Beijing Tourism spearheads post-pandemic recovery with global online forum
As the world enters a new era of international travel, Beijing Tourism is leading the way with a two-part online forum series, "Beijing Culture and Tourism Global Online Strategic Forum - Restart Travel, Together with Beijing.” Held on 22-23 September 2020, the forums are aimed at tour operators and travel agencies who manage and sell travel to Beijing, destinations and tourism businesses around the world who can learn from Beijing’s examples, and others working in the tourism industry and travel media. Attendees will come away with a practical understanding of how Beijing is tackling many of the most challenging issues facing international tourism, and looking ahead to the future, by embracing new technology, creative solutions, and learning from past experience.
The two forum sessions will bring together an expert lineup of more than 30 speakers from throughout the tourism industry, including industry leaders such as Airbnb, TripAdvisor, Lufthansa Group, TUI, PATA, WYSE Travel Confederation, Marriott, and many others. Please refer to http://traveltrade.visitBeijing.com.cn/forum for the full program and speaker lineup.
The forum’s events include seven panel discussions and keynote presentations. In the first panel, “Rebuilding Tourism from the Ground Up,” speakers from Beijing’s hospitality sector, travel agencies, aviation industry, World Tourism Alliance, and Beijing Daxing International Airport discuss how tourism destinations and businesses can bounce back from the COVID-19 crisis, taking Beijing as a case study.
