ASTA's Research Program

ASTA has been a reliable source of research on the travel agency industry for many decades.  We collect, collate and analyze data that is not available anywhere else on agency operations from agency model to revenue sources.  Our data can be used to pinpoint agency trends, compare and contrast agency operations, and develop marketing tactics.
