    Destination organizations have begun to embrace the concept that the local resident is the industry’s most important customer – a vital partner in the development and prosperity of this industry. As such, resident sentiment has become the new “essential KPI.” This session will make available for the first time, the results from the 2021 National Resident Sentiment Study Towards Tourism for both Canada and the United States.

    Destination organizations have begun to embrace the concept that the local resident is the industry’s most important customer – a vital partner in the development and prosperity of this industry. As such, resident sentiment has become the new “essential KPI.” The resident will be the partner at the table to advocate for funding and building new tourism product, the trusted source of important word of mouth to friends and relatives, and the beneficiary of the financial gains from this vital economic engine. This session will make available for the first time, the results from the 2021 National Resident Sentiment Study Towards Tourism for both Canada and the United States.

    Marlene Bushouse

    Senior Sales Administrator

    Experience Grand Rapids

    Marlene describes her job as “assisting the sales team in the obtainment of our yearly room night goal.” What she fails to mention is the endless litany of tasks she undertakes to help make that happen.

    She’s a researcher and a proofreader and a scheduler and a designer and a negotiator and a diplomat and a travel agent. (And that’s just before noon on Monday.) If sales is involved, so is Marlene – you just may not know it, because she does it behind the scenes, unobtrusively. Which is why, in a nod to the Wizard of Oz, we’ve dubbed her “the woman behind the curtain.”
