Thursday, September 9 will be dedicated to the TourMIS Users’ Workshop, and the International Seminar will take place on Friday, September 10.
This year’s topic is on Consumer Trends and Changes in Travel, Before and After the Pandemic.
The pandemic Covid-19 has lasted a long time and values, preferences and attitudes have shifted. This will have an impact on the consumer’s future decision-making in general but also specifically for travelling. What were the trends that were developing before the pandemic, are they still going strong or have they changed because of the pandemic? Do you see specific trends in your destination that are different from your surrounding areas? What seems to be the cause? How will we perceive travelling differently after this pandemic (due to shifted attitudes) and what will be the key criteria when choosing a destination or mode of transport? Or will travelling actually decrease after years of growth? The consumer will certainly be a different one after having stayed at home for the last 18 months. This seminar is all about raising understanding about how consumers and potential travellers have changed and what they possibly will be like during the next 6-12 months.
