TOPEKA, Kan. – This year, Arrivalist and Kansas Department of Wildlife Parks and Tourism (KDWPT) handed out ArrivaLIST most-visited places awards to top visited destinations in Kansas.
Arrivalist is a visitation-intelligence company that empowers marketers with a suite of measurements to evaluate the lifetime value of a visitor. In 2014, KDWPT was the first state agency to partner with Arrivalist to track visitors entering Kansas after visiting KDWPT’s websites online or seeing one of their digital ads. Attractions with the most tourist visits tracked through Arrivalist in 2018 were awarded at a lunch ceremony on Wednesday during the Destination Statehouse event.
Historically, out-of-state visitor information relied on self-reporting, and marketers were only getting a fraction of data they needed to accurately understand visitation behavior. Arrivalist uses concrete data to report actual foot-traffic captured in real time. The company unveiled ArrivaLIST, Kansas’ most-visited sites, to provide consumers, travelers, and businesses with accurate, unbiased travel advice. Arrivalist only captures unique visitors at each attraction once per trip, allowing the company to offer clients the most precise visitation behavior.
The ArrivaLIST winners include a variety of categories. Following are the top winners in each category:
- Attractions winner: Massachusetts Street, Lawrence
