About Dean Runyan Associates

Reliable, useful economic research, data and recommendations

Dean Runyan Associates has worked for 25 years to assist with market research, planning and economic analysis for travel, tourism, recreation and education projects. Our emphasis is on facilities and destination locations that seek economic or market information for planning, marketing, policy, evaluation and/or design. Projects range from the individual facility or event level to states and the nation.

We feel that our work is an important sector of our economy and society. Our nation faces serious challenges balancing the needs of our natural areas with the imperatives of economic growth and job creation. Moreoever, changing economic conditions and the dynamics of energy costs are particularly important to the travel and recreation industry. This turmoil notwithstanding, the recreation and tourism industry remains one of the most significant industries worldwide, and a leading growth sector in North America. Our focus is on helping travel industry businesses, attractions and destination communities that face these opportunities and challenges.
