The Destination Better Philosophy for Travel & Tourism
Travelers want to know how you’re taking care of natural resource assets, how you treat your staff and what you’re doing to reinvest in your community. Your destination’s response should be to tell an authentic, data driven and measurable story that appeals to their interests and passions.
We’ll catalog all of the great things you’re already doing based on your visitors’ interests, develop a baseline and create a custom action plan for your destination or property. Let us help capture and communicate the awesome things your company is doing to help you attract visitors who will spend more, stay longer and travel back more frequently.
What We Learned About the Sustainable Traveler
2016 research shows that 60% of US leisure travelers spend 51% more money per trip, bring more travelers, travel more frequently and stay longer – IF your business has what they are seeking.
As a research sponsor, Destination Better played an integral part in the “2016 Role of Sustainability in Travel and Tourism” research, in conjunction with Mandala Research and Sustainable Travel International. As experts in the field of sustainability, we know how to apply the research to attract these travelers to your business.
