What size area can be accredited?
It is up to you to define your own area, but it needs to be small enough that it can be called a "capital" (although it does not need to be the actual governmental capital of the area). Think about how you would promote your destination's accreditation to travelers. Consumers need a focus point. An entire country or an entire state or province, are probably too large of an area, but a city, metropolitan area, or small region (such as a wine region) is perfect. Think about a gateway city as a magnet and conduit to other regions. Neighboring areas can apply together, and areas can cross country borders, if there is a good reason (for example, linguistic, cultural, culinary or historical similarities).
