The YTB Market Intelligence team were commissioned through LEADER + funding to conduct a Visitor Profiling study, across the six East Riding market towns of Driffield, Pocklington, Market Weighton, Howden, Hornsea and Withernsea, using YTB’s TARGET Tourism Marketing profile system.

This study provided a wealth of information on visitors to these 6 towns and the full reports and results can be found. These reports also show how the TARGET Tourism Marketing system can be used to help with development, marketing and promotional initiatives through understanding who your visitors are, where they come from, and what their interests and hobbies are.

The Market Intelligence unit’s tourism information bulletin designed for tourism professionals who need and want to stay well informed about the developments in the UK tourism market.
