Take the University of Tennessee/Appalachian Research Commission Tourism Survey

The Appalachian Research Commission (ARC) and the University of Tennessee are currently conducting a region-wide study of Appalachian tourism. The study, to be completed early next year, is one of the largest research projects ever conducted on the expanding Appalachian industry. Results from the survey will help tourism officials and vendors improve visitor experiences. They will also help ARC determine new priorities and evaluation methods. As part of this study, the research team has developed a survey for visitors to the Appalachian Region. The survey takes about five minutes to complete and includes questions related to travel preferences, travel planning, and regional perceptions. Please help the effort by taking the survey at
