“Tourism Post-COVID: Surfing the Tsunami” – 11am, 28 May
Changes in travel motivation post COVID-19 - what will they be? (and can we 'Build Back Better'?)
‘A new normal’ and ‘tourism is resilient’…….Phrases bandied around with perhaps more wishful thinking than certainty, as we try to make sense of what tourism might look like in a post-COVID world. We’re surfing a huge wave and no-one knows where it’s going to break. But what we can be sure of is that another overworked description, ‘unprecedented’, is as true of the current crisis as it will be of the future.
Tom Buncle FTMI will lead a discussion that tries to look over the horizon and imagine where we’re headed. Tom Buncle runs international destination consultancy Yellow Railroad Ltd. A former CEO of Visit Scotland, he also ran Visit Britain operations in Southeast Asia, Norway and California.
