Good news, bad news in travel industry in 2018

travel show

I attended The New York Times Travel Show last week, a massive gathering of people in the travel industry, which makes up 10.2% of the world’s GDP.

During a keynote address, top leaders claimed 2018 will be a record year for every segment of the travel industry. Despite attacks across the globe, people want to travel and have accepted a new normal and level of uncertainty.

The bad news? The US brand has taken a beating; visitors to our country are down 4% from January-July 2017, translating to the loss of $4.6 billion and 40,000 jobs.
