourismValue Chain Analysis [VCA] of Pécs. This study is a prologue to further research planned and whichaims to describe the meaning of ‘value chain’ in the tourism sector and how multi-stakeholderparticipation can best be coordinated. For this, the author defines the characteristics of the tourismproduct for the purpose of successful marketing, synthesizing the role of tourism managementorganizations in general, and their process of establishment in Hungary, on the basis of an earlier ownresearch (2007). The importance of tourism DMOs is highlighted by the special event relating to Pécsin 2010, prior to which a preparatory phase had helped to formulate a local tourism managementorganization. This local DMO contributed greatly to the success achieved by the ECoC project -which helped to transform the city image from that of an earlier mining-industry town into a culturaltourism destination, although other by-products of the year were less successful.
