Insights, research, analysis and benchmarking form a critical part of the capability and the potential of the City Destinations Alliance.

By providing data, cities can benchmark themselves in terms of their economic, environmental, and social performance in tourism. In CityDNA’s Research & Insights Knowledge Group, we collect information on important key performance indicators which we analyze and share in forms of regular reports and electronically via the tourism management information system TourMIS.

For the 50% of our members who do not have their own research departments, City Destinations Alliance can provide a unique and essential source of information.
