In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, destination organizations around the world are starting to reach out to their local residents to understand their perspectives on tourism. Are residents concerned about inviting others to visit at a time when health and safety is of paramount importance? Do residents increasingly recognize how valuable tourism is to their local economy? Now is a good time to establish a baseline metric from which destinations can track resident sentiment over time moving forward.
MMGY Travel Intelligence has developed an approach for conducting resident sentiment surveys that we can deploy within a week once approved. Read below to learn more.
The MMGY Travel Intelligence Community Perspectives™ study is designed to assess the sentiment of a destination’s local residents and, more specifically, garner their opinions of the impact tourism has on their community. The core survey probes areas that may impact tourism, including, but not limited to, topics such as:
Tourism’s impact on destination infrastructure
Tourism’s impact on local/regional economic growth
Tourism’s impact on the local ecology/environment
Tourism’s impact on city land use decisions
Tourism’s impact on local traffic, parking and mobility
Tourism’s impact on community ambiance/vibe
Residents’ attitudes toward tourists
Residents’ perceptions (positive/negative) of the local tourism industry
The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted perceptions of tourism
The extent to which the tourism industry is seen as important to COVID-19 recovery
