Travel Industry

The world is opening up again

After more than a year of the pandemic travel is opening up again, and depending on which country at different speeds

Around the world a state of emergency has existed for the last 12 months. The travel industry has been hardest hit, and in many places has come to a standstill. The world is gradually opening up again, not least due to good vaccination progress – although at vastly varying speeds.

Post-COVID-19: Economic Recovery, or sustainability first?

ITB VirtualCon - Panel participants and moderation: Lucienne Damm, Julia Massey, Randy Durband, Rika Jean-François and Peter-Mario Kubsch.

An ITB Virtual Convention on December 10 discussed the future of sustainable tourism in a post-pandemic world.

Themes included: “Will sustainability goals be sacrificed to the economic recovery of the tourism sector? And will the Covid-19 crisis be a catalyst or a pitfall for sustainability in tourism?” The answer was unanimous among the four industry leaders invited to share their opinions. All agreed that sustainability will be a major component of a brand new tourism world.
