Are you keen to learn strategies to promote recovery in the tourism sector post COVID-19? Join our online lecture on 26 November at 2 PM Jakarta time, and get insights on effective “opening up” strategies from Professor Noel Scott.
COVID-19 has severely impacted the global tourism and travel sector. In the Asia Pacific region, international arrivals have declined by up to 95 per cent, as nations closed borders to stop the spread of the pandemic. With governments now turning their attention to restarting international travel, there are several challenges to address.
In many tourist destinations, hotels are operating on skeleton staff, restaurants and attractions have closed, and laid off workers may have sought employment elsewhere. In the aviation sector, airlines have reduced capacity, mothballed their aircraft, and laid off staff. Now they must ramp up capacity in uncertain times. Pilots, especially those who fly long haul, may need to receive training before returning to work. Meanwhile, business travellers and event delegates may be less eager to travel.
In this lecture, Professor Noel Scott from University of the Sunshine Coast will discuss strategies to promote recovery in the tourism sector post COVID-19. These strategies will consider the uncertainty of new variants of COVID-19 emerging, vaccination rates and travel policies in both origin and destination countries and forecasting demand for travel.
The e-certificate for participation is available. If you are interested in attending this event, please register yourself by 24 November to this link. Click here to get more information about the lecture and Professor Noel Scott.
