Date: 23 to 25 April 2014
Location: Transamerica Expo Center, São Paulo
Presentation Time: 25 April 12:30-1:30
Presentation: Alexis Frick, Research Associate at Euromonitor International, will offer a presentation on the Consumer Trends and Forces Driving Change in the Travel Industry globally and in Latin America.
The global economy is on the mend and arrivals grew again in 2013 at a rate of 4%, reaching record numbers of over one billion world-wide. The Middle East and Africa demonstrated the highest growth despite continued instability and Asia, especially China, remains a key driver of demand. As smartphones become an indispensable part of modern-day life, travel companies offer consumers an increasing number of services for purchasing, researching and experiencing travel. Online and mobile developments enable consumers to bypass traditional distribution, with the sharing economy going from strength to strength.
Brazil steps into the glare of the global spotlight as host to FIFA 2014 and the Rio Olympic Games in 2016. Business travel and aviation are key bright spots for growth, however the country faces many challenges including civil protests, the rush to complete infrastructure projects and a capacity shortfall, along with travel not being seen as a major spending priority by consumers.
Conference: World Travel Market Latin America, the leading global event for the Latin American travel industry - is the three day must-attend business-to-business (B2B) event which brings the world to Latin America and promotes Latin America to the world.
