We don't publish a list of actual questions asked. Still, we understand that it may be helpful for you to have some guidance around the types of questions that are asked.

We try to get a sense of your business, your operations, the food/beverage experience that you offer, how you market and sell it, how your customers engage in your experience, and how satisfied they are with your experience. How is your business or destination a world-class experience in its category? How are travelers inspired to visit?  How your business or destination serve as a role model in the category in which you are applying?  What evidence can you provide to substantiate your above claims? For journalists, we will want to see examples of your work, plus any awards you’ve won. For technology providers, we will need to know about your app or software, marketing materials, and awards won, for example.
