    Though boycotts have a long and complicated history in our culture, travel boycotts have proven to not only be ineffective, but often negatively impact the very individuals that they were designed to protect. Many strategists are seeing a higher value in collaborating with a destination rather than cancelling. Join us as Destinations International’s Emily Scheiderer sits down with the National Association for College Admission Counseling, American College of Chest Physicians, Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp, and Visit Houston to talk about how they chose to collaborate and generate impact.

    Oxford Economics expects the US to enter a recession in the first half of 2023. This is an ominous prospect as travel spending falls by roughly twice the rate of the economy in a typical recession. However, the market for travel is uniquely well-positioned to weather a downturn given the state of household finances, traveler sentiment, and the business travel recovery cycle. Adam Sacks, President of Tourism Economics, will share the firm’s latest views on the hurdles, risks, and opportunities facing the travel sector over the coming year.
