  • Crisis Management in Tourism: Managing Destinations of Tomorrow on April 19th is shaping up to be a great event.  Just reread the US National Travel and Tourism Office stats:

    International air traffic to/from the U.S. (1) totaled 209.1 million passengers in 2015, a six percent increase over 2014.

    U.S. citizen travel (93.4 million) was up eight percent and comprised 45 percent of all air traffic, increasing market share. Non-U.S. citizen air travelers (115.7 million) increased by four percent with their market share at 55 percent.  U.S. airlines carried 104.6 million passengers, up two percent, with their share at 50 percent, down from 2014. Foreign flags carried 104.5 million passengers, up 10 percent from 2014.

     

    I would like to put together a group of adventurers to travel overland from Hong Kong to Paris, with some deviations along the new silk roads, seeking to highlight the needs for building infrastructure and helping to create jobs in areas where tourist spending could do a great deal to help achieve global development
