The Big Question.....Will tourism return to how it was before the pandemic or has it been forever disrupted?

For many sectors in the tourism industry, 2019 was filled with momentum and movement, a good year with an even better outlook, then the global pandemic brought our industry to a halt in 2020. Today, travel continues to be heavily impacted by the pandemic, the way people move, interact and enjoy experiences has completely changed.  However the big question on many people’s minds remains, one which has been debated across many platforms and sectors of the industry: Will tourism return to how it was before the pandemic or has it been forever disrupted?

You will have the opportunity to listen to a diverse panel of industry experts about their experience over the past 18 months as they discuss what a post covid tourism industry looks like from their perspective and the lessons they have learnt about operating in a dynamic and ever changing environment. This panel discussion will be about 30-40 minutes. 

We will then break into groups for you to speak with other industry members and up and coming tourism professionals about how you think the tourism industry is positioned for the future - how can we use the lessons and experiences from the turbulent 18 month we have just been through to strengthen the industry for the better moving forward. 

This event will be a combination of varied industry perspectives and the opportunity for an in depth discussion to hear, share and debate in a safe environment. It will be a chance to explore topics that will likely impact not only our careers moving forward in the industry, but also the way we shape the industry as the next generation of leaders in the Victorian tourism industry. 

This event has previously been advertised as “The Great Debate” and will continue to be a platform for us to respectfully share our views about the shape and trajectory of the industry and to kick start attendees to think about how they can impact through their own careers, be that blossoming or established. 

Where is it?

Zoom from the comfort of your home! A zoom link will be emailed to you on the day of the event. Please check your junk/spam folders.

Who's invited?

Everyone that has an interest in the topic, studies or works in the fields of tourism, events, hospitality, travel and accommodation. YTN members and non-members are invited.
