Absolutely. And again, whoever anonymous attendee is, if we haven’t reached out to you, I’ll send you my email and we’ll reach out to you right away. We would love to have you join us in the number of new partners joined us just this week.
Karen, another question that I think I don’t know if you want to answer this one, is there a golf tourism component? And that’s, that’s interesting. I know we’ve talked about this kind of very neat, not niche, I guess that’s not the right word, but this kind of this kind of activation, do you want to talk about that
A little bit? Certainly. Yes, we did run a cooperative golf program for a couple of years, but we were not getting any Knuck destination interested. We do work with a few organizations and a few tour operators that focus on golf and Kevin, I’m happy to chat with you and show you how you can get more engaged in the programs that we do on golf with the travel trade in the marketplace.
Great. U S residents sentiment isn’t important ingredient and welcome the international tourists. I could not agree more. Destination analysts did a international travel report that actually we borrowed from for, for this presentation. And what they’re showing is that domestic interest in and acceptance of international travel is growing. That is not to say that it is, it is, it is it has reached a level perhaps that, that we would hope. But people are increasingly, as they feel more confident about being able to move around in their own place as they feel that their their community is opening back up, that they’re able to go to restaurants that they’re able to do the things that they want to do. So too, does their interest in, in welcoming tourists? I am happy to it actually in the link of the document. If you download it from our website is the link to that full survey, which has many pages. And so if you want more details from the research that we pulled, you’ll find it there. Okay. Another, another on anonymous one that Chris, perhaps do you want to answer about marketing intent and lowering restrictions in the USA?
Sure. Good afternoon, everyone. Thanks to Isabel and the team for all they brought forward today. Certainly our partnership with the federal government through the nine federal agencies that have, we have ongoing relationships with helping form those conversations. But as far as the advocacy for that, the majority of that is channeled and led by us travel as the lead advocacy voice in Washington DC. And certainly they’ve done a great job and, and have the priorities in the right spot as it relates to the urgency of when it’s the right time of opening borders and welcoming international visitors back.
Thank you, Chris. I’m looking to see you, so we have another, another golf tourism component. How can we work with brand USA and some of the international countries that brand you would say is focusing currently? Karen, I would, I would kind of throw this you on your way to, yes. We have a variety of programs and opportunities, and we do customized marketing opportunities working with our partners. It’s just, again have a conversation with us if you do not have a brand representative. If you do go from, we have someone from brand, do I say working with you or from your miles team, I encourage you just to send me a note and we’ll make sure that we reach out to you. We are always looking at extending our partner outreach and inclusion into our programs. Thank you very much, Karen.
And then finally, I think we’ve got we’re we’re at time, but there’s one more question on inclusivity and diversity. And as you will hear again, if you join our, our upcoming board meeting on the 19th or our multicultural strategy webinar, a webinar on the 25th, everything that brand USA does embraces diversity and inclusion and black owned businesses and experiences, small businesses, cultural heritage experiences are critically important. And we want to make sure that the reopening of travel impacts those businesses in a very positive way. So if you’ll join us on one of our upcoming webinars, you’ll see more about how we intend to build multicultural content into everything we do. So with that, I think I will point you all in the direction of our corporate website. The, this, this recording will be available there later on today.
And I’m going to suggest to our team that we make it available not only as a recording, but also as a multimedia file so that people can download the document itself and click through to the link so they can see, they can see for themselves some of the research that we share during this call. So thank you very much. This has been a great hour. We will be back to you probably in late June or early July with our next webinar update. And in the meantime, if you’ve got questions, please feel free to reach out to us directly. Thanks everyone. Bye bye.
