Longwoods International

Longwoods InternationalLongwoods International, a leading tourism market research firm and longtime Destinations International partner, is enhancing its existing partnership with the Association by offering exclusive pricing to new and existing customers for their landmark studies – Travel USA®, Halo Effect, and Resident Sentiment Study.  

Travel USA is the largest ongoing annual survey of American travelers with a sample size of more than 330,000 trips in 2015.  This will provide Destinations International members with a complete visitor profile for their city or region. Halo Effect measures, for the first time, the impact of tourism marketing and visitation on a destination’s image beyond tourism. The data included in this study builds off the research presented by Longwoods’ representatives at Destinations International’s 2015 Annual Convention. The Resident Sentiment Study benchmarks your own destination against the first-ever national benchmark survey of American resident towards tourism. Longwoods International will contribute a portion of the proceeds of new business developed through this program to the Destinations International Foundation, to help assess and meet the needs of destinations and the broader travel and tourism industry.

The Experience Institute

The Experience Dedicated Destination (EDD) program helps destinations engage and activate their stakeholder communities to drive strong destination brands and, thus, organization relevancy.

EDD enables destination stakeholders to hold facilitated strategic conversations which prioritize resources and take action on things that matter to visitors and locals. The EDD framework helps shape an experience strategy through the industry’s only visitor experience standards, developed by TEI. This additional resource provides destinations with quality research, year-over-year trendlines, and valuable experience insight.
