Following a decade of continual growth, the European tourism industry has been devastated by the effects of COVID-19 with nearly all EU countries seriously affected. The departure of the United Kingdom from the EU has further complicated the market with uncertainty in many areas as to how new reciprocal arrangements will work to facilitate UK travellers to the mainland and vice-versa.

The necessity for sustainable recovery for the tourism industry provides an ideal opportunity for Europe to refocus on safer and seamless travel, including for disabled passengers. In addition, there is a growing recognition to develop more sustainable transport and tourism – “greener holidays”. In a post COVID-19 climate, it seems inevitable that the industry will need financial help and investment, but this may stimulate new methods of data management aiding for example the growth of multi-modal transport and destination management.

Join us for a discussion with Robert Evans, Former London Member of European Parliament.
