Arrivalist Announces Most Visited Places State by State

Travel Technology Company Introduces Game-Changing New Approach to Measuring Travel and Traffic at Colorado Governor's Tourism Conference

USA, New York, New York. November 19, 2018

Travel technology company, Arrivalist, is turning its data into the most precise visitation awards the industry has ever seen. On October 30, Arrivalist announced the first "ArrivaLIST of Most Visited Places Award" at the Colorado Governor's Tourism Conference, highlighting the 11 most visited locations across six categories. Arrivalist will continue to share its data-based awards one state at a time, recently honoring the Virginian travel industry on November 12, 2018 at the VA-1 Tourism Summit.

The first and only travel location data company of its kind, Arrivalist constantly gathers and measures data from 120 million consumers with location-enabled devices to garner the most precise, comprehensive visitation data ever reported. Their technology allows clients to measure the movement of mobile computing devices to their destination or business post-media exposure - even comparing media-exposed consumers to a dynamic control group, creating critical new measure of incremental visitation.

"At Arrivalist, we take pride in turning large complex datasets into profound new perspectives for destinations, hotels, resorts and attractions," said Cree Lawson, CEO of Arrivalist. "The ArrivaLIST of Most Visited Places creates new, real-world, data driven for consumers, for clients and the tourism industry as a whole. We're thrilled to work with the Colorado Tourism Office to present the first ArrivaLIST rankings and ArrivaLIST rewards."

Historically, visitor information relied on self-reporting, and marketers were only getting a fraction of data they need to accurately understand visitation behavior. Arrivalist is using concrete data to report actual foot-traffic captured in real time.

The Colorado recipients of the "ArrivaLIST of Most Visited Places Award" across all categories are as follows:

  • Most Visited Attraction: The Million Dollar Highway
  • Most Visited Casino: Lady Luck Casino
  • Most Visited Large Hotel & Resort: Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center
  • Most Visited Luxury Hotel: The Broadmoor
  • Most Visited Natural Attraction & Park: Rocky Mountain National Park
  • Most Visited Ski Resort: Breckenridge Ski Resort

Arrivalist's technology is paving a way for more accurate and insightful information that can be used to make informed choices regarding tourism across the globe. The company's methodology measures visitors traveling more than 50 miles to a given location, removing the bias of residential traffic. Additionally, Arrivalist only captures unique visitors at each attraction once per trip, allowing the company to offer clients the most precise visitation behavior.

"We are thrilled to take our unique tech capabilities in the travel and tourism space and apply them to the ArrivalLIST of Most Visited Places, empowering not only tourism boards and industry partners, but also anyone who wants to understand consumer visitation patterns," said Matt Clement, vice president of marketing and business development at Arrivalist. "Our work has always been about providing unbiased intelligence into consumer behavior, and the ArrivalLIST is one of the many evolutions of our company that seeks to empower our clients' strategic planning."

Today more than 40 U.S. state and over 130 destination and travel marketers are leveraging Arrivalist's findings, empowering clients to make informed choices, and finally making self-reported data obsolete.

Social Media: Social Listening Tools

The reach and influence of social media is staggering. Nearly 3 billion people use social media daily, posting a range of messages, selfies, images, and everything in-between. According to HubSpot, almost 4 million posts are uploaded to the major social networks every single minute! That's an astounding amount of content and it is crucial for hotels to skillfully use social media in order to effectively compete. From establishing a suitable brand identity and voice to creating content across all the major networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.), the goal is to actively engage consumers and to eventually convert them to customers. Some hotels are initiating online contests as a way to attract new customers, while others are rewarding customers with discounts who subscribe to the their email lists or follow their social media pages. Another recent strategy is to employ social media listening tools that track what people are posting online about their businesses. These tools allow hotels to monitor - or listen to - what's being said about a brand across the entire social web, and this can prove to be very valuable, unfiltered information. Social listening permits hotels to be aware of people's opinions about their business, industry or competitors, and some of these tools even listen beyond social media platforms. They also monitor publicly available information on blogs, forums, news outlets and websites. Some listening tools are more focused on gathering and analyzing data, while others offer more engagement-oriented features, which allow hotels to interact with people right from the platform. Often the information that is gleaned from these listening tools ends up being the most authentic, unbiased insights a business can get. The February Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to successfully integrate social media strategies into their operations.
