Personal Fulfilment is the New Ultimate Luxury with John Spence – Chairman & Founder, Karma Group

In today’s changing world, ever greater numbers of people are choosing to travel to increasingly far flung destinations for their vacations, either once or even multiple times per year. In addition to this there are ever more options of styles of accomodation, places to explore and things to do while on holiday. Unique, personalised experiences and vacations are almost becoming expected as the norm, while fewer and fewer travellers are content to merely flop on the beach or by the pool for a typical holiday. Travellers from more traditionally wealthy, so-called “developed” areas of the world such as North American or...

GDPR and other legislative matters

People’s decision about where to travel, what to do when they get there and which hotel or resort to stay in when they decide to take a vacation are certainly all very important, but they also want to feel when they book their holidays that they have complete confidence that their data is safe, and that they have legal protection from the companies they choose to book their travel, accommodation and excursions with. If they don’t have this feeling of safety and protection, then they are likely to look for alternative options. This is why it is so important that businesses...

Adventure travel done differently – G Adventures a global success with Brian Young – Managing Director, EMEA at G Adventures

The world of Travel & Tourism today is very different from how it was over three decades ago, with the internet only just starting to have a big impact in the world by the mid 1990s. There have been several factors that have brought huge changes within this industry including greater access to technology and therefore more information, and rising levels of disposable income. For much of the past most tourists were generally fairly conservative about the style of holidays they took, and relied on travel agents to design standard holidays for them such as a week in a resort near...

Resort Management in a World of Diversity with José Luis Mella – Resorts Operations Director, VRI Europe

The way people choose to travel, the destinations they are deciding to visit and the expectations they have of the accomodation they stay in are in a significant state of change. Of course the situation in the Travel & Tourism sector has always been evolving, as technology, demands and aspirations have adapted, but there has been somewhat of a revolution in recent decades. Travellers are now designing their own holidays and becoming more adventurous in terms of where they choose to travel and what they want to do on their holidays. This represents a big difference from the average traveller...

Why now is the right time for action at this year’s conference RDO9

“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life”. This famous quote by Samuel Johnson, the celebrated 18th Century writer seems as relevant today as when Johnson originally coined it. While there is certainly a huge amount of celebrated and protected historical architecture, London is a city that is constantly changing and developing. Thus we will be returning to the Pestana Chelsea Bridge Hotel and Spa (12th & 13th September) for this year’s conference RDO9. A willingness to change is one of the keys for success, not just for modern metropolises such as London, but also businesses and industries that...
