DestinationNEXT Futures Study

The DestinationNEXT Futures Study identifies the trends and opportunities that will shape the future of our industry.

The latest update to the DestinationNEXT Futures Study, conducted in 2019, built on the learnings from the 2014 and 2017 Futures Study to determine updated trends and strategies that will keep the thousands of destination organizations around the world thriving and relevant. The purpose of this phase is to research, analyze and present findings which help guide destination leaders as they re-engineer their organizations for future success.

The 2019 Futures Study focuses on three transformational opportunities - destination stewardship, community alignment and digital conversion - to help destination leaders formulate strategic decisions for the future. We believe that destination leaders need to leverage all three of these opportunities collectively to effectively lead their organizations.
