On Thursday, November 20, 2014 at 3:00pm EST (12:00pm PST), the U.S. Department of Commerce, National Travel and Tourism Office (NTTO) and the Commercial Service Travel & Tourism Team will host a webinar on the new forecast for international travel and tourism. The focus of this webinar is NTTO's 6-year Travel Forecast for International Travel developed for 2014-2019.

The Forecast for International Travel is prepared by NTTO staff using economic/demographic/social factors, Commerce historical visitation trends, and other numerous and varied sources. The Forecast is based on a country-level, bottom-up consensus approach for the top 20 visitor origin markets based on numerous quantitative data and qualitative information by the forecast team. These 20 markets account for 88 percent of total international arrivals.

The November 20th webinar will provide participants with a better understanding of the Forecast for each of the top visitor origin markets, including the assumptions behind the forecasts and comparisons to others who also issue international traveler forecasts.
