A Different View runs survey on COVID-19 and the attractions industry

The British Museum is just on of many in the attractions industry to close due to the coronavirus pandemic

A Different View, the global visitor experience consultant, has designed a survey to find out how attractions professionals are feeling about the COVID-19 crisis.

A Different View is pleased to announce that it is running a COVID-19 Mindset survey each month. The short survey will ask people in the attractions industry how the coronavirus pandemic has affected their business, what steps they have been taking as a result, and how anxious the situation is making them feel.

This research intends to capture the current mindset of organisations, freelancers, suppliers and more, who work in the visitor attractions industry. It covers all areas, from zoos and theme parks to museums and the arts.

Helping to understand the situation

A Different View is conducting this research in order to get an idea of the bigger picture and to find out more about the impact on various sectors. The survey will take place each month, and attractions professionals will be able to check the results to see what is happening in their own sector and compare it with other sectors and regions.

The survey is short and will not take much time to complete, with the results being made freely available. To fill it in, please click here.

The impact of COVID-19

So far, it is clear that the impact on the attractions sector will be significant and widespread. Theme parks, FECs, museums, zoos and more have been forced to close their doors to prevent the spread of the virus and protect their communities.

While it is still unclear how long the shutdown will last, many countries are looking to China, where attractions are beginning to open with extra safety precautions in place. Meanwhile, a few attractions in Europe are also starting to open to the public again, such as some museums in Germany and Kolmården Zoo in Sweden.
