Significantly Increase Visitation

In the first 12 months, Arizona’s Office of Tourism nearly tripled the number of locations visited by their app users while they were in the state, and more than doubled visitation to less-trafficked areas.


Using its Visit Arizona app, the state of Arizona’s Office of Tourism wanted to increase the number of locations visited while in the state and the time spent in each location, as well as drive traffic to areas where less visitors typically go.


Using the LighthousePE mobile marketing automation platform, Visit Arizona was able to track over one hundred data points, including length of visit, to craft individual personalized messages that enticed visits to nearby locations, based on machine learning of behaviors and preferences.


The number of locations visited expanded dramatically, as did the time spent in each region, drawing visitors to attractions and areas that benefitted economically from the increase in traffic. This data gives Arizona critical insight into visitors behavior to help them understand how different regions are able to attract traffic.

  • Over 250,000 location visits catalogued
  • Over 18,000 personalized recommendation lists generated
