European Travel Trends & Prospects Q2 2024

This webinar is part of the European Travel Commission’s European Tourism – Trends and Prospects project.

International travel in Europe has moved above 2019 levels as we go into the second quarter of 2024. This webinar investigates where this recovery is coming from and what destinations are lagging behind, as well as looking out towards the rest of this year as travel becomes more broad-based across the region. Additionally, STR (part of the CoStar Group) will be presenting the year-to-date developments in the hotel industry across Europe.
