Whether it be the global financial crisis, war and political stability, terrorism or other virus outbreaks, the travel industry has been through the mill at times but it has always demonstrated its resilience and bounced back. The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has a rather different feel to it, though, with the impacts upon the industry being greater than ever, but rest assured there will be a recovery. Just how soon and how strong remains to be seen.
To help provide support to industry colleagues – not just those in the luxury sector but throughout the travel industry – this week I set up a new Facebook group designed to offer support to all members of the industry both during, and in the aftermath of, the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
Whther you’re a hotel receptionist or head honcho of a major travel corporation, this group is for everyone. Whether you’re wanting to share your views or get something off your chest, or you’re looking for practical advice or emotional support, to encourage or learn, we hope you’ll find it’s a place where you can freely share whatever is on your mind and get like-minded support in doing so.
To join the group, please go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/travelindustrysupport
And please, please share with your travel industry friends. The more industry people we have on board, the more we can help one another.
