Changes require course correction

Digitization, smart technologies and social media are influencing travel habits and are changing booking behavior and the whole customer journey. They give access to new markets, but they also intensify market competition tremendously. Globalization and economic development lead to the emergence of new source markets. Quicker and cheaper means of transport make the world a village and support the traveler's flexibility. Demographic change and urbanization are creating new target groups and travel preferences. Additionally, the individualization of Lifestyles and new destinations are influencing the traveler’s choice. The average duration of stay is continually sinking, regular guests are becoming a rare species. Nevertheless, tourism is still a growth sector: According to IPK research, 2019 travel activity will grow globally further by 4%. Is that also the case in your region or company?
