A national travel industry organization engaged MOST Programming to help quantify and provide insight into the economic impact of changes in tourism at the national, state or city level.
While the client has extensive knowledge and expertise in travel industry that, both nationally and locally, have a considerable impact on the economy, there was not proper visibility into the details of that impact or measurable trends. The client hoped to quantify the impact and observe correlations between travel expenditures and taxes or public jobs created.
Working closely with the organization, MOST Programming developed a unique calculator to analyze and quantify the impact of various tourism-related factors on the economy at the state, city and whole country. The impact is measured in part by tax changes and jobs created or lost, even as granularly as isolating jobs in law enforcement, fire fighting, and teaching.
The custom calculator is able to accurately predict economic changes based on fluctuations in travel expenditures and tourism, allowing travel industry professionals and policymakers to clearly understand and demonstrate the economic effect of certain industry-related decisions.
