Market Research

Introduction

Our Market Research (i.e. research exercise/activity, data collection) helps governments, destinations, associations, and education providers better understand destinations and source markets (legislation, policies, performance, size, segments, structure, benchmarking, demand levels, etc.).

It also allows our customers to analyse their target audience (preferences, booking channels, socioeconomic impact, segmentation, preferred modes of engagement, etc.).

 Conducting Market Research can help your (or your members’) position and raise your (their) market profile within the broader industry or media.

 Our Market Research is a bespoke service with no dependency on data availability. It includes secondary and primary in-field data collection such as surveys, mystery shopping, and other such activities that are further analysed and transformed into useful information.
