European Tourism and Coronavirus: 2020 losses and potential recovery

Large falls in European tourism in 2020 will be described and quantified, as well as the wider economic impacts, as the majority of countries have imposed strict restrictions on travel. As coronavirus has spread worldwide the majority of countries, including all major tourism destinations and source markets, have imposed harsh restrictions on travel.

While these measures are beginning to combat contagion, significant disruption to economic and travel activity remains. There remains significant uncertainty in the duration of the restrictions and hence the magnitude of the declines and subsequent path to recovery, which is also linked to recovery in the wider economy.

Tourism Economics’ latest forecasts and scenarios for growth in international and domestic travel activity in coming years will be discussed with a focus on European destinations.

    Nicole Antonio-Gadsdon and Carol Hay
    Both Carol and Nicole have walked and are walking the same “not so smooth path” - personally and in career, in leadership roles in hospitality/tourism organisations, and each started own business
    Nicole has done this through leading HR in 5 luxury hotel openings, disaster preparedness, response and recovery (hurricane Irma and other storms in the Caribbean that dramatically impact hospitality and tourism in beautiful yet challenging locations), coaching individuals to pivot in their career and much more.
    Carol, through holding senior positions in marketing across the Caribbean Tourism Industry, dealing with a plethora of man-made and natural crises, to launching her own agency six weeks prior to the UK lockdown.
    Both of them are in an industry that has taken a hammering in COVID – like the events business – but are taking the attitude that walking through fire is the only way to properly bounce back.
