1 2015 U.S. TOURISM QUALITY PERFORMANCE REPORT RESONANCE REPORT

2 RESONANCE CONSULTANCY CREATES DEVELOPMENT STRATEGIES, PLANS, AND BRANDS THAT SHAPE THE FUTURE OF PLACES AROUND THE WORLD. Our team has advised developers, destinations, communities, cities and governments in more than 70 countries. We provide leading public and private sector organizations with research, visioning, strategic planning, development strategy, and brand strategy to help realize the full potential of developments, destinations and communities. The 2015 U.S. Tourism Quality Performance Report ranks large, medium and small destinations from a unique and increasingly important supply side perspective, an overview of which is provided here. Individual city reports with details per category and customized competitive benchmarking with 10 key competing destinations are available for purchase at:

3 INTRODUCTION Resonance Consultancy has undertaken Destination Assessments and Development Strategies for a wide range of destinations, cities, states and countries. Through our work, we ve learned that traditional performance indicators economic output, spending and visitors don t tell destinations and their tourism and economic development agencies the whole story. In our experience, Destination Marketing Organizations focus primarily on growing visitor numbers, but there is relatively scant attention paid to the product development and programming required to maintain and improve the quality of the visitor experience. As a growing number of visitors base their judgment about destinations on overall experiential quality rather than just the number of must-see attractions, growth in demand must be matched by expansion and improvement in supply to ensure the viability and sustainability of a destination s tourism industry over the long term. To solve this problem, Resonance Consultancy has analyzed social media channels from increasingly influential websites such as Trip Advisor and Yelp. We ve identified how many quality 1 experiences cities offer from one product and experience category to the next as rated by locals and visitors themselves. With more than 270 million combined reviews, these sites are both powerful marketing channels for destinations, and can also provide new insight and intelligence into the experiential quality and differentiating characteristics of destinations themselves. We think you ll find that this approach to examining the quality of destinations from the visitors point of view is both an effective and efficient method to measure supply side performance from one destination to the next and a valuable tool to better understand the competitive advantages and weaknesses of your destination. From a demand side perspective, it s generally straightforward to assess a destination s performance using standardized measures of visitor traffic, spending or hotel occupancy rates. But when it comes to evaluating the supply side of a destination, no standardized measures exist to benchmark the experiential quality of one destination to the next. Traditional visitor intercept surveys provide destinations with insight into what visitors find appealing or lacking, but there is no efficient or standardized way to compare and benchmark these results with those of other destinations. 1 Quality Experiences are those with an overall rating of very good or excellent

4 METHODOLOGY The 2015 U.S. Tourism Quality Performance Report measures tourism s supply-side performance and competitiveness in 121 cities across the United States based on both absolute and indexed scales: the absolute scale measures the total number of quality 1 experiences; the indexed scale evaluates performance in terms of how many quality 1 experiences are delivered per visitor (i.e. the number of quality experiences per 100,000 visitors). To formulate visitor estimates for each destination and create the indexed scoring, we utilized a combination of data from TNS Global s 2014 visitor survey for domestic visitor counts and the U.S. Department of Commerce National Travel and Tourism Office Air Travelers Survey for international counts to create estimates for total visitors to each destination. Resonance selected destinations for this report based on the availability of adequate data from these two sources. The rankings that follow are based on an analysis of the number of products or experiences rated as very good or excellent in 17 different areas. We have grouped them into six core categories: 1. Culture The arts and culture in a city Museums (Trip Advisor) Theaters & Concerts (Trip Advisor) Arts & Entertainment (Yelp) 2. Entertainment Fun attractions and experiences Shopping (Yelp) Nightlife (Yelp) Amusement Parks (Trip Advisor) Zoos & Aquariums (Trip Advisor) Casinos & Gambling (Trip Advisor) Fun & Games (Trip Advisor) 3. Sightseeing The natural and built environment of a city Sights & Landmarks (Trip Advisor) Nature & Parks (Trip Advisor) Sightseeing Tours (Trip Advisor) 4. Sports & Adventure A destination s outdoor activities and adventures Outdoor Activities (Trip Advisor) Boat Tours & Water Sports (Trip Advisor) 5. Culinary The food experiences in a destination Food & Drink (Trip Advisor) Restaurants (Yelp) 6. Lodging Accommodations in a city Hotels (Trip Advisor) 1 Quality Experiences are those with an overall rating of very good or excellent

5 METHODOLOGY (CONT D) Finally, in order to benchmark similar-sized cities against one another, destinations have been segmented into three groups based on their estimated visitor traffic: Large destinations That attract more than 10 million visitors per year Medium destinations That total between 4-10 million visitors Small destinations That attract fewer than 4 million visitors annually
