Recovery for Tour Operators
Tour Operator Podcast Round Table

On Episode 101 of the Tourpreneur Podcast we invited 3 tourpreneurs from different parts of the world to discuss the recent Tripadvisor White Paper – Beyond COVID-19 – The Road to Recovery for Tour Operators.

  • Analysis of the road to recovery for the global travel and hospitality industry based on extensive quantitative survey and site behavioral data – including five distinct stages to recovery
  • Insight into what each of these five stages look like, how long they will last, and what it will mean for your business planning and marketing strategies in the months and years ahead
  • Specific guidance for hospitality businesses, destinations, brands, and advertisers on the actions you can take now to be ready for each stage of recovery
