With the global spread of COVID-19, the travel industry is facing an unprecedented crisis. To help industry leaders navigate their response strategy and communicate to their stakeholders and communities, Destination Analysts is fielding a survey of 1,200+ American leisure and business travelers, representing each region of the U.S. These timely insights into feelings and behaviors related to travel will provide important data to gauge the pandemic’s changing impact on travel as a lifestyle priority, as well as when travel demand will rebound—and from which traveler segments and to which types of destinations first.

The Future of Tourism Coalition, and those who have signed up to its 13 Guiding Principles, have set out a vision for the decade ahead. The Coalition is now developing a toolkit based around three drivers for transition, where fundamental changes in how tourism is planned, developed, and managed will create the necessary foundations to make our vision a reality: destination stewardship and stakeholder engagement, managing tourism's impacts, and local and sustainable supply chains. Tourism is at a crossroads – we must choose a different path to build a more resilient, regenerative, equitable, and sustainable tourism economy. But how? Business as usual will be the default option, so unless we are intentional about change, we will revert to old models and practices. Instead, businesses and destinations must find their reset button, and utilize all the tools, support, and best practices available.
