The Traveller Trails Organised Webinars discussing Strategies to Rebuilding The Tourism Industry In Collaboration with ATPHP.

Rebuilding The Tourism Industry after Corona Pandemic

The speakers present in the webinar were mostly academicians, stakeholders from the tourism industry, from the government sector and members of Tourism and Hospitality Fraternity.

The outbreak of COVID-19 presents the tourism sector with major and evolving challenges. The need of the hour is to stay positive and remember that every dark cloud has a silver lining. The tourism industry will undoubtedly bounce back post COVID-19. 

The goal of this webinar was to brainstorm to assess the impact, gather learning  and revive the tourism  industry at the earliest. 

This webinar played an important role in assembling the thoughts, expertise, vision and opinion of various academicians, bureaucrats and other stakeholders of the tourism Industry. This was particularly poignant during this time of self-isolation as a result of COVID-19.

The speakers spoke at length  about alternate ways of tourism as opposed to mass tourism, rural tourism, employment generation, role of government in supporting the tourism sector, hospitality industry, local tourism, how the tourism sector will develop post COVID- 19,  so on and so forth.

COVID presents to us a lot of challenges & threats but it opens up a wide area of possibilities & opportunities also. There is a long path to be covered and we will have to rebuild a lot of things and look into them with a fresh perspective. We will have to undertake several confidence building measures, renovation or revival of available tourism products, designing of new products, enhancement of knowledge & skill of available workforce engaged in tourist delivery chain and tourism product innovations.  

Health facilities would play an important role in influencing tourism at a particular destination. 

Post COVID, as an immediate measure we would also need to look into setting up some kind of mechanism on how will the Sanitization of Tourism facilities be carried out and how to monitor all of it for transport, accommodation, sightseeing places, roadside facilities etc be carried out. We will have to educate & train the staff who engage with tourists on a daily basis providing various services. 

There are several factors which help a tourist in deciding on which destination he would like to visit. Availability of health facilities and SOP’s followed by service providers may now start playing a crucial role in this decision. Hence we as a state would have to be proactive in our approach in this regard.

Post COVID destinations which provide exclusivity, remoteness, nature and a personalized experience would gain popularity. 

Post COVID constant engagement of Government & Tourism Professional is required and to merge our synergies for a better future.

Rural tourism and community tourism may be the way forward. Government should put more impetus to community based tourism.  This will benefit the host community and also this will open up avenues for income and employment in the host nations. 

With these successful sessions,  we are encouraged to organise more such sessions in future and we shall use The Traveller Trails as a knowledge sharing platform.

Moderators: Prashant Gautam, Panjab University, Chandigarh and Dr. Amit Gangotia, Central University

  1. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The issue is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.

    I’m very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something relating to this.

    Feel free to surf to my web-site: accessing medical cannabis

  2. Thanks for any other informative website. Where else may just I am
    getting that kind of information written in such a perfect manner?

    I’ve a mission that I am just now operating on, and I’ve
    been on the look out for such information.

  3. Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could
    find a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same
    blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

  4. No llevo mucho período usando Internet, probablemente sea
    porque no sabía lo adecuado.

    Pero tengo que reconocer que páginas web como esta me hace
    sospechar muy bien. Esta nombre es %nombre_simple_masculino.dat%
    Y soy un pequeño pueblo de %provincias_espana.dat%, comparto muchos gustos y
    entretenimientos con el resto de la multitud de este blog.

    Lo único que puedo decir es en hora generosa por la pensamiento y el diseño que le habéis dado a esta página.

    Llevo bastante tiempo buscando averiguamiento parecida y no he
    dado con ella.

    A fin de que seré un usuario habitual de la web.

    Muchas gracias lucro todo y espero poder colaborar en mi aporte.

  5. Hi there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re utilizing?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say
    this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend
    a good hosting provider at a honest price? Thanks, I appreciate it!
