As much as 10% of European economic activity depends on tourism so the complete loss of this year’s season is a price no government can easily afford https://t.co/ZNC76xpC9X https://t.co/8GTkIX5vLd

Overview: 19 best virtual museum tours in the world. But, my view an "on-line collection" & a "360 view" are not virtual museum tours. I had a look at the Frida Kahlo Museum, it's merely a set of 360 images. I would happily pay for an online guided tour. https://t.co/BUs3Bz7yyf

Pre-selling tickets online for attractions preserves pocket power, preserves the decision to visit and allows attractions to manage capacity. Yet online bookings have low take up in SA. How do we change this? By adding value to the visitor.

Attractions Benchmark Survey Report 2021

I am delighted to present to you the first benchmark study of visitor attractions in South Africa. Information and data are key and it has been a great frustration for the attractions industry that we have had no data available relevant to our specific sector in South Africa. 
The current survey is the first benchmark attraction survey of its kind. The initial phase focused on attractions in South Africa and data was collected for 2019 and 2020. Data for 2019 is of particular importance as it will serve as a pre-pandemic benchmark to track recovery.
