Conference Board of Canada: Tourism research

The Conference Board of Canada has recently released some new publications, including one that may be of interest to tourism and hospitality students and faculty.

Travel Exclusive: Key Trends for the Travel Industry September-October 2010 is a “bi-monthly publication from the Canadian Tourism Research Institute [that] features articles that outline key trends for the travel industry.” Highlights include:

  • Of the organizations polled, the majority (60 per cent) expect their corporate travel expenditures to increase next year.
  • Airfares to the United States are expected to climb 2.3 per cent.
  • Sixteen per cent of Canadians polled were still unsure about their vacation plans for this winter.
  • Only 6 per cent of domestic travellers said they intended to use a travel agent. – Conference Board of Canada
