“The resilience of the travel industry over the past 14 months has been nothing short of remarkable,” says Travelweek’s Publisher, Devin Kinasz. “The vaccination rollout is heartening and there’s optimism for travel by the end of the year. We’ve heard from many travel agents that bookings for the end of 2021 and into 2022 are strong. Right now however we’re heading into a second summer with restrictions almost certainly still in place, and there are also concerns about programs like CERB and CEWS winding down.”
Kinasz continues: “These are still very challenging times for the travel industry and we’re honoured to have such an incredible group of keynote speakers for ‘Future of Travel: Sunnier Days Ahead’, ready to share their thoughts on the recovery of this great industry.”
Keynote speakers slated to join Kinasz and Travelweek’s editorial team for interviews are:
- Joseph Adamo, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Transat and President, Transat Distribution Canada
- Marsha Walden, CEO, Destination Canada
- Nino Montagnese, Vice President, ACV
- Gustavo Segura, Minister of Tourism, Costa Rica
- Brad Ford, President, Insight Vacations
- Chris Thompson, CEO, Brand USA
