The COVID-19 pandemic has turned the world upside down. Not only the tourism sector but the economy as a whole has come to a standstill. There’s no doubt we are confronted by an outstanding challenge. The first quarter of 2020 has seen a drop of 67 million international arrivals, which represents a loss of US$ 80 billion for the tourism industry. The drop has been felt like a domino-effect across the world: airlines, tour operators, hotels, restaurants, many of which might be on the brink of bankruptcy. A catastrophic scenario including a widespread emergency of companies going out of business.
Society as a whole needs to discover how we will travel tomorrow to boost not only economic recovery but also trust in human cooperation, resilience, and the continued nourishment of cultural bridges that tourism brings about.
Sustainability is key for the tourism of tomorrow. Conservation of biodiversity, respect for the socio-cultural authenticity of host communities, securing social welfare and economic prosperity of host communities, and sustainable use of environmental resources need to be the pillars of the a new post-covid model of tourism.
Travel Tomorrow: Discover the world after Covid-19
On the 16th of June 2020, Buscardini Communications, a Brussels-based communications agency, launched a new global media focused on travel experiences, sustainable tourism, and the impact of Covid-19 on the tourism industry. Travel Tomorrow inspires travelers to rediscover the world, to share information on government tourism measures and recommendations, new health and travel advisories and other relevant information on travel and tourism. Standing at this crossroad, Travel Tomorrow gives voice to every stakeholder in the tourism industry who has been affected by the Covid-19 travel restrictions: airlines and tour operators, hotels, museums, cultural and historical sites, restaurant and coffee-shop owners, among others. We show how they have been impacted, how they are responding, and what they will do differently in the future.
We stimulate people’s imagination to experience the beauty and magic of each culture. We care about the choices we make for the world of tomorrow.
We awake your imagination and take you on a journey to make the planet your home. We believe in the power of diverse cultural stories.
