The Global Tourism Industry : Growing through Shocks

The travel and tourism sector accounts for almost 10 per cent of global gross domestic product (US$ 7 trillion), supports 277 million jobs around the world, and represents 6 per cent of global exports. What’s more, the industry has significant potential for further growth. The current 1.1 billion international tourist arrivals are expected to grow to 1.8 billion by 2030. New middle classes from countries such as China, senior travellers from the West, and the millennial generation are increasingly shaping travel and tourism globally. Since 2007, the World Economic Forum has published the Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report which provides a quantitative and qualitative assessment of the development of the T&T sector around the World. The quantitative part is based on the “Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index”, a benchmarking composite index that measures “the set of factors and policies that enable the sustainable development of the Travel & Tourism sector, which in turn, contributes to the development and competitiveness of a country”. The index ranks 141 countries across 14 separate dimensions offering a unique Global tool for benchmarking T&T development. The qualitative part provides insights from the industry on the recent developments and future trends of the sector. The most recently published edition ( 2015) focuses on how the travel and tourism sector has responded to economic, security, and health shocks over recent decades. Join Roberto Crotti and Tiffany Misrahi of the World Economic Forum for this presentation of the key findings from their Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report, key trends facing the industry as well as a discussion on their newly-published research on travel security.

Outbound Canada: Winter 2015-16 Travel Intentions

Canadians' outbound trip intentions this winter are down compared to last year. About two-thirds of Canadians responding to the Canadian Tourism Research Institute's (CTRI) biennial travel intentions survey said their longest overnight trip this winter would be outside the country. Even though a similar proportion of travellers as last year intend to vacation in the U.S., overnight leisure trips Stateside are expected to fall below 8 million for the first time since 2011-2012. In addition, a smaller share of Canadians intend travel to Mexico and the Caribbean. Although Europe is not generally a major winter destination, an increasing share of respondents indicated plans to go there this winter. Join Jennifer Hendry of CTRI as she presents the latest results of the survey. CTRI holds more than 20 years worth of travel intentions survey data, allowing for historical data to be considered and future trends to be identified to the benefit of Canada's tourism industry.
