|Analyst reports - focused searches across the 'Big 4' professional services firms websites are an excellent way to gauge industry directions, regional capacity building and regulatory effects.
Be purposeful with your searching - use the available filters in the particular search engine you use to conduct specific, focused searches. Consult the section titled 'Query Modifiers' on this site here. Incorporate a number of these search techniques either to specify the website from which the information is to be retrieved and what type of file format is typically associated with research reports (PDF,DOC,PPT)
For example, searching for reports by filetype (PDF/DOC/PPT) and by website URL ('deloitte.com', 'pwc.com.au', 'home.kpmg', 'ey.com/en_au') is an efficient way to mine a full website for available documents. Note that these professional services firms will also have regional offices so searching directly on the corresponding website for Australia or the Asia-Pacific region will render reports for local markets.

|Deloitte reports cover a broad range of industries including travel and tourism. Far more information is available on the website than might be apparent via the Deloitte search box - be sure to use a web search engine to conduct a focused search on the website.||KPMG supplies an extensive range of publicly available reports alongside a well developed search facility. Consider associated information that might be contained in other reports outside of the industry under investigation - information about travel and leisure as well as the prevailing global conditions make much information provided on this site relevant for inclusion into your analysis.||A shorter selection of publicly available resources are available via the Australia EY portal, however, a broader range of reports on local business conditions make Ernst & Young a worthy source of information for your analysis. A targeted web search is far more effective that the search facility on this corporate website - see here.||Focused web-based research targeting specific reputable sources, still requires the formulation of relevant terms including alternatives in the form of synonyms. PWC features podcasts as part of publicly available media on future trends and topics that effect a range of industries.|
