[Webinar] Post-Covid Tourism Recovery in APAC

As the rollout of vaccines has progressed, countries are increasingly looking to re-open their borders and facilitate a return of international tourism. Approaching ‘herd immunity’ also has implications for domestic tourism, with internal lockdowns less likely. This webinar will look at the Tourism Economics outlook for travel and tourism in the Asia-Pacific region, including for inbound travel, domestic and the role of China as a source market in the recovery. Matthew Burke from STR will also be joining to provide insights on recent developments and the expected recovery in selected countries.
