Identifying Trends

As an economic barometer, the tourism industry is among the first to bear the brunt of economic slowdown and grapple with uncertainties on future directions. The challenge to find the next big opportunity is getting tougher, as it requires looking beyond the obvious to identify underlying trends and make accurate predictions. So what are the genuine needs of today's global travelers? What gaps are there in the market?

In the 2019 TravelDaily Conference and Digital Travel Show to be held on Aug. 27-29 in Shanghai, we will present emerging trends, business models, products, technologies and the way forward for the industry. The event will bring together attendees from various segments of the tourism sector. The Digital Travel Show, Digital Travel Case Study and other events will help you explore business opportunities.
