Research is important because it helps us to make decisions about how to develop our work and what activities to undertake. It can also help businesses in the city to make decisions.
We have an ongoing programme of research in the following areas:
Brighton Visitor Survey
This is research commissioned by VisitBrighton into the leisure visitor market. The overall purpose of the study is to enhance VisitBrighton’s understanding of the city’s tourism market and provide the basis for tourism policies.
