With the continued congestion of the vaccine program, business travel is gradually returning. However, the setting that business travellers now face is different. The world we’re now in has significantly shifted if compared to a just few months before.
Extreme weather and their influence are becoming more and more common. In addition to the recent report by the UN’s Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warning of a ‘code red for humanity’ and climate change is now a threat that none can ignore.
India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, China and Pakistan may also witness extreme weather in the cyclone and monsoon seasons running till November.
Some business travellers are looking beyond the inbound journey to the destination itself with a desire to plunge deeply in the local community.
Travel managers should look at the opportunities offered by a destination to learn about its cultural traditions, indigenous people, native habitats, wildlife, urban and natural spaces.
Happy reading till we connect next month
