After a one-year hiatus, the European travel industry is ready for a fresh, new start. But recharging after a long and painful pause is a lengthy process. Internal and external forces are still in play, creating a rift between recovery and retreat.

In the sequel, expect:

- Challenges in meeting traveler expectations at the precipice of a post-pandemic world

Phocuswright Europe 2021: Writing the Sequel will gather key industry stakeholders throughout the region and the globe to discuss the next phase in travel. Startups, investors, and other industry leaders will share their new playbook to compete
in this new, unstable but promising environment. A second chance like this doesn’t come around very often.
