Behavioral Economist Publishes White Paper on Pent-Up Demand in the Travel Industry

Denver, CO, February 17, 2021 --( Sandra Thomas-Comenole, behavioral economist and award winning marketing professional, published a white paper entitled, "Are we experiencing pent-up demand in the travel industry?"

Almost a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, and the term "pent-up demand" has become the battle cry of the travel industry. Which leaves one to question whether pent-up demand exists in the travel industry, the factors that affect travel demand through these times and what the release of pent-up demand will look like for travel companies.

This white paper explores the question, "Are we experiencing pent-up demand in the travel industry?" through three data driven studies. The first study lays ground work for understanding and interpreting pent-up demand as it has existed in the past. The two subsequent studies focus on travel destinations that have opened to tourist arrivals and the travel behavior exhibited as a result.
