The Hidden Benefits of Short-Term Business Travel

The Hidden Benefits of Short-Term Business Travel | Innovation and trends in tourism | Scoop.it
Much has been written about long-term expatriate assignments, but for many of us, a more common “assignment” is the short-term business trip — that four-day jaunt to Dubai or the there-and-back trip to Buenos Aires. Too often, these whirlwind treks leave us numb. As we move from one hotel chain to another and order the same Starbucks drink in London that we do in Shanghai or Tokyo, it can feel like just another business trip as opposed to a personally meaningful cross-cultural adventure.

Veille info tourisme - DGE : Tourisme en 2050 : quelques idées pour le futur

Dans nos sociétés dominées par une conception linéaire du temps, le futur, synonyme de progrès économique et social, nous fascine.
Mais, le futur n’est jamais sûr. Il peut avancer, stagner, faire marche arrière…

Tributaire de toutes sortes d’indicateurs, géopolitiques, économiques, environnementaux, démographiques, technologiques, sociétaux, le tourisme a pour sa part réussi depuis l’après-guerre un parcours sans faute : ni pause, ni recul. D’une centaine de millions dans les années soixante, le nombre de touristes internationaux a largement dépassé le milliard. Mieux ! Selon les observations de l’OMT, il atteindrait 1,8 milliard en 2030. Quant au tourisme domestique, malgré les crises économiques, il progresse dans pratiquement tous les pays développés et émergents.

What happens when Airbnb muscles in on your business?

Airbnb is moving into the tours and activities – some think in a very big way.
The company has been talking about it a lot recently, not least at a conference I attended.
Whilst many gushed and appeared in awe, it gave a really great opportunity to hear, instantly and first-hand the reactions of others and how they think it might affect my own business.

La technologie au service de l’écologie dans le Tourisme

La technologie au service de l’écologie dans le Tourisme | Innovation and trends in tourism | Scoop.it
Le secteur du Tourisme représente plus de 5% du PIB mondial, plus de 235 millions d’emplois dans le monde et environ 30% des exportations mondiales de services. A cela, il convient d’ajouter que le Tourisme est souvent synonyme de détérioration et de pollution de l’environnement, de pillage des ressources naturelles, en partie à cause de l’impact du transport aérien et des aménagements. Ernst Haeckel, biologiste allemand, est à l’origine du terme écologie en 1866. Il le définit comme l’étude des relations entre les être vivants et leur environnement. Aujourd’hui et surtout depuis la norme ISO 14001, de nombreuses entreprises et associations tentent de trouver des solutions aux problèmes de la pollution, du  respect de l’environnement et de l’emprunte énergétique dans le Tourisme.
