Travel Boom: Young Tourists Spent $217 Billion Last Year, More Than Any Other Group | tourism innovation | Scoop.it

Backpackers may finally be getting some respect – at least from an economic standpoint.Young people are traveling more, staying away for longer periods of time and spending more money, a new report indicates.

 

In 2012, $217 billion of the $1.088 trillion tourism “spend” worldwide came from young travelers, an increase that vastly outstripped that of other international travelers, according to a new study of youth and student travel released by Amsterdam-based World Youth Student and Educational Travel Confederation. Young travelers now represent 20 per cent of international tourism, making the group an important economic force.

Andrea Rossi's insight:

"Millennial" travelers – defined as those between 18 and 30 years old – have sharply different business and leisure travel habits and expectations than do their older peers, according to a global study released today by Expedia.com® and Egencia®, the business travel company of the Expedia, Inc. group (NASDAQ: EXPE). The Future of Travel study was conducted across five continents, asking 8,535 employed adults in 24 countries about how they conduct business and leisure travel – their likes, dislikes, preferences and pet peeves. The study aims to discover how millennials will impact the travel landscape as they gain decision-making power at work and purchase power in their personal lives.

One-third of millennials watch no broadcast TV - study

One-third of millennials watch no broadcast TV - study | tourism innovation | Scoop.it
Several studies have been released in recent months that suggest that "cord cutting," or dropping traditional pay TV service in favor of Internet-based alternatives, is no longer only a niche phenomenon.

Via Mattia Nicoletti, Alberto Gago
Andrea Rossi's insight:

"Research from the New York Times presented at an Oct. 10 "audience monetization" summit shows that as many as one-third of "millennials" (people born between the early 1980s and early 2000s) watch no broadcast TV whatsoever. Instead, the research shows that these people "mostly" watch video online."

Are we immersed in a new economy? Or is it an evolution of capitalism?

Vilma Bonilla's curator insight, October 9, 2013 6:47 AM

I am such a proponent of cross-functional collaboration and learning by doing. You will gain better results by fostering teamwork, trust, and allowing employees to learn from each other.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, October 11, 2013 8:21 AM

From the article:


The collaborative enterprise is actually being born demanding a series of positions and competences like: the capacity to make decisions independently, flexibility to work in any place and at any moment with any person, and the capacity of organization. These are the basics of Smart Collaboration.

Technology in tourism: help or hindrance

Technology in tourism: help or hindrance | tourism innovation | Scoop.it

Technology is a tool used to enhance the customer experience; however, it can also be seen as a distraction, according to industry experts.

During the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) Asia Summit 2013, leaders in travel technology gathered to discuss the future potential and current pitfalls that exist within the industry.

“Technology, well-being and design are the three mega-trends associated with the future traveller,” Hong Kong Polytechnic University Professor Kaye-Sung Chon said.

While technology is notably important for the next generation of tourists, its potential is still unclear.
