Virtual Guest Book Visitor Survey Results February 15-May 15, 2012

The Virtual Guest Book Visitor Survey research project began in February of 2012 and will continue until February 2013. The purpose of this survey research is to gain valuable data related to visitor expenditures, day visitor travel patterns, as well as visitor use of social media when planning a visit to the Bluffton/Hilton Head Island area. We have partnered with the University of South Carolina Beaufort Lowcountry and Resort Islands Tourism Institute and local businesses to complete this research endeavor.
