Miles Partnership: Vertical Vision: The Latest Research & Best Practices in Short-Form Video
Globally, travel enthusiasts continue to turn to short-format video content for trip inspiration, planning, and booking. Currently, vertical video has a 90% completion rate (vs. 79% completion for horizontal video), and just over 48% of TikTok travelers booked a trip after seeing something on the platform. Younger generations, in particular, are significantly influenced by short-format video content, offering DMOs and the travel industry an opportunity to build brand awareness, showcase destinations, and educate travelers and locals alike.
