The Corona virus outbreak has affected all economies around the world. One of the sectors that experienced the most serious contraction was tourism. The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) announced that 2020 was the worst year in global tourism history.
It is predicted that millions of people who have not been able to travel in the last 1 year due to pandemic and restrictions will take action on travel and vacation in 2021 as vaccination studies become more widespread. In this context, the industry is expected to recover this year.
MORE THAN 3 THOUSAND 500 PEOPLE ATTENDED IN 25 COUNTRIES
Simon-Kucher & Partners, an international management consultancy company, conducted a study examining the changing consumer habits in the hotel, tourism and entertainment sector after the epidemic. The results of the research, which was conducted with the participation of more than 3,500 people in 25 countries in December of 2020, revealed that 71 out of every 100 people traveling for holiday purposes may consider traveling in the coming period, but they have some conditions.
While 29 percent of the respondents said they or the majority of the public would expect vaccination for travel, 30 percent said it would be sufficient to lift travel restrictions.
Economists and pioneers of the tourism industry emphasize the great importance of hotel, tourism and entertainment companies to adapt to changing consumer habits and to make the necessary preparations for 2021 and 2022.
