Experience Kissimmee partners with Study Hall for strategic business development research

Study Hall Research has completed a strategic business development research initiative for Experience Kissimmee, the tourism and destination bureau for Osceola County, Florida. During November 2013, Study Hall conducted in-depth interviews with sports tournament planners regarding target audience expectations, satisfaction, and Experience Kissimmee’s new branding initiatives and communications. Working with Experience Kissimmee team and their advertising partners, Study Hall delivered key insights and sports tournament planner feedback for the sports-focused branch of Experience Kissimmee, Kissimmee Sports.

Commenting on this new initiative from Experience Kissimmee, Rodney Kayton (Managing Partner, Study Hall) said ‘We are always very appreciative when we gain new clients, especially those located right here in Florida.’ Kayton added ‘The team at Experience Kissimmee had a very clear sense for the type of research needed in order to effectively understand and serve sports tournament planners across the county in 2014 and beyond. Our Study Hall team is pleased to have been tapped to shape, refine and execute this research. More importantly, we are pleased to be able to help Experience Kissimmee and Kissimmee Sports sharpen their strategic planning and their brand messaging.’
