As all of us in the duty free & travel retail industry had hoped, 2022 has so far brought real signs of hope that the recovery in international travel is under way. The pent-up demand for travel, so often alluded to during the darkest days of the pandemic, is evident in all markets. But that demand is putting severe pressure on airport and airline capacity. And the reopening of some countries, notably in Asia, is only taking place at a gradual, even glacial, pace.
The Travel Outlook H2 2022 webinar, hosted on the TFWA 365 online platform, will explore current and future trends in international travel, looking at what the remaining months of 2022 hold for travel & tourism. The audience will hear from leading research firm m1nd-set Head of Business Development Anna Marchesini on the latest data on air and maritime travel and explore the implications for travel retail. We will also look at the latest rules & health guidelines that are impacting travel around the world with International Air Transport Association Economist and Policy Analyst Martina Bednarikova and European Travel Retail Confederation Secretary General Julie Lassaigne.
