Attracting Smart, Responsible Travelers to Your Destination

Your industry is hurting and crying out for you to start marketing to bring visitors back. But your residents and government officials aren’t ready to welcome tourists back – and the media’s constant parade of stories showing mask-related fistfights and large groups flaunting social distancing measures isn’t helping your cause. Traditionally, destinations have targeted against attributes like HHI, interest-based personas and market origins, so, how do you a) target and recruit responsible travelers through your media strategy, and b) convince your residents and government stakeholders you’re not going to introduce the “second wave” of infections to your community? In this session, learn how you can work with programmatic and publisher partners to introduce new profile and targeting strategies for your media to ensure you’re bringing in the “right” visitors to your community, and how to convince skeptics that you’re not secretly trying to create herd immunity in your community.
