The impact of COVID-19 on the vacation home industry in Florida

UCF Rosen College of Hospitality Management’s Dick Pope Sr. Institute for Tourism Studies conducted a study to understand the economic impact of the vacation home rentals industry in Florida. Based on this study’s findings, the Institute estimated the impact of the coronavirus COVID-19 related challenges facing by the vacation home industry in Florida.

 This study has three pivotal goals:

  1. Quantify the economic contributions of the vacation home rentals industry (including their direct, indirect and induced impacts) on Florida's economy. This data will show how valuable this industry is to their communities and the State of Florida;
  2. Quantify the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic on the operations of the industry and the State of Florida; and
  3. Provide recommendations to assist in the industry’s recovery

 

From that study, a webinar series was developed to share information with our industry partners. The series discuss different post Covid-19 scenarios, sharing current research-based information and perspectives, which could potentially impact the industry. This study is unique because it will show the value of the vacation home rentals industry to Florida's economy and community.
