Destination-marketing organizations (DMO, i.e. state tourism offices or convention and visitors’ bureaus), interested in knowing how visitors to their destination differ from “average” travelers to the U.S., can compare the results of their custom run to the national report. Are visitors demographically different (younger/older, do they spend more), what activities do they engage in, do they rent automobiles, etc.?

The DMO might consider structuring their custom report format to parallel, use the same column headings as, the national level report. For example, the following 12 columns (banners) could be run for a specific destination and at the national level: (1) all overseas to your state or city, (2) from the UK, (3) UK leisure/VFR, (4) from Japan, (5) Japan leisure/VFR, (6) Japan package travelers, (7) from Germany, (8) from France, (9) all hotel/motel travelers, (10) travelers renting a car, (11) travelers visiting historical places, and (12) travelers going to an amusement/theme park. A comparative analysis would enable a D.M.O. to analyze what is unique about its destination, or how this market could be approached differently since its travelers differ from the national average.

NTTO offers the 12-column banner national level data, in Excel, mirroring your destination banner, for $3,780.00 after purchase of a custom report for your destination.
