A testimonial from Matt Gaffney, President & CEO, Capital Region USA

"CRUSA undertook a pilot research project with the U.S. Dept. of Commerce to expand the Survey of International Air Travelers at Washington Dulles International Airport following decisions by some air carriers to eliminate in-flight surveying. This initiative resulted in 1,768 surveys, in addition to 1,022 surveys collected in-flight, for a total of 2,790 surveys, a 45% increase over 2008. The partnership was responsible for more credible data on overseas arrivals and economic impact for the Capital Region."
