With shutdowns and quarantines happening globally, the COVID-19 crisis is having an unprecedented impact on the travel business. It’s an extremely difficult situation for everyone, but our sector is one that’s been hit the hardest. In our first weekly webinar, join Sojern’s Chief Revenue Officer, Noreen Henry, and Amber Kuo, Director of Travel Insights & Analytics, as they dive into Sojern’s traveler data to provide you with an update on what we see happening around the world.
Getting Through This Together
Is there data that indicates the region is on the road to recovery? What else is our data showing in terms of travel behavior for the rest of the world? Are consumers still searching for travel later in the year? Listen in as they have an informal but data-driven conversation on the current state of the travel industry, and provide a perspective on how this has impacted our approach to the new reality we’re now facing.
