Abstract: This paper aims to develop models and apply them to sensitivity studies in order to predict demand. It provides a deeper understanding of the tourism sector in Northern Portugal and contributes to already existing econometric studies by using the Artificial Neural Networks methodology. This work's focus is on the treatment, analysis, and modelling of time series representing “Monthly Guest Nights in Hotels” in Northern Portugal recorded between January 1987 and December 2005. The model used 4 neurons in the hidden layer with the logistic activation function and was trained using the Resilient Backpropagation algorithm. Each time series forecast depended on 12 preceding values. The analysis of the output forecast data of the selected ANN model showed a reasonably close result compared to the target data.
