Partners of FUR

The FUR is linked with a close network of partners who strongly support and influence the work of the association. The network of FUR consultants assists RA customers and interested parties in drafting research and survey questions as well as with the analysis of results.

The Ipsos GmbH with offices in Hamburg and Mölln is one of the most renowned market research institutes and is responsible for the field work and data processing of the Reiseanalyse. Thereby Ipsos is responsible for adherence to methodical standards regarding sampling, interviewer placement and execution of the study with help of the random route method. Furthermore, Ipsos controls and processes the data and provides the results in form of data sets, data medium or in print.

The Institute for Tourism and Recreational Research in Northern Europe (NIT) operates the office of the FUR. The managing director, Professor Dr. Martin Lohmann, is also a scientific advisor of the FUR.

The Verband Internet-Reisevertrieb V.I.R. has been a partner of the Reiseanalyse for years and has actively participated in the development of the RA online. Several methodical results have been published, e.g. at the GOR 08 congress in Hamburg.

The Studienkreis für Tourismus und Entwicklung e.V. (Institute for Tourism and Development) deals with development-related information and education work in tourism. Dr. Dietlind von Laßberg is a member of the board of directors and the advisory network of the FUR.
