A year ago, we were just learning about the potential gravity of the COVID-19 virus and cities were shutting down. Today, hope is on the horizon with 320 million doses of the vaccine given globally. What does this mean and how should we prepare? Over 50% of Americans say they are willing to travel once vaccinated or once the general population is vaccinated. A survey by Booking.com discovered that though 43% of travelers want to explore their home country, 21% plan to travel to the other side of the world in 2021. The demand and confidence is increasing.
So what’s next? The guest journey around safety, efficiency and technology has changed. What can you do now to embrace the push into digital transformation? We all were forced to change our processes almost instantly. Let’s embrace this flexibility and find new ways to transform the industry together.
