As part of Reiseanalyse (travel analysis), Studienkreis für Tourismus und Entwicklung (Institute for Tourism and Development) surveyed almost 8,000 German citizens on their interest in sophisticated meeting offerings in developing and newly industrialised countries. This involves meetings with local people "at eye level" requested by both sides on the basis of common interests (jobs, hobbies). The Studienkreis used an actual tourist offering as a guideline: the meet-the-people programme in Jamaica, which provides foreign visitors with the opportunity to meet Jamaicans. The free-of-charge programme was developed when mass tourism reached the island, and local people wanted tourists to find out more about the country and its people.
