With the global spread of COVID-19, the travel industry is facing an unprecedented crisis. To help industry leaders navigate their response strategy and communicate to their stakeholders and communities, Destination Analysts is fielding a weekly survey of 1,200+ American leisure and business travelers, representing each region of the U.S. These timely insights into feelings and behaviors related to travel will provide important data to gauge the pandemic’s changing impact on travel as a lifestyle priority, as well as when travel demand will rebound—and from which traveler segments and to which types of destinations first.

June 29, 2021 | 12:00 p.m. Pacific Time
The roles and responsibilities of DMOs are rapidly changing. In a recent major study, more than 85% of global DMOs indicated they would have a central role in destination management including “sustainability, resident and local business engagement.” But how does your DMO evolve to lead both destination management and destination marketing? Join our global experts for a road map identifying the strategy, resources, skills and services you need. First, Amir Eylon of Longwoods International will share the latest research of traveler sentiment towards recovery from COVID-19 plus how destinations should seek to “build back better.” Chris Seek of Solimar International will then share perspectives from his vast global experience in the development and restructuring of DMOs around the world. Chris will also be joined by two DMO leaders who have helped guide destinations through this process: Jennifer Wesselhoff, President & CEO of Park City Chamber/Bureau, and Kristin Dunne, CEO of Tourism Bay of Plenty in New Zealand. Both will offer their practical experience and advice on how to ensure your DMO is ready to help “build back better.”

The Future of Tourism Coalition, and those who have signed up to its 13 Guiding Principles, have set out a vision for the decade ahead. The Coalition is now developing a toolkit based around three drivers for transition, where fundamental changes in how tourism is planned, developed, and managed will create the necessary foundations to make our vision a reality: destination stewardship and stakeholder engagement, managing tourism's impacts, and local and sustainable supply chains. Tourism is at a crossroads – we must choose a different path to build a more resilient, regenerative, equitable, and sustainable tourism economy. But how? Business as usual will be the default option, so unless we are intentional about change, we will revert to old models and practices. Instead, businesses and destinations must find their reset button, and utilize all the tools, support, and best practices available.
