Destination Queenstown has developed a Nine Month Forward Outlook resource.

This resource indicates the current levels of accommodation occupancy in Queenstown. This is based on collated information from multiple data sets covering commercial and non-commercial accommodation. The Nine Month Forward Outlook resource is weighted predominantly on currently booked forward occupancy rates but also factors in predictive forward booking data. The objective of this resource is to provide a view of potential occupancy levels for the coming nine months in Queenstown and guide decisions and suggestions for clients to come at a time when Queenstown will deliver an optimal visitor experience.

The Nine Month Forward Outlook will be refreshed at the start of every month. Updates will be shared through our Trade and Bureau newsletter communications and posted on the what’s new section of our travel trade website.
