Portland-based media firm MEDIAmerica, publishers of Oregon Business magazine and the well-known 100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon survey, have announced the fourth annual 100 Best Fan-Favorite Destinations in Oregon for 2020.

This year researchers studied over 95,000 reviews, a 43% increase over last year’s reviews, on the most widely used online review sites Google, TripAdvisor and Yelp. Scores were tallied and combined to determine the level of travelers’ overall satisfaction. The scores were then ranked to create the 100 Best Fan-Favorites Destinations list.

The “100 Best” will gain valuable exposure in popular statewide magazines like Oregon Home and Oregon Business, both in print and online. Winners may also promote their achievement with exclusive rights to use the “100 Best” logo on their promotional materials and at point-of-purchase.

The top 100 destinations will once again be charted on a map for visitors and residents to use as a guide for traveling the state.  A total of 75,000 statewide maps will be distributed in 2020 at most of the state’s entry points and visitor centers. The map continues to be very popular, according to our distribution partner Matt Preston of Certified Folder Display Service Inc. who said, “the 100 Best Fan-Favorite Destinations in Oregon brochure continues to be a huge hit in the Travel Oregon Welcome Center program which includes the PDX International Airport!”

“I continue to be amazed at the high level of customer satisfaction many of these destinations deliver year after year. And the average number of reviews per destination continues to grow, proving this is something worth paying attention to,” says Andrew Insinga, CEO of MEDIAmerica.

Craig Peebles, Events Manager at MEDIAmerica adds “As we scour more and more reviews each year the project becomes more involved, but the results continue to be worth it. A ranking based purely on customer satisfaction is a true measure of what makes a great destination.”
