City tourism: the slow road to recovery

City destinations have been harder hit by the pandemic to date due to a typical reliance on more international and business travel while leisure travellers have sought out less crowded destinations, with more available outdoor activities in the early stages of recovery. Current impacts and expected future trends will be discussed in this session, looking at cities relative to wider travel demand, as well as a ranking of top destination cities.

Please note that we will be repeating the same webinar to cater for the difference in time zones between EMEA, the Americas and APAC:

  • EMEA – Thursday 27th May | 10:00 BST
  • Americas – Thursday 27th May | 16:00 EDT
  • APAC – Friday 28th May | 10:00 HKT
