Tourism Industries (TI) has had an airline advisory board for the In-Flight Survey since 1990. It has been very instrumental in helping TI and our contractor improve this program.

Now, we want to develop a Destination Users Group. The 'kick-off' meeting will be held on March 31st, at the U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th & Constitution Ave., NW, Washington, DC. The meeting will be from 9:30am to 2:00pm, with a break for lunch. At this meeting, we would like to discuss (with destination, airport, attraction, hotel, and other travel industry personnel) forming a group to assist TI in making further improvements to this program.

If you are interested, you can contact Tourism Industries by phone, fax or e-mail. At TI, contact:
