It's that time of year again when we release our latest Economic Impact Research, which will forecast Travel & Tourism's contributions for 2015 and the next 10 years. We'll be releasing sneak peeks into specific country data over on Twitter (@WTTC) today, and tomorrow we'll launch our new and more powerful Data Gateway, which will allow users to search through the data using multiple indicators and will do so in a more visual format.
