Travel and tourism professionals from all over the world reconnected on November 9, for the first day of World Travel Market (WTM) Virtual, which is a three-day event.
This online event includes the Travel Forward Virtual and International Tourism & Investment Conference (ITIC).
The three-day conference sessions will host top politicians, academics, health experts and the world’s media, with the global travel industry aiming for a recovery in 2021.
Highlights of this week’s agenda include Global tourism forecasts from Euromonitor International, the ITIC – International Tourism & Investment Conference, the Responsible Tourism programme, among others.
WTM Senior Director Simon Press said, “The travel and tourism industry is facing its worst crisis in living memory, so WTM Virtual will provide a crucial platform for planning the bounce-back, reconnecting with business partners, forging new connections, and learning about the best way forward.”
The Euromonitor International report launched at WTM Virtual explains why global tourism will take between three and five years to recuperate from Covid-19.
Known as ‘Accelerating Travel Innovations after Coronavirus’, the study will find out how the travel industry is considering new ideas for getting over the devastating impacts of the pandemic.
