Funding Futures is a major study of the recovery and future of tourism and DMO funding coming out of the COVID-19 crisis. The project analyzed 115 North American cities, all 50 U.S. states and 10 Canadian provinces to summarize the current situation, the impact of the COVID-19 crisis, and the outlook for recovery. The study also introduces and explores ten alternative funding options for DMOs to be “built back better” – options for more balanced, resilient and sustainable funding.
In this webinar, John Lambeth of Civitas and Chris Adams of Miles Partnership will review and discuss the funding options "Building Reserves" and "Short-Term Rental Revenue" in more detail. They will be joined by an expert panel including Adam Burke of Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board, Tyler Fischer of LodgingRev and Daniel Leifeld of Key Data.
This research project is undertaken by Miles Partnership, Civitas Advisors and Tourism Economics with most of the time and effort contributed pro-bono to allow all DMOs to access the report free of charge. Some valuable funding was provided by the U.S. Travel Association Destination Council and the Destination Marketing Association of Canada. Important support was also provided by Destination Analysts with additional in-kind assistance from Destinations International.
