tourism case study The country of Georgia reimagines tourism

The country of Georgia, with a GDP heavily reliant on tourism, felt the crushing impact of travel restrictions and lockdowns imposed by the pandemic. Mastercard Tourism Insights enabled the Georgian National Tourism Administration to use anonymized and aggregated payment data — pre- to post-trip — to uncover consumers’ behaviors, sentiments and spending habits, allowing better decision-making and planning.

These insights are helping local Georgian hoteliers transform how they interact with and attract customers by better understanding when to expand or encourage traffic and how to market to certain kinds of travelers.
