This Week in Social Distancing: The Latest Research on the Impact of COVID-19
This Week in Social Distancing - July 9, 2020
Thursday, July 9, 2020 11AM PT

This week, Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority (CRVA), Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau (GBCVB), and Travel Portland join us as we look at how tourist destinations can use mobile data to start their Recovery planning efforts.

In this week’s webinar, we provide an update on how consumer behavior nationwide has shifted since reopening and we’ll showcase how the metrics available via COVID-19 Recovery Insights can be used to analyze actual examples of destinations that have been impacted differently from the pandemic.

Our research is powered by de-identified & aggregated location insights from hundreds of millions of devices that have opted into sharing their location data.

For more information on our COVID-19 Researcher’s Toolkit, including a Research Data Directory, Mobile Location Data Tutorials, and a Research Blog, please visit https://ubermedia.com/covid19/

Thank You & Stay Safe
We're actively working on more analysis and resources to understand the effects of COVID-19 and social distancing, we'll keep you up to date on developments as they happen.
