Destination Marketing Association International (DMAI) is the world’s largest and most reliable resource for official destination marketing organizations (DMOs). Their site has educational opportunities, research and MyDMAI – a place to interact with peers.
The information portal for destination marketing professionals is DMOPro.com. Whitepapers, research, industry news, a job bank, and more.
Kansas makes available research and reports through their industry page. Admittedly most of it applies only to Kansas DMOs but the research and reports tab can provide wonderful secondary data.
VisitNebraska.org’s Industry pages have information about the Cornhusker state, tourism events, contacts, but most importantly – reports. Even if you’re in another state, tourism reports are valuable information!
The Sooner State’s tourism office has their industry page full of research and reports. More information to benchmark from?
While not tourism specific, the reports and white papers offered by the CMO Council are very in depth. Go here to browse the many offerings.
