Ai_New_LogoBarcelona, 16th April 2015, 11.30 am

With IATA's New Distribution Capacity (NDC), the airlines industry is now one step closer to delivering more personalised travel. So, will 2015 be the year when "Big Data" combines with the promise of NDC to deliver the right product to the customer at the right time across any channel? Or will the drop in oil prices see the industry take its focuss off the revenues driven from ancillaries and merchandising? These issues will be addressed during the 9th Ancillary Merchandising Conference. This event will bring together industry stakeholders responsible for ancillary revenue generation to discuss the latest trends, best practices, actionable strategies and insights.

WTTC-Logo[1]16th April 2015, 10.30 am

IFEMA, Feria de Madrid

The role of cities in driving Travel & Tourism within a nation’s economy has significantly changed in the past twenty years. The arrival of low cost airlines and the consumer shift towards more, shorter breaks has reinvented the city as destination. Euromonitor's CEO Tim Kitchin will highlight the strategic importance of cities in the global market and will discuss with WTTC Member CEOs and Tourism Ministers:

•    How can cities better incentivise business growth and ensure the right short, medium and long term planning and investment?
•    What are the economic and social benefits or hazards of running mega events and how can a city benefit from the MICE sector?
•    How does a city differentiate itself from domestic and international competitors?
•    How do cities balance the needs of tourists with those of its citizens?

Tourism in Cuba: Winners and Losers in a More Open Market

Amanda BoulierAnalyst Insight by Amanda Boulier - Research Analyst

With the 2014 announcement that the US would seek to normalise relations with Cuba, the future of Cuba’s tourism industry shifted dramatically. While completely normalised tourism relations may still be months or even longer away given the number of important political and economic issues still being negotiated, the sudden thaw between the two nations represents a unique set of challenges – and, ultimately, for some players, opportunity.

Air travel

While Cuba is new to American tourists, tourism is not new to Cuba. Despite the fact that Cuba has received relatively few American tourists compared to other destinations in the region, such as Mexico, the UNWTO reports that nearly three million people visited Cuba in 2013, the most recent year for which data is available, and a number of international airlines already serve the island country. Air Canada, Air France, Aeroflot, Aeromexico, Avianca and Copa Airlines are just a few of the major players currently operating flights to and from Cuba. Even some US-based airlines have offered regular charter flights between Florida and Cuba with increasing frequencies since 2009 as travel restrictions between the US and Cuba started to ease.

Meet Euromonitor at ITB Berlin to Learn More about the Travel Sharing Economy

The travel sharing economy is host to some of the world’s most famous peer-to-peer brands like Airbnb and Uber.  Benefiting from technological disruption, rapid urbanisation, Generation Y’s influence and smartphone proliferation, the sharing economy has taken the travel and tourism industry by storm, tapping into the consumer zeitgeist for sustainable, authentic and local services when it comes to lodging, transport, activities, dining and finance, amongst others.  It’s a love-hate relationship as consumers enjoy the convenience and price of renting from peers, whilst travel players have been caught on the back-foot by the speed of change. Faced with legislative challenges, the future of the sharing economy remains uncertain, however, Euromonitor International expects travel and retail heavyweights to enter the fray and add to the sector’s legitimacy.

Nadejda_PopovaInterview conducted by Nadejda Popova - Senior Travel and Tourism Analyst

Euromonitor International is pleased to present an interview, which focuses on a new Bulgarian social project called Like.Bulgaria and its impact on the travel industry in the country. Nadejda Popova, Senior Analyst – Travel and Tourism, spoke to Nikolay Tonkoff, Creative Director, at like-bulgaria.com.

Can you please introduce the project? What are its main business objectives, overarching digital strategy and available resources? How did it all start?

It all began as a joke. One morning, I had this idea, which I posted on Facebook and then it took off from there. To make a tourism brand is not that easy. Like.Bulgaria has managed to appeal to many people and to be liked by more than 33,000 people on Facebook since it was set up. The reason it was created, back at the start of 2013, was to promote a new Bulgarian tourism logo. As it happened, the new tourism logo caused a big wave of negative reactions among trade representatives and Bulgarian travellers.
