Event Overview

While most global industry leaders are charting their courses cautiously, some are looking at creating exciting new opportunities or entering new markets in the midst of the crisis.

China's air traffic also achieved a 9.2% growth rate on a year-to-year basis.

How are travel and tourism organizations collaborating to enhance market share and to revitalize the tourism and travel economy?
