Visitor Insight is made up of a number of important data sources: the number of hotel nights fromNational Statistical Bureau, the incoming foreign passengers at Schiphol from Royal Schiphol Group, and the number of visits to the most important museums/attractions and theaters in Amsterdam, periodically supplied by the institutions themselves. amsterdam&partners processes the data, is dependant on the delivery time of the underlying sources/partners. This means that not all data is equally up-to-date and complete.

For whom is Visitor Insight made?
For anyone who wants to stay informed about the visitor economy in Amsterdam. For decision-makers within the tourism sector, working for private or public organizations who want to stay informed about the situation of current visits to the city.

Methodology
The hotel statistics relate to the more than 500 hotels in Amsterdam, collected and processed by National Bureau of Statistics of the  Netherlands. This data is delivered as a standard 2-3 months after the relevant period.

The visitors to the I amsterdam Store and the number of activated I amsterdam cards are tracked and entered by employees of amsterdam&partners. The number of unique visitors to the website is obtained via Google analytics.

The visitor figures of Amsterdam's museums, attractions and theatres are based on visitor numbers that the more than 36 museums, 13 attractions and 10 theatres enter themselves in Visitor Insight. The institutions themselves supply the data in the tool and these are delivered one month after the end of the relevant period.
