Show #422 – Where Do We Go From Here? The Future of Travel and Tourism

Podcast Number 422

Last June in Show Number 415 we talked about the future of travel considering the COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine. That Show was seven months ago and we have learned a lot about the virus and we have a vaccine that is beginning to get widespread distribution. In that seven months, the future of travel has changed and that is the topic presented in this Show; the latest on the impact of COVID-19 on travel and tourism.

In this episode, I will start with the current impact of the virus on the travel and tourism industry and then move on to the current attitudes about travel and the pandemic. From there I will take you to what the future of travel looks like and then wrap up with what all of this means for the travel professional.
