Tourism Forecasting Competition

Tourism is one of the most rapidly growing global industries and tourism forecasting is becoming an increasingly important activity in planning and managing the industry. The time series in this competition have already been studied in detail in a paper by Athanasopoulos, Hyndman, Song and Wu (2010) (to be published in the International Journal of Forecasting). For part one of this contest, entrants must submit forecasts of the next four yearly observations. Forecasts will be tested against the actual future observations for each series.

The overall winner will collect $AUD500 and will be invited to contribute a discussion paper to the International Journal of Forecasting describing their methodology.>
