The role of cities in driving Travel & Tourism within a nation’s economy has significantly changed in the past twenty years. The arrival of low cost airlines and the consumer shift towards more, shorter breaks has reinvented the city as destination. Euromonitor's CEO Tim Kitchin will highlight the strategic importance of cities in his key note speech, Cities for Success.
Tim’s presentation highlights the fundamental factors driving the irreversible shift to urban living and showcases which cities will drive tourism demand of the future and where travel players should be investing.
Tim will present Euromonitor’s Cities unique Framework for Success, highlighting key priorities as local governments around the world aim to strike the right balance between the demands of tourists and residents to build smart yet sustainable cities.
