Visitor Demand Mapping Report 

Destination Queenstown have created a Visitor Demand Mapping report, first published on 14 May 2020. The paper covers a range of scenarios on when visitor demand is likely to start, set and scale for the Queenstown Lakes District over the next four years. It aims to identify timelines for optimistic and conservative scenarios regarding the return of demand for tourism products within the Queenstown Lakes District. The updates cover recent developments that impact visitation to Queenstown in New Zealand and in off-shore markets in the longer term.

On the 28 January this report was consolidated into the Visitor Demand Mapping resource which covers short term and long term visitation.
