Investors and Developers of holiday parks and other tourism accommodation properties will look enviously at the data provided in the report by the Instituto Nacionale de Estadistica of Spain on Non-Hotel tourism accommodation occupancy.
The survey provides data on occupancy, rates, source of business and more, with variances to previous statistical periods.
The lack of current data for holiday parks and small tourism accommodation properties in Australia, especially in the regions, is a major barrier to investment and development of tourism accommodation.
Following the predicted end to investment growth in the resources sector in around 2016, Australia will need to support other industries, such as tourism and agriculture.
It will be difficult to attract investment unless the business cases can be backed by authoritative research data.
