Since founding Travel Ad Network in 2003, measuring offline response to online advertising has been a passion for Arrivalist’s founder, Cree Lawson. During Cree’s tenure with TAN, he saw how destination marketing organizations needed deeper and broader visitation intelligence, and the need to link that consumer behavior to their marketing efforts. Cree founded Arrivalist to fill this pressing need and has built the platform as an always-on, panoptic “dashboard” for clients and agencies, not just for tourism but for any business that wants to understand relevant consumer visitation patterns. Today, Arrivalist clients include hotels, tourism, attractions, casinos, retail and others. The common thread is that all our clients value unbiased intelligence from a company that is not trying to sell media or audiences, but instead provide actionable consumer insights.
Cree Lawson is serial entrepreneur with over 20 years experience in travel, media and analytics. When not analyzing data and researching new marketplaces, Cree travels around the country presenting Arrivalist’s unique insights in to the way media influences tourism to the 130+ cities, states and countries that Arrivalist counts as clients.
