What will it take to bring you back after the pandemic? Tourism officials want to know.
Here’s what they think will work:
✓ Interactive experiences like webcams and “virtual” bingo.
✓ Emails and videos about your favorite vacation destination.
✓ Hard work behind the scenes. Think “clean.”
But it may take more than that. The World Tourism Organization had projected that international tourism arrivals would grow 3 to 4 percent this year. It now estimates that arrivals could plummet by 20 to 30 percent because of the coronavirus. That’s a loss of $30 billion to $50 billion in spending.
