The Growing Importance of Travel & Tourism to the Global Economy [infographic]

Importance Travel Tourism Infographic

The ever increasing importance of the travel and tourism industry to the global economy is summarised in this excellent infographic from Mario Skrzypczak, Sales and Marketing Manager at Nerval Corporation.

Mario¬†comments, “One reason for the growth of travel & tourism is the rise in the amount of bleisure trips. Bleisure is a combination of business and leisure trips and 72% of business travelers now add a leisure component to business trips.”

Hotels often¬†cater offers and packages to leisure OR business guests. Perhaps there’s an opportunity to create hybrid packages that cater to both markets?

Mario continues, “The hospitality sector needs to properly understand their customer segments and stay relevant to them. There is a great opportunity for hotels and restaurants to stand out from the crowd and create unique experiences for guests on each visit. This will help them to thrive in a market that keeps on growing.”
