Forecasts from AttractionPros


Trends to Anticipate in 2022

There is a lot to look forward to in the new year.  Accelerated adoption of technology, increasing pent-up demand from the public to visit attractions, and enhanced experiences that embrace creative talent all fuel optimism for the future.  As we begin 2022, we put out a request for submissions for what to be on the lookout for to ensure a successful year.  Forecasts ranged from cautious to optimistic, and how businesses in the attractions industry should approach various initiatives including business strategy, technology, staffing & employment, guest experience, and social responsibility, all while remaining optimistic that the industry’s rebound from the pandemic will continue to strengthen.
