More about the report:

The Insight Report was published in collaboration between The Luxury Conversation and ILTM China. The Luxury Conversation is a business intelligence platform, owned by Reuter Communications, the luxury, digital, communications and marketing agency headquartered in Shanghai and with offices in Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai.

Report research was conducted by Reuter: Intelligence, the insights division of Reuter Communications.

Reuter: Intelligence conducted a quantitative survey of 404 affluent Chinese millennial parents in partnership with MobileMeasure. The online survey was fielded among respondents aged 18 to 38 who had at least one child and a combined minimum monthly household income of RMB50,000. The research covered the cities of Beijing, Shanghai, Guanzhou and Chengdu. Fieldwork was conducted in September 2018. Our data analysis is robust and all findings reported are statistically significant to a 95% confidence level.

Big data analytics was provided by Go Capture. We identified the top search terms co-mentioned with ‘family travel’ and ‘family holiday’ across the top online travel aggregator (OTA) sites and reported sentiment by count and % rate. Non-travel social platforms Weibo and WeChat analysis included posts and articles by count and % rate. We also selected all key terms specifically co-mentioned with selected ‘destinations’ + ‘family’ +/- ‘travel’ / ’holiday’ across the key OTA platforms. Buzz share results were reported. All data was for 12 months.
