Webinar: Discover Global Tourism Markets International Forecast 2014-2018
On Thursday, February 20, 2014 at 12:00pm (noon) EST, the U.S. Department of Commerce, National Travel and Tourism Office (NTTO) and the Commercial Service Travel & Tourism Team will host a webinar on international travel and tourism markets. The focus of this webinar is NTTO's 5-year Travel Forecast for International Travel developed for 2013-2018.
The Forecast for International Travel is prepared by NTTO staff using economic/demographic/social factors, Commerce historical visitation trends, input from DOC's U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service staff abroad, and other numerous and varied sources. The Forecast is based on a country-level, bottom-up consensus approach by the forecast team. Each team member develops independent country-level estimates for the top 40 visitor origin markets based on numerous quantitative data and qualitative information. These 40 markets account for 95 percent of total international arrivals.
The February 20th webinar will enable participants to get a better understanding of the Forecast for each of the top ten and other select visitor origin markets, including the assumptions behind the forecasts.
