Ipsos Affluent Intelligence: The New Experiential Traveler

American affluents’ demand for more authentic, unique and immersive travel continues to grow. In recent years, the focus has shifted from “going places” to “collecting experiences.”

Earlier this month, we hosted a webinar focused on breaking down exactly who these Affluent Experiential travelers are and outlined six of the most appealing travel experiences for affluent audiences — Wellness Seekers, Active Challengers, Sight Seers, Cruisers, Historians and Gourmands.
