Webinar
Is city travel recovery a return to pre-pandemic norms?

with Dave Goodger, Kieran Ferran and Emma Laverty | Online | October 3, 2023

City tourism recovery continues and our latest forecast update suggests that 2023 will be the year when many markets will regain 2019 levels in terms of total arrivals (international and domestic) with many more on the cusp of a recovery. But the balance of travel segments has changed, and recovery in some international and long-haul segments will take longer for many cities. We will discuss the latest trends in this session as well as the reasons why recovery to date may differ from prior expectations. Any problems associated with over tourism will also be discussed as we reach previous pre-pandemic peaks.

Webinar
Why travel will recover this year in the face of economic headwinds

with Dave Goodger and Helen McDermott | Online | June 23, 2023

2023 will mark a return to pre-pandemic levels of global travel activity, despite a slowing global economy. The reasons for this recovery, and expectations for ongoing growth will be explored within this webinar. The travel sector in advanced economies is proving resilient to the current economic headwinds as households are prioritising a return to leisure travel activities, despite the squeeze on incomes. Corporate travel is also returning in sharp contrast to predictions of the demise of this segment. Emerging markets are also resuming an important role in shaping demand now the majority of travel restrictions are lifted and are growing in importance.

European Travel Trends & Outlook ahead of peak summer season

with Dave Goodger and Jennifer Iduh | Online | June 22, 2023

Both domestic and international travel rebounded in 2022 and has started 2023 strongly to return to very close to pre-pandemic levels of activity, on average. In this webinar we will explore the trends emerging for the peak summer months to understand whether full recovery is likely and which destinations and source markets will be driving growth. This will include a focus on air passenger data and trends, with a contribution from IATA as well as from ETC and the Tourism Economics team.

Why the cruise sector will rebound faster than after the Great Recession

with Dave Goodger and Christian Savelli | Online | June 8, 2023

The cruise sector was hit following the Great Recession by continued increases in capacity while travel demand slowed sharply - deep discounting was required at that time to spur demand. We are now seeing an apparent parallel trend as new cruise capacity spiked in 2022, despite travel remaining well below pre-pandemic norms in most destinations. In this webinar we describe the amount of additional new capacity that will be launched in coming years as well as demand expectations and why we believe sector recovery and cruise pricing will differ in this current cycle.

Brighter skies ahead for global air passenger demand

with Stephen Rooney and Paulos Ashebir Lakew | Online | March 21, 2023

While the economic slowdown is weighing on air passenger demand growth in advanced economies, excess savings will continue to allow realisation and prioritisation of some lingering pent-up demand. Domestic passenger volumes are expected to return to pre-pandemic levels this year in a number of markets, including the US. Growth will now be more evident for emerging markets, and notably for China with a clear timeline for re-opening now established and some uptick in outbound travel demand already evident as a result.

Webinar
Will Travel Prevail through Economic Weakness in 2023?

with Dave Goodger and Adam Sacks | Online | December 12, 2022

Travel rebounded in 2022, fuelled by pent-up demand and excess savings. However, travel volumes remain below pre-pandemic peaks and household spending power is coming under immense pressure from rising costs. In this session we will explore the critical themes of our 2023 travel outlook, including the likelihood of a global economic recession and why travellers may be uniquely positioned to prevail through it.
