Key Themes in Travel and Tourism for 2021 - Thematic Research

The future of tourism has fundamentally changed.As COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc in the tourism sector, the consequences will - and already have - fundamentally changed how consumers travel and companies operate.

Long-standing changes to the sector will occur on technological, macroeconomic and industry levels.Some of these changes will impact more than one level.

For example, hypervigilance around health and hygiene has caused a change in traveler demands that will create established changes at all three levels.

An increased need for health to be a priority in travel will surge -
- The implementation of ‘no-touch’ technology through the means of AI and IoT (Technology)
- The popularity of the sharing economy through the provision of cheap, secluded accommodation provided by the likes of Airbnb (Macroeconomic)
- Online travel sales due to consumers looking to avoid high street locations (Industry)

The companies that recognize how these changes in traveler demands impact their operations on these different scales have the best chance of accelerating recovery during and post-pandemic.

Many of the key themes outlined in this report are naturally linked, irrespective of the pillar in which the theme sits, whether it be technology, macroeconomic or industry.

This point can be illustrated when focusing on the technology themes of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. As well as strongly linking to the majority of other technology themes, Artificial Intelligence is strongly linked to themes in the industry pillar, such as -
- Personalization - Major and small scale travel companies are using AI to personalize the planning experience and showcase the best deals to the traveler’s feed instantaneously. The more a customer uses the service, the more information the AI algorithm has available to further customize the search results.
- Online Travel - OTAs are heavy adopters of AI to achieve objectives such as personalization. They often use AI to personalize travel recommendations and boost the user experience. Once a user searches for a specific location on an OTA website such as Booking.com, the algorithm based on machine learning provides personalized results tailored to the specific interests of the user.
- “The reason why tourism executives may not view AI as disruptive is because the technology is already heavily utilized in a range of operations and is enhancing capabilities from an internal and external standpoint.”
