As per the World Tourism Organization's (UNWTO) forecasts from earlier this year, international tourist arrivals were expected to grow by 4% in 2020, which is not as great as the growth seen in 2017 (7%) and 2018 (6%), but it was still enough to continue fueling the tourism industry, which contributes to about 10.4% of the global GDP and approximately 319 million jobs.

Technology Transforming the Travel Industry

Article | February 24, 2020

The travel and leisure industry is undergoing a major evolution with personalisation. Travellers’ experiences can now be deeply customisable at every stage, from research and booking to tailoring the main event itself, and interactions after it has taken place. Choices are plentiful on the internet and whether people realise it or not, they want businesses to provide them with an experience adapted to their needs and preferences. New releases in technology are enabling the transformation of the customer experience through hyper-personalisation, while at the same time increasing the efficiency of business operations. Advancements in MarTech and related tools are increasingly being applied in travel and leisure to make the world seem more connected, empower travellers to explore, simplify the decision-making process, and be on hand to guide users through their journey.
