Tourism, aviation and hotels
Economic analysis and advice
The Deloitte Access Economics tourism, aviation and hotel practice has a strong track record of providing advisory services that range from strategic policy development to localised hotel market analysis.
Analysis underpinned by leading technical capabilities
Deloitte Access Economics has undertaken a broad and extensive body of work relating to the tourism and travel industry. This includes economic impact assessments (such as our work on proposals for the Barangaroo and the Sydney International Convention and Exhibition Centre precinct); major event evaluations (such as the ICC Cricket World Cup); economic contribution studies (such as the contribution of the Great Barrier Reef and the Sydney Opera House); strategic policy analyses (such as augmenting regional development through initiatives in tourism); economic modelling (such as the economic benefits of increased air access); and industry forecasting (including tourism accommodation and aviation traffic).
The delivery of this diverse range of analysis has been facilitated by our in-depth understanding of tourism markets and our considerable analytical and technical capability. This includes the design and development of industry forecasting models, the construction of purpose built policy analysis models and complex econometric analysis. These tools have enabled Deloitte Access Economics to successfully tackle some of the sector's most complex policy issues and provide our clients with the quantitative analysis to inform their decision making.
Our dedicated practice provides a wide range of services to financiers, property owners, investment fund managers, private investors, developers, operators, government departments, professional and business groups and tourism intermediaries. We offer a full range of services to address key industry issues associated with economic conditions, regulatory change, competition, emerging market sectors, technological advancements, mergers and acquisitions, and changing needs of investors.
Deloitte Access Economics specialises in providing economic modelling and public policy advice to the tourism industry, with extensive experience:
- Forecasting and projections
- Econometric analysis
- Economic impact studies across both government and the private sector.
The Tourism and Hotel Market Outlook
The currency of our market knowledge is maintained beyond our project consulting work through our half-yearly Tourism and Hotel Market Outlook (THMO) publication. THMO provides analysis of recent trends in the global and Australian economy; the implications of these trends for travel and tourism; and presents three-year forecasts for the tourism industry and each capital city hotel market. The only publication of its kind, THMO is widely referenced by industry and broadly quoted in the media.
