Welcome to the very first webinar of ECM's new communication series: POWER OF COMMUNITY!
For a while, the year of 2021 has felt like one of hope and the long-awaited return of travel. Yet already now – only 1.5 months into the new year, the pandemic confronts us with a new deck of challenges, despite the promise of vaccines being distributed. Are we naïve to be optimistic about the return of tourism in 2021? Can we welcome back visitors and still curb the pandemic? Amid the peaks and falls, stop and go of COVID, how can destinations adapt, respond and think ahead? – and to what exactly?
Join us for this first webinar in the new series Power of Community, where we will go into the epic battle of 2021 – the versus or consensus - covid vs vaccine, reopening vs reclosing, optimism vs pessimism.
After a short introduction by Petra Stusek, ECM President, we will be joined by expert speakers to share their views, data and perspectives on 2021 and the time ahead:
- Justin Reid, Director of Destination Marketing, Europe, Middle East & Africa at TripAdvisor
- Olivier Henry-Biabaud, Founder and CEO at TCI Research / TRAVELSAT
- Rasmus Bech Hansen, Co-founder and CEO at Airfinity Ltd.
This webinar is for ECM members only. The recording will be shared afterwards on the ECM Intranet.
