The Economic Impact of Tourist Information Centres in Wales November, 2012

Research Aim
The Welsh Government commissioned Beaufort Research in association with Houston Economic Consulting to identify and value the additional economic activity occurring at
a given time in a local economy as the result of Tourist Information Centres (TICs).

Research Methodology
The work had two stages, the first stage involved engaging with a representative sample of TIC users across Wales to calculate the value of the TIC input during their
trip. The second stage involved desk research/ economic impact modelling: applying TIC user valuations to the universe of TIC users across Wales to calculate the overall
value of TIC user impact in 2012 by using visitor figures from 2011.
