This selective directory lists research sources for the hospitality industry, including tourism, hotels, resorts, clubs, spas and restaurants or the food service industry. Our focus is on capital investment projects in the industry and for local economic and commercial real estate development purposes - not for research or services related to consumer interests in travel and leisure or dining and recreation.
Refer also to Retail industry sources, since some of the market research issues for investors overlap. The demographic data sources may also be of interest for location research. Tools such as Search: Americas make it easier to research local sources about specific business locations, while the Search: Global CRE tool can find commercial real estate property listings, brokers, and market reports.
We offer independent professional referrals and research support as executives plan capital investment projects in new business locations. This includes the global business location strategy and site selection process for new facilities such as offices, industrial buildings, distribution centers, etc. for assistance.
